        Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act. Provides  that,  for  taxable      
   years  ending  on  or after December 31, 2002, each taxpayer who is an      
   elementary or secondary education teacher in Illinois and who takes  a      
   qualified  continuing  education  course  is entitled to an income tax      
   credit in the amount of 5% of the amount spent by the taxpayer in  the      
   taxable  year  for the qualified continuing education course. Provides      
   that the State Board of Education must promulgate rules governing  who      
   is  eligible  for  the credit, what constitutes a qualified continuing      
   education  course,  what  expenses  are  includable,  and  any   other      
   necessary  matters.  Provides  that  the tax credit may not reduce the      
   taxpayer's liability to less than zero but may be carried forward  for      
   5  taxable  years.  Exempts  the  credit  from  the sunset provisions.      
   Effective immediately.
