Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person. Provides that a person shall be deemed the owner of a firearm after the firearm is lost or stolen until such loss or theft is reported to the police department or sheriff of the jurisdiction in which the owner resides. Provides that the Department of State Police shall revoke and seize a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued under this Act if the Department finds that the person to whom such card was issued possesses or acquires a firearm and does not submit evidence to the Department of State Police that he or she has been issued in his or her name a liability insurance policy in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person. Effective January 1, 2010.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 687 would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 HB 684 would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Fiscal Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This legislation has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This legislation has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois State Police)
 If HB 687 were to become law, the fiscal impact to the Illinois State Police would be $301,520. To address this issue, the ISP would need to develop a new application with corresponding database to record information regarding the liability insurance for each FOID card holder; develop a mechanism to appropriately flag FOID records as having insurance, or not; and modify LEADS inquiries to include this information in their responses.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate under the State Mandates Act.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 HB 687 would add no additional spending pressure to the General Revenue Fund. However, HB 687 would impact the Firearm Owners Identification Fund and the Illinois State Police in the amount of $301,520.

 Pension Note (Commission on Gov. Forecasting & Accountability)
 Will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill, therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.
