    AN ACT concerning revenue.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Department of Human Services Act is amended
by adding Section 10-6 as follows:
    (20 ILCS 1305/10-6 new)
    Sec. 10-6. The Crisis Nursery Fund. The Crisis Nursery Fund
is created as a special fund in the State treasury. From
appropriations to the Department from the Fund, the Department
shall make grants, in equal amounts, to crisis nurseries
located in Illinois. For the purposes of this Section, a
"crisis nursery" is an organization licensed by the Department
that operates on a continuous basis and provides immediate
crisis child care, respite care, parent support, and parent
education groups. A child care center does not qualify as a
crisis nursery under this Section.
    Section 10. The State Finance Act is amended by adding
Section 5.723 as follows:
    (30 ILCS 105/5.723 new)
    Sec. 5.723. The Crisis Nursery Fund.
    Section 15. The Illinois Income Tax Act is amended by
adding Section 507SS as follows:
    (35 ILCS 5/507SS new)
    Sec. 507SS. The crisis nursery checkoff. For taxable years
ending on or after December 31, 2009, the Department shall
print, on its standard individual income tax form, a provision
indicating that, if the taxpayer wishes to contribute to the
Crisis Nursery Fund, as authorized by this amendatory Act of
the 96th General Assembly, then he or she may do so by stating
the amount of the contribution (not less than $1) on the return
and indicating that the contribution will reduce the taxpayer's
refund or increase the amount of payment to accompany the
return. The taxpayer's failure to remit any amount of the
increased payment reduces the contribution accordingly. This
Section does not apply to any amended return.
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.

Effective Date: 8/24/2009
