Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Establishes guidelines for the State Board of Elections when a provision of State law authorizes voters to file petitions for the submission of a public question to voters in a referendum. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Requires that the State Board of Elections maintain a complete set of petition forms on its web site in a downloadable format.

 Fiscal Note (S-AM1) (State Board of Elections)
 SB 1164 would have major fiscal impacts on the operations of the State Board of Elections. We would need additional appropriations in our budget to accommodate the hiring of at least 3 full-time attorneys who do nothing but write petition forms for interested citizens. In addition, we would need additional appropriation to: (1)hire an additional computer person to oversee and install the forms on our website and (2)to purchase additional hardware and software to maintain downloadable petitions and provide petitions that have been used in the past.
