Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the FY2003 Budget Implementation Act.  Provides that  the      
   purpose  of  the Act is to make the changes in State programs that are      
   necessary to implement the Governor's FY2003 budget recommendations.        
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 2 (Illinois Gaming Board)                          
          Based on actual 2001 adjusted gross receipts and an additional       
          400 gaming positions for each of the licensees of Grand Vic-         
          toria (Elgin), Empress (Joliet), Harrah's (Joliet), and Holly-       
          wood (Aurora), H-AM 2 would generate an additional $141.8            
          million annually.                                                    
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1                                          
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          In the opinion of DCCA, SB-2288 (H-am 1) does not create a           
          State mandate under the State Mandates Act.                          
          HOME RULE NOTE, H-AM 1                                               
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          The legislation does not contain language indicating a pre-emp-      
          tion of home rule powers and functions. Therefore, in the            
          opinion of DCCA, SB 2288 (H-am 1) does not pre-empt home rule        
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Illinois Gaming Board)                          
          Same as previous fiscal note.                                        
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE, AMENDED (Department of Corrections)               
          There is no population or fiscal impact on the Department.           
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 5.

          Adds reference to:                                                   
          230 ILCS 10/12                  from Ch. 120, par. 2412              
          230 ILCS 10/13                  from Ch. 120, par. 2413              
        Deletes everything. Amends the Riverboat Gambling Act.  Increases      
   the wagering tax rate and the admissions tax.  Decreases the  wagering      
   and  admissions  tax  rates  beginning  when gambling operations begin      
   under a dormant license. Effective immediately.                             
          JUDICIAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                                
          (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)                           
          The bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of           
          judges needed in the State.
