2    AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend House Bill 623 by replacing
3everything after the enacting clause with the following:
4    "Section 1. Findings. Identity theft is a major concern for
5the State of Illinois and its employees in both the receipt and
6management of personal funds. Easy access to salary information
7by identity thieves makes it easier for them to open new lines
8of credit in their victims' names. Preventing reporting of the
9exact amount of State employee salaries preserves employee
10privacy by lessening the ease with which identity thieves
11obtain information and helps protect State employees from
12identity theft.
13    Section 5. The State Comptroller Act is amended by changing
14Sections 20 and 27 as follows:
