 Fiscal Note (Illinois Historic Preservation Agency)
 The costs that would be created by SB 1363 are estimated to total $215,000 and would fall into three areas: (1) Travel and administrative costs for the Commission members and staff - $20,000 (2) Staff and consultant costs - $135,000 (3) Publications, promotion, and sponsorships - $60,000

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 The costs for the Illinois State Board of Education would be to evaluate. conduct research concerning underground railroads and develop a curriculum for use in the schools regarding the underground railroad. It is not clear what is being evaluated or if a curriculum is being evaluated. This agency generally doesn't conduct research but what is intended may be researching curriculum, and that would be done in the course of curriculum development. The actual development of curriculum would be the single cost-estimate of $15,000 for a team of teachers/editor/staff contact here.
