 Correctional Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Corrections)
 There are no penalty enhancements associated with this bill. The bill would have no fiscal or population impact on the Department.

 Home Rule Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
  SB 1715 (H-AM 1) would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Natural Resources)
 The fiscal impact of SB 1715 (H-AM 1) on the Department of Natural Resources will be $7,779,601 annually. Per the legislation, the Department is the chief State agency charged with regulating high volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing operations and ensuring compliance with the Hydraulic Fracturing Regulatory Act. The legislation provides for a permit application fee of $11,000 which will ensure cost recovery for the Department’s expenses related to its regulatory, enforcement, and compliance operations.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Pension Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Judicial Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.
