CIV PRO-IMPOUNDMENT REGULATION                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the State Finance Act, the Court of Claims  Act,  and  the      
   Code   of   Civil  Procedure.  Authorizes  taxpayer  suits  to  compel      
   expenditure of appropriated State moneys that have been  impounded  by      
   an officer or officers of State government.  Provides for commencement      
   of the action in the circuit court, and requires notice to the General      
   Assembly.  Provides  for adoption of a joint resolution by the General      
   Assembly to affirm the impoundment.  Makes impoundment, without such a      
   joint resolution or in violation of  a  court  order,  an  impeachable      
   offense except in the case of the Governor.  Effective immediately.
