HB0623 EnrolledLRB100 05653 RJF 15668 b

    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 1. Findings. Identity theft is a major concern for
the State of Illinois and its employees in both the receipt and
management of personal funds. Easy access to salary information
by identity thieves makes it easier for them to open new lines
of credit in their victims' names. Preventing reporting of the
exact amount of State employee salaries preserves employee
privacy by lessening the ease with which identity thieves
obtain information and helps protect State employees from
identity theft.
 
    Section 5. The State Comptroller Act is amended by changing
Sections 20 and 27 as follows:
 
    (15 ILCS 405/20)  (from Ch. 15, par. 220)

Representatives, the Minority Leader of the Senate, and the
Minority Leader of the House of Representatives a report,
showing the amount of warrants drawn on the treasury, on other
funds held by the State Treasurer and on any public funds held
by State agencies, during the preceding fiscal year, and
stating, particularly, on what account they were drawn, and if
drawn on the contingent fund, to whom and for what they were
issued. He or she shall, also, at the same time, report to the
Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House

    Within 60 days after the expiration of each calendar year,
the Comptroller shall compile, from records maintained and
