Provides that a person who knowingly and intentionally fails to comply with a subpoena issued by the Inspector General is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Prohibits reprisals against employees of the Authority who make complaints to or disclose information to the Inspector General.

 Fiscal Note (H-AM 1) (Illinois State Toll Highway Authority)
 Establishing an Inspector General position would increase the expenditure of toll revenue by approximately $250,000 per year based upon an estimated salary, investigative staff, clerical assistance, equipment and benefits necessary for this position.
