Employee Bonus..$45,000,000;

(50.1) From the funds appropriated to Statewide Employee Benefits for Bonus Pay, effective on the first pay date that occurs on or after October 17, 2022, the Department of Administration shall allocate to state agencies $45,000,000 to provide for a one-time lump sum bonus. Each permanent state employee, in a full-time equivalent position, who has been in continuous state service for at least six months prior to July 1, 2022, shall receive an $1,500 one-time lump sum payment. This payment is not a part of the state employee's base salary and is not earnable compensation for purposes of employer or employee contributions to respective retirement systems. This appropriation may be used for payments to employees only in the same ratio as the employee's base salary is paid from appropriated sources and the employing agency shall pay the bonus for federal and other funded full-time equivalent positions employees from federal or other funds available to the agency in the proportion that such funds are the source of the employee's salary. The earnings limitation on bonuses in Proviso 117.52 of this Act does not apply to this bonus. For institutions of higher education, the funds received for this bonus may be used without uniformity. Unexpended funds appropriated pursuant to this provision may be carried forward to succeeding fiscal years and expended for the same purposes. /
