Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.
Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
There are no penalty enhancements associated with this bill. The bill would have no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.
Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.
State Debt Impact Note (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.
State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
This bill does not create a State mandate.
Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
There is no discernible fiscal impact of any pension system associated with HB 2945.
Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.
Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
The proposed legislation would require law enforcement officers to possess electronic recording equipment in police vehicles to obtain statements from individuals in accordance with the provisions of the bill. At this time, there are no estimates of the equipment costs statewide. However, this cost would be considerable given the number of law enforcement pursuit vehicles at the State and local levels.
Fiscal Note (Illinois State Police)
In order for the Illinois State Police (ISP) to efficiently and effectively implement this mandate, ISP would need to purchase officer worn body cameras. Officer worn body cameras average approximately $899 each. ISP would equip officers similar to the patrol cars, where frontline officers receive body camera. An estimate of the number of officers (Troopers, Sergeants, and Master Sergeants) requiring the equipment is 1,400 officers. Officer worn body cameras would need to be supplied to persons possessing the ranks for Master Sergeant, Sergeant, Special Agent, and Trooper, and incur the cost of yearly maintenance the ISP estimates the following: (1) Equipment = $1,258,600; (2) Programs = $125,000; (3) Training = $420,000; Total first year startup costs = $1,803,600; Estimated recurring costs each successive fiscal year (repair and maintenance) =$25,000.
