Fiscal Note (lllinois State Police)
The Illinois State Police (ISP) would have to coordinate with the 102 county sheriffs' departments to implement a procedure to compare conceal carry applicants/card holders against the FOID database to eliminate those prohibited from possessing firearms. This would be done through the development of a computer application that would allow interface with the sheriffs. The ISP estimates it would need two additional personnel to assist the sheriffs in dealing strictly with issues of those prohibited. The ISP is mandated to maintain an automated listing pf permit holders. This information shall be available on-line, upon request, at all times to Illinois law enforcement agencies. In addition, the ISP is required to submit a yearly statistical report to the Governor, the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, indicating the number of permits issued, revoked, suspended, denied and issued after appeal along with other prohibiting information. There is nothing set up in this bill to allow the ISP to receive funding from the Citizens Safety and Self Defense Trust Fund for costs associated with this system.
Firearms & Information Resources Bureau (FIRB) would need the additional personnel and equipment: two additional personnel and equipment required to assist sheriffs for prohibiting issues (approximately $120,000.00 salary/benefits funding required). (1) FOID Mainframe and database modification = $350,000; (2) Application to apply development = $20,000; (3) 2 personnel = $120,000; Total Estimated Start Up Costs = $490,000.
