CD CORR-EXERCISE EQUIP PROHIB                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Unified Code of Corrections.  Provides that  prisoners      
   in  Illinois Department of Corrections facilities shall not be allowed      
   access to exercise equipment and shall not be allowed  to  provide  or      
   receive  instruction  in  boxing, wrestling, or martial arts.  Permits      
   wardens to allow prisoners  to  participate  in  jogging,  basketball,      
   stationary  exercise  bicycling,  supervised  calisthenics,  or  other      
   physical  activities that are not designed to increase muscle mass and      
   physical  strength  or  improve   fighting   skills.    Provides   for      
   distribution of prison exercise equipment to the correctional officers      
   of  the  prison  for  use  in  the  staff  recreation  area and if the      
   equipment is not used  by  the  correctional  officers,  it  shall  be      
   distributed to local law enforcement personnel.                             
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 990 fails to create a State mandate       
          under the State Mandates Act.                                        
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. of Corrections)                                    
          There will be a minimal savings from HB990.                          
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          No change from DOC fiscal note.
