Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Racial and Ethnic Impact Note Act. Provides that every criminal justice bill which affects pre-trial detention, sentencing, probation, mandatory supervised release, or parole policies in this State shall have prepared for it prior to second reading in the house of introduction, a brief explanatory statement or note, prepared by the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority which shall include, but not be limited to, a statistical analysis of how the proposed change in policy would affect racial and ethnic minorities and any additional information which indicates the impact of the proposed measure on racial and ethnic minorities. Provides that the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority shall work in conjunction with the Department of Corrections, Department of Juvenile Justice, pre-trial service agencies of counties of this State, and the Illinois Sentencing Policy Advisory Council to prepare this statement. Provides that the statement prepared by the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority for a bill designated by a Racial and Ethnic Impact Note shall be delivered to the sponsor within 10 calendar days after its submission, except that when, because of the complexity of the bill, additional time is required for the preparation of the note, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority may notify the sponsor and request an extension of time not to exceed 5 additional days within which the note is to be completed. Provides that if the sponsor of any measure is of the opinion that a Racial and Ethnic Impact Note is not necessary, any member of either house may request that a note be obtained, and in that case the matter shall be decided by a majority vote of those present and voting in the house of which he or she is a member. Makes other changes.
