        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          15 ILCS 405/9.03                                                     
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          30 ILCS 210/5                   from Ch. 15, par. 155                
          30 ILCS 500/50-11 new                                                
          30 ILCS 500/50-60                                                    
        Deletes everything.  Amends the Illinois State Collection Act  of      
   1986.    Provides that State agencies may use the Comptroller's Offset      
   System to determine if any State agency is attempting to collect  debt      
   from  a  contractor,  bidder,  or  other  proposed  contracting party.      
   Amends the Illinois Procurement Code.  Provides that no  person  shall      
   submit  a  bid  for or enter into a contract with a State agency under      
   this Code if that person knows or  should  know  that  he  or  she  is      
   delinquent  in the payment of any debt to the State, unless the person      
   has entered into a deferred payment plan to pay off the debt. Provides      
   that every bid submitted to and contract executed by the  State  shall      
   contain   a  certification  by  the  bidder  or  contractor  that  the      
   contractor is not barred from being awarded  a  contract  under  these      
   provisions  and  that the contractor acknowledges that the contracting      
   State agency may declare the contract void  if  the  certification  is      
   false.   Provides  that  if,  during  the  term  of  a  contract,  the      
   contracting agency determines that the contractor is delinquent in the      
   payment  of  a  debt  to  the  State, the State agency may declare the      
   contract void if it determines that voiding the  contract  is  in  the      
   best interests of the State.  Effective July 1, 2002.                       
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.  (Tabled May 22, 2001)                          
        In the Illinois Procurement Code, removes language providing that      
   the Debt Collection Unit shall adopt rules to implement the authori-        
   zation that State agenices may void contracts with contractors who are      
   delinquent State debtors. Provides that the chief procurement officer       
   shall adopt rules as to the factors to be considered in determining         
   whether voiding a contract with a delinquent State debtor is in the         
   State's best interest. Requires the Debt Collection Board to adopt          
   rules to define delinquent payment of a debt, rather than determine         
   the phrase's meaning.
