It may provide 24 such person with a grant of money for travel and expenses 25 which may be paid in installments.

The moneys paid into such revolving funds shall -5- LRB9207809DJgcam01 1 be from appropriations to the Department for Committed, 2 Paroled, and Discharged Prisoners. 3 (b) (Blank). 4 (c) Except as otherwise provided in this Code, the 5 Department shall establish procedures to provide written 6 notification of any release of any person who has been 7 convicted of a felony to the State's Attorney and sheriff of 8 the county from which the offender was committed, and the 9 State's Attorney and sheriff of the county into which the 10 offender is to be paroled or released. Except as otherwise 11 provided in this Code, the Department shall establish 12 procedures to provide written notification to the proper law 13 enforcement agency for any municipality of any release of any 14 person who has been convicted of a felony if the arrest of 15 the offender or the commission of the offense took place in 16 the municipality, if the offender is to be paroled or 17 released into the municipality, or if the offender resided in 18 the municipality at the time of the commission of the 19 offense. If a person convicted of a felony who is in the 20 custody of the Department of Corrections or on parole or 21 mandatory supervised release informs the Department that he 22 or she has resided, resides, or will reside at an address 23 that is a housing facility owned, managed, operated, or 24 leased by a public housing agency, the Department must send 25 written notification of that information to the public 26 housing agency that owns, manages, operates, or leases the 27 housing facility. The written notification shall, when 28 possible, be given at least 14 days before release of the 29 person from custody, or as soon thereafter as possible. 30 (c-1) (Blank). 31 (d) Upon the release of a committed person on parole, 32 mandatory supervised release, final discharge or pardon, the 33 Department shall provide such person with information 34 concerning programs and services of the Illinois Department -6- LRB9207809DJgcam01 1 of Public Health to ascertain whether such person has been 2 exposed to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or any 3 identified causative agent of Acquired Immunodeficiency 4 Syndrome (AIDS). 5 (e) Upon the release of a committed person on parole, 6 mandatory supervised release, final discharge, or pardon, the 7 Department shall provide the person who has met the criteria 8 established by the Department with an identification card 9 identifying the person as being on parole, mandatory 10 supervised release, final discharge, or pardon, as the case 11 may be. The Department, in consultation with the Office of 12 the Secretary of State, shall prescribe the form of the 13 identification card, which may be similar to the form of the 14 standard Illinois Identification Card. The Department shall 15 inform the committed person that he or she may present the 16 identification card to the Office of the Secretary of State 17 upon application for a standard Illinois Identification Card 18 in accordance with the Illinois Identification Card Act.

It is 25 the sole responsibility of the committed person requesting 26 the identification card issued by the Department to meet the 27 established criteria. The person's failure to meet the 28 criteria is sufficient reason to deny the committed person 29 the identification card. An identification card issued by 30 the Department under this subsection shall be valid for a 31 period of time not to exceed 30 calendar days from the date 32 the card is issued. The Department shall not be held civilly 33 or criminally liable to anyone because of any act of any 34 person utilizing a card issued by the Department under this -7- LRB9207809DJgcam01 1 subsection. 2 The Department shall adopt rules governing the issuance 3 of identification cards to committed persons being released 4 on parole, mandatory supervised release, final discharge, or 5 pardon. 6 (Source: P.A. 91-506, eff. 8-13-99; 91-695, eff. 4-13-00.)".
