    AN ACT to amend the Food and Agriculture Research Act  by
changing Section 15.

    Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section 5.  The Food  and  Agriculture  Research  Act  is
amended by changing Section 15 as follows:

    (505 ILCS 82/15)
    Sec.  15.   Allocation  of funds.  Appropriations for the
purposes of this Act shall be made to the Illinois Department
of Agriculture, which shall allocate funds appropriated under
this Act to the following entities  providing  each  the  pro
rata  share  indicated:  the Illinois Agricultural Experiment
Station,  82%;  Southern  Illinois  University   College   of
Agriculture,  11%;  Illinois  State  University Department of
Agriculture, 4%; Western Illinois  University  Department  of
Agriculture,  3%.   Three  years  after the effective date of
this Act and  every  3  years  thereafter,  the  Director  of
Agriculture  shall  review these percentages, ascertain their
appropriateness, and report to the General Assembly.
    To offset the cost of  administering  the  appropriation,
the Department of Agriculture may retain $50,000 or 1/2 of 1%
of the total appropriation, whichever is less.
    To  offset  the  cost  of members of C-FAR incurred while
performing their duties as official group representatives, up
to 1% of the funds appropriated for the purposes of this  Act
may  be  allocated  by the Department of Agriculture to cover
these expenses.  Members shall  serve  without  compensation,
but  shall  be reimbursed for ordinary and necessary expenses
incurred  in  the   performance   of   their   duties.    The
reimbursement  rates  shall not exceed those rates that apply
to State employees.
