New Employee Reporting Obligations for Local Governments

We first reported on HB 222 on May 31, 2012.  That bill has now been signed by the Governor and, effective January 1, 2013, P.A. 97-044 will require all municipalities, townships, and counties, including home rule units, to provide additional data for all employees to the State's Central Management Services for inclusion in the Illinois Transparency and Accountability Portal (ITAP), the state's searchable online informational database.  The reportable data includes the names, titles, current pay rate, and year-to-date pay for all municipal, township, and county employees. The CMS intends to post this information on the ITAP database, which is made available to the public.  Although the law does not provide any detail about how often the government body must supplement this data, the requirement of "year-to-date" pay data suggests that information must be supplemented on a regular basis.
