Illinois: Not Even Close



A committee in the Illinois state legislature is recommending that the legislature create a task force (read: committee) to decide what the government should do about y2k. Deadline for a full report from the task force: December 1, 1998.

Kiss Illinois goodbye. The land of Lincoln has just bought tickets at Ford's Theater.

With the clock ticking closer to the year 2000, an Illinois Senate committee approved legislation Wednesday that would assemble a task force to assess how state agencies will deal with computer problems associated with the new millennium.

The bill sponsored by Sen Kirk Dillard, R-Hinsdale, would require a 20-member group consisting of legislators, local government officials and the director of Central Management Services to report by Dec. 1 on how to deal with the "millennium bug." . . .

The task force would determine how far along Illinois is in the changeover process, offer recommendations and provide a cost estimate. Next year's proposed state budget, introduced by Gov. Jim Edgar last month, sets aside $8 million to help state agencies cope with the millennium change.
