Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Human Rights Act to create a  Citizens  Crime      
   Commission  to  advise  the General Assembly on crime legislation that      
   shall consist of 10 members, 3 of  whom  shall  be  appointed  by  the      
   Speaker  of  the House of Representatives, 2 by the Minority Leader of      
   the House of Representatives, 3 by the President of the Senate, and  2      
   by the Minority Leader of the Senate, with 2 co-chairpersons, one each      
   chosen  by  the  Speaker  of  the  House  of  Representatives  and the      
   President of the Senate from among the members  they  appoint.     The      
   appointments  shall  be  made by January 1, 1998, for 2 year terms, at      
   the expiration of which the Commission  is  abolished.   Provides  for      
   reimbursement   for   necessary   expenses   for  members.   Effective      
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. Human Rights)                                     
          The Dept. cannot give an accurate fiscal impact at this time.        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 296 fails to create a State mandate       
          under the State Mandates Act.                                        
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB 296 does not preempt home rule authority.                         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that the Governor shall  name  all  10  members  of  the      
   Commission   and designate 2 of them to serve as co-chairs rather than      
   the selection of the  members and the co-chairs  being  divided  among      
   the leadership of the General  Assembly.
