Short description: 
VIDEOTAPED CONFESSIONS-TECH                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987, the Criminal Code of 1961,      
   and the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963.  Adds  a  new  Section  to      
   each  of  these  Acts  concerning  videotaped  confessions.   Each new      
   Section contains only a caption.                                            
          FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED (Criminal Justice Information Authority)        
          If HB 2740, as amended, becomes law, there is expected to be         
          a significant impact on local police agencies. Grant funds           
          necessary to purchase digital video and related equipment for        
          all Illinois law enforcement agencies to tape custodial inter-       
          rogations is estimated to be at least $12.8 million. The Auth-       
          ority would administer these grant funds. Based on the Author-       
          ity's experience with federal grant programs, 5% to 10% of           
          grant funds are needed to properly administer a program. Basing      
          administrative costs on the 5% figure, the Authority estimates       
          that the cost to administer a grant program of this magnitude        
          would be approximately $640,000. Therefore, the total impact         
          on local law enforcement agencies and teh Authority would be         
          approximately $13.4 million.
