Rep. Connor-sponsored law amending the School Code goes into effect on July 1, 2020

Legislation

By Local Labs News Service | Aug 10, 2019


A new law sponsored by Rep. John Connor (D-85) that was introduced with the purpose of amending the School Code will go into effect on July 1, 2020, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill HB246 on Jan. 8, when Rep. Anna Moeller (D-43) filed it with the House clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "amend the School Code".

After debate, the House passed the bill and it arrived in the Senate on March 13, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 23. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on Aug. 9. The law is scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2020.

Illinois legislature enacts laws through bills that can be introduced in either the state House of Representatives or the state Senate. Either chamber of the legislature can reject or amend a bill before it becomes law. Legislators sometimes sponsor "shell bills" devoid of substantive provisions, introduced with the intention of being amended later to include actual legislation.

The following table shows the full history of actions on HB246.
