   410 ILCS 45/2.5 new                                                         

        Amends the Lead Poisoning Prevention Act. Requires the Department      
   of Public Health and the State Board of Education to conduct  a  study      
   to  conclusively  establish  the  direct  correlation between Illinois      
   school districts with high levels of lead poisoning and high levels of      
   learning-disabled students. Requires the Department to  (1)  determine      
   whether  the  Lead  Poisoning  Prevention  Act  in its current form is      
   sufficient to abate the lead poisoning or whether  the  provisions  of      
   the Act should be expanded to accomplish that result and (2) calculate      
   (i)  the  cost of this abatement to the State versus (ii) the monetary      
   and  social  benefit  of  reducing  the  number  of  learning-disabled      
   children  who  require   additional   education   because   of   their      
   disabilities.  Requires  completion  of  the study by January 1, 2003.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          HB 4440 requires the Department of Public Health (DPH) to use        
          data it already has on children with lead poisoning. It re-          
          quires SBE to provide data it already has on students with           
          learning disabilities to DPH. There may be costs for DPH to          
          correlate the data sets and establish the list and to compare        
          the costs of abatement with the costs of educating children          
          with disabilities. These costs should be minor.
