Variant Name: Commission on Labor Laws


Historical Note:

The Commission on Labor Laws was created by the General Assembly in 1969 to make a thorough study of state labor and employment laws and decisions, especially as they pertained to safety and health, labor standards, and labor relations; to study the advisability of revising such laws and collecting them into one code; to recommend legislative and administrative changes to accomplish reforms; and to study the need for legislation in the area of collective negotiations between public employees and state and local governments. It was composed of five House members appointed by the Speaker; five Senate members appointed by the president pro tempore; ten interested public members from the areas of labor, management, and professional labor-management relations, appointed by the Governor; the directors of the Departments of Labor and Personnel; the Superintendent of Safety Inspection and Education; the Superintendent of Women's and Children's Employment; and the director of the Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations at the University of Illinois. The commission was to report to the General Assembly (P.A. 76-763, pp. 1581-1583).

The Commission on Labor Laws was replaced by the Labor Law Revisory Commission which was created by the General Assembly in 1982. It was to make a study of state laws relating to labor and employment, especially unemployment compensation and worker's compensation; study possible revision and codification; and study the advisability of coordinating the various agencies in this field. It was composed of one House member appointed by the Speaker, one House member appointed by the minority leader, one Senate member appointed by the president pro tempore, one Senate member appointed by the minority leader, two public members appointed by the Speaker, one public member appointed by the House minority leader, two public members appointed by the president pro tempore, and one public member appointed by the Senate minority leader. The directors of the Departments of Labor and Commerce and Community Affairs served as ex officio members. It was to report annually to the General Assembly (P.A. 82-772, pp. 169-170). The commission was abolished by the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1175).
