Fiscal Note (Illinois State Police)
The Illinois Attorney General serves as the legal counsel for the state of Illinois. The Illinois Attorney General would have to approve a Special Assistant Attorney General for this purpose. The Illinois Attorney General typically requires reimbursement for travel expenses from the agency being represented. Therefore, we would defer to the Illinois Attorney General concerning costs associated with this legislation becoming law. If the Illinois Attorney General were to agree the Illinois State Police should hire outside legal counsel, the Illinois State Police would be required to cover the attorney's fees.
