    AN ACT concerning State government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Government Buildings Energy Cost Reduction
Act of 1991 is amended by adding Section 25 as follows:
    (20 ILCS 3953/25 new)
    Sec. 25. Fluorescent lighting in State buildings. In order
to reduce energy consumption, all buildings owned or leased by
the State that are 1,000 square feet in size or larger shall,
where practicable, use Energy Star labeled light bulbs as
defined by the Energy Star Program of the United States
Environmental Protection Agency.
    Prior to implementing the use of Energy Star Light Bulbs,
any building to which this Section applies may deplete the
supply of non-Energy Star Light Bulbs it possesses on the
effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General
Assembly. Additionally, as most light bulbs contain mercury,
all buildings to which this Section applies shall ensure the
proper disposal of used light bulbs at a certified hazardous
waste recycling facility.
    Historic buildings that are listed on the Illinois Register
of Historic Places, established pursuant to Section 6 of the
Illinois Historic Preservation Act, are exempt from the
requirements of this Section.
