   accept applications and issue grants for  the  operation  of  projects      
   subject  to  the  availability  of  State  or federal funds and at the      
   discretion of the Secretary.  Deletes the provisions  requiring  basic

          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois Department of Labor)                           
          Programs under the Guaranteed Job Opportunity Act were to have       
          been funded by federal sources. No federal funding was received      
          for the programs, and therefore the programs under this Act          
          were never implemented. HB4377 transfers the responsibilities        
          under the Guaranteed Job Opportunity Act from the Illinois           
          Department of Labor to the Illinois Department of Human Ser-         
          vices. There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Labor as       
          a result of HB 4377.
