40 ILCS 5/16-171from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 16-171

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the State Universities and Downstate Teacher Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that all actions brought by or against the boards of trustees of the respective systems shall be prosecuted or defended by the Attorney General (rather than the Attorney General or other counsel). Effective immediately.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 Home Rule Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) does not create a State mandate.

 Judicial Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the State Universities and Downstate Teacher Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that all actions brought by or against the boards of trustees of the respective systems shall be prosecuted or defended by the Attorney General (rather than the Attorney General or other counsel). Provides that if the boards of trustees of the respective systems pursue a mandamus action under the Code as amended by Senate Bill No. 1 of the 98th General Assembly in the form passed by the General Assembly, then the boards may select the counsel of their choice. Effective immediately.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill 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.

 Correctional Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept of Corrections)
 There are no penalty enhancements associated with SB 1961 (H-AM 2). The bill would have no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of the Attorney General)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) would have minimal fiscal impact on the Office of the Attorney General and is likely to reduce legal costs for SURS and TRS.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of Management and Budget)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) has no fiscal impact on the State.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB 1961 (H-AM 2) will not have any discernible fiscal impact upon either SURS or TRS.
