Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Further amends the Attorney General Act. Provides that the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit shall be transferred from the Illinois State Police to the Office of the Attorney General on October 1, 2023 (rather than on the effective date of the amendatory Act). Removes provisions providing that Illinois State Police personnel engaged in the performance of functions related to the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit shall continue their service within the Office of the Attorney General notwithstanding any qualification requirements under the Attorney General Act. Provides that the transfer provisions under the amendatory Act do not affect any act completed, ratified, or canceled, or any right occurring or established before October 1, 2023 (rather than before the effective date of the amendatory Act). Provides that the transfer provisions under the amendatory Act do not affect any action or proceeding had or commenced before October 1, 2023 (rather than before the effective date of the amendatory Act) in an administrative, civil, or criminal cause regarding any function transferred under this Section, but any such action or proceeding may be continued by the Office of the Attorney General. Amends the Illinois False Claims Act. Removes references to the Illinois State Police from the definition of "investigator". Provides that the Attorney General (rather than the Attorney General or the Illinois State Police) shall diligently investigate a civil violation for false claims under the Act. Provides that the Attorney General may issue subpoenas under the Act (rather than the Attorney General may delegate the authority to issue subpoenas under the Act to the Department of State Police). In provisions concerning the State Whistleblower Reward and Protection Fund, provides that for all cases settled on or after October 1, 2023, one-third of the monies shall be paid to the Attorney General Whistleblower Reward and Protection Fund. Provides that the remaining two-thirds of the monies in the Fund shall be used for payment of awards to Qui Tam plaintiffs and as otherwise specified in this Act, with any remainder to the General Revenue Fund. Provides that the Attorney General shall direct the State Treasurer to make disbursement of funds.
