Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Downstate Firefighter and Chicago Firefighter Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Authorizes a firefighter to transfer up to 10 years of creditable service in a downstate firefighter pension fund to the Firemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago upon payment of a specified amount. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 It is difficult to discern the potential impact of HB 688. This bill would only affect Firefighters who earned serviceable credit under a Downstate Police pension fund and are now members of the Firemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago. That amount of firefighters who meet this criterion is currently unavailable. The fiscal impact of this legislation would need to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Chicago Fire Pension Fund's actuary.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Limits the authorization to transfer credit to the period ending 6 months after the effective date of the amendatory Act.

 Fiscal Note (Dept of Insurance)
 HB 688 has no projected fiscal impact upon the Illinois Department of Insurance.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation has determined that no Land Conveyance is required by this bill.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 It is difficult to discern the potential impact of HB 688(H-AM 1). This bill would only affect Firefighters who earned serviceable credit under a Downstate Police pension fund and are now members of the Firemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago. That amount of firefighters who meet this criterion is currently unavailable. The fiscal impact of this legislation would need to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Chicago Fire Pension Fund's actuary.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 688 (H-AM 1) 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.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to House Bill 688 (H-AM 1) as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Judicial Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Correctional Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Insurance)
 HB 688 (H-AM 1) has no projected fiscal impact upon the Illinois Department of Insurance.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does create a State mandate.

 Home Rule Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
