        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          745 ILCS 70/4                   from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 5304          
          745 ILCS 70/9                   from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 5309          
        Deletes everything.  Amends the Abortion  Law  of  1975  and  the      
   Right  of  Conscience  Act.  Provides  that  if  a  physician, medical      
   facility, or owner or operator  of  a  medical  facility  declines  to      
   perform or permit an abortion or other form of medical care because it      
   is  against  the person's or entity's conscience, the person or entity

          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                   
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB629, with H-am 1, creates a service        
          mandate wich requires a 50% to 100% reimbursement. The cost, if      
          any, is expected to be minimal. If the General Assembly finds        
          the cost to be less than $1000 per unit of local government, or      
          less than $50,000 in the aggregate for all units of local gov-       
          ernment, no reimbursement is required.                               
          HOME RULE NOTE, H-AM 1                                               
          Does not preempt home rule authority.                                
          FISCAL NOTE, H-am 1 (Dept. of Public Health)                         
          The Dept. expects this legislation would require one additional      
          FTE (HFSN) to respond to inquiries and complaints. Total fiscal      
          implications will be approximately $50,000.
