(b) Every proposed rule of an agency, the purpose or effect of which is to directly increase or decrease the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single family residence shall have prepared for it, before approval by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules pursuant to the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, a brief explanatory statement or note that shall include a reliable estimate of the anticipated impact.

(25 ILCS 82/10)
Sec. 10. Preparation. The sponsor of each bill, or the agency proposing a rule, to which Section 5 applies, shall present a copy of the bill or proposed rule, with the request for a housing affordability impact note, to the Illinois Housing Development Authority. The housing affordability impact note shall be prepared by the Illinois Housing Development Authority and submitted to the sponsor of the bill or the agency within 5 calendar days, except that whenever, because of the complexity of the measure, additional time is required for the preparation of the housing affordability impact note, the Illinois Housing Development Authority may inform the sponsor of the bill or the agency, and the sponsor or agency may approve an extension of the time within which the note is to be submitted, not to extend, however, beyond June 15, following the date of the request. The Illinois Housing Development Authority may seek assistance from a Statewide trade organization representing the real estate or home building industry in the preparation of a housing affordability impact note. If, in the opinion of the Illinois Housing Development Authority, there is insufficient information to prepare a reliable estimate of the anticipated impact, a statement to that effect can be filed and shall meet the requirements of this Act.

(25 ILCS 82/15)
Sec. 15. Vote on necessity of housing affordability impact notes. Whenever the sponsor of any bill is of the opinion that no housing affordability impact note is required, any member of either house may request that a note be obtained, and in that case the applicability of this Act shall be decided by the majority of those present and voting in the house of which the sponsor is a member.

(25 ILCS 82/20)
Sec. 20. Requisites and contents. The note shall be factual in nature, as brief and concise as may be, and shall provide a reliable estimate in dollars, and, in addition, it shall include both the immediate effect and, if determinable or reasonably foreseeable, the long range effect of the measure. A housing affordability impact note shall be prepared on the basis of a single family residence and may include an estimate for a larger development as an analysis of the long range effect of a measure. If, after careful investigation, it is determined that no dollar estimate is possible, the note shall contain a statement to that effect, setting forth the reasons why no dollar estimate can be given. A brief summary or work sheet of computations used in arriving at housing affordability impact note figures shall be included.

(Source: P.A. 87-1149.)


(25 ILCS 82/30)
Sec. 30. Appearance of State officials and employees in support or opposition of measure. The fact that a housing affordability impact note is prepared for any bill or proposed rule shall not preclude or restrict the appearance before any committee of the General Assembly, or before the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, of any official or authorized employee of the Illinois Housing Development Authority who desires to be heard in support of or in opposition to the measure.
(Source: P.A. 87-1149; 88-61.)


(25 ILCS 82/35)
Sec. 35. Amendment of bill necessitating statement of fiscal effect of proposed amendment. Whenever any committee of either house reports any bill with an amendment that will substantially affect the figures stated in the housing affordability impact note attached to the measure at the time of its referral to the committee, there shall be included with the report of the committee a statement of the effect of the change proposed by the amendment reported if desired by a majority of the committee. Whenever any bill is amended on the floor of either house to substantially affect the figures as stated in the housing affordability impact note attached to the bill before the amendment, a majority of the members of that house may propose that no action shall be taken on the amendment until the sponsor of the amendment presents to the members a statement of the housing affordability impact of the proposed amendment.
