Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:
10 ILCS 5/8-1
Adds reference to:
10 ILCS 5/1A-16.6
10 ILCS 5/1A-16.8
625 ILCS 5/2-105from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 2-105

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Election Code. Provides that whenever a designated government agency serves a member of the public, the agency shall inform the individual of the qualifications to register to vote in Illinois and provide an opportunity to attest to meeting those qualifications. Provides that the employee of the agency shall notify the individual that his or her personal information shall be transferred to the State Board of Elections and the appropriate election authority for the purpose of creating an electronic voter registration application, and that the individual will only be registered to vote if he or she meets the qualifications to register to vote in Illinois. Requires the agency to transfer the personal information, including all records of documents relating to identity, address, or citizenship, for every applicant regardless of whether the individual executed an attestation. Establishes procedures for the Board to process the voter registration information provided. Provides for what notices shall be mailed to the applicant and procedures for the State Board of Elections to process the voter registration data and in cases of accidental or inadvertent registration. Provides that certain information provided by the applicant is confidential. Requires the Board, election authorities that maintain a website, and designated government agencies to provide information concerning the new registration procedures. Requires the State Board of Elections to hold at least one public hearing on implementing the amendatory Act. Provides that certain shall be implemented no later than July 1, 2017 for designated government agencies maintained by the Secretary of State and no later than January 1, 2018 for all other designated government agencies maintained by the State. Requires the State Board of Elections to cross-reference certain information at least 6 times a year. Includes any federal source that agrees to submit personal identification information to the State for voter registration purposes and any other reliable State government source the State Board of Elections may designate in the definition of "designated government agency". Makes conforming changes. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to make conforming changes. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Provides that the designated government agency shall inform the individual that the identity of the designated government agency transferring voter registration information is confidential. Requires the Driver Services Department of the Secretary of State to send certain information to the State Board of Elections for every applicant, regardless of whether or not the individual attested to his or her eligibility to register to vote. Provides that all other designated government agencies shall send this information to the State Board only if the individual attested that he or she is eligible to register to vote (instead of the individual did not provide an attestation during the agency transaction, the election authority shall not treat the application as complete or add the individual to the voter registration list until the expiration of a period of time established by rule). Makes changes to the information that must be sent in a notice. Provides that certain applicants must provide identification that complies with the federal Help America Vote Act of 2002. Removes provisions concerning transferring certain information. Provides that certain provisions must be implemented no later than January 1, 2018 for all agencies (rather than July 1, 2017 for all designated government agencies maintained by the Secretary of State and no later than January 1, 2016 for all other designated government agencies). Makes changes to the notice that must be given to persons applying at a driver services facility of the Secretary of State. Makes other changes.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of the Secretary of State)
 Because of the delayed implementation date in SB250 (H-AM 2) and due to compliance with SB172 (Public Act 98-1171), we estimate no additional fiscal impact at this time.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (State Board of Elections)
 To allow for disk storage, backup hardware, tapes, one senior developer, and a mid-level developer, the State Board of Elections estimates a fiscal need of approximately $845,000.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB 250, (H-AM 2) 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.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of Management and Budget)
 It is unknown if the State Board of Elections currently has systems in place to implement, therefore the fiscal impact cannot be determined.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB 250 (H-AM 2) will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 3 (State Board of Elections)

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 3 (Office of the Secretary of State)
 Because of the delayed effective date and the Secretary of State's current compliance with provisions of SB 172 (PA 98-1171), SB 250 (H-AM 3) has no fiscal impact on the Office of the Secretary of State.

 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.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 3 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.
