STATE DEBT NOTE, H-AM 1
(Illinois Economic and Fiscal Commission)
HB 1984, as amended, would not affect the bonding authorization
of the State, and, therefore, has no direct impact on the level
of State indebtedness.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Insurance)
HB 1984, with H-am 1, would create an additional estimated
fiscal impact of approximately $1.9 million for the Department.
Associated costs would include: travel expenses to conduct the
requisite public hearings, hiring of expert/technical staff,
office space, printing and supply needs. This estimate would
change based on the need for professional contractual services
like actuaries and/or the need for other services.
STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1
(Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)
In the opinion of DCCA, HB 1984 with H-am 1 does not create a
State mandate under the State Mandates Act.
