Passage of sunset legislation by the Illinois House was called "a strong first step toward insuring that state agencies will be more' beneficial to the public" by State Rep. Ted Meyer (R- 2«h). The legislation (HB 540), formally called the Regulatory Self-Destruct act, provides that a limited number of state agencies would "expire" and the state's public utilities act and insurance code would automatically be repeated every decade. "One of the most attrac* · tive features of sunset legislation is that it forces persons who run the agencies to run them more for the benefit of the public as a whole rather than for specific private interests," Rep. Meyer said. "The agency personnel would be aware of the periodic review and would want to constantly improve their service and benefit to the public to increase chances for the agency's survival." The bill requires the 33 agencies covered in the act (primarily those regulating professions and occupations in Illinois) to undergo a performance audit every 10 years. Each of the agencies would automatically expire, at staggered intervals, unless the legislature decides to resurrect the agency, "Sunset legislation of this nature shifts the burden on the agency under review to justify its existence," Mey- er said, "and it should be emphasized that this sunset law would "not slop the legislature from shaving bureaucratic waste by eliminating an agency before the 10 year deadlines. "The bill breezed through the House on a 159-tp-O roll call, so you know legislators are aware- of the need for this kind of anti-bureaucracy mechanism. 'Tm hopeful that this bill will pass the Senate as easily as it did the House and be signed into law by GOT. Thompson."
