 Fiscal Note (Illiinois State Police)
 House Bill 1952 provides law enforcement agencies that initiated a criminal violation of the Cannabis Control or Drug Paraphernalia Control Acts, would have to automatically expunge juvenile records of a person who committed a criminal violation on or before January 1 and July 1 of each year. Automatic expungement outside the judicial process will not allow for the collection of statutory fees, which cover administrative costs. While existing personnel may be used to develop and implement computer programming to carry out the automatic expungement of electronic records, our records unit who handles physical records would need additional staff The cost of one office specialist in our records unit is $113,583, which includes personal services and fringe benefits (retirement, social security and insurance). If House Bill 1952 were to become law, we would hire three additional records specialists at a cost of approximately $340,749.
