Short description: 
COUNTY JAIL-PRISONER-MONEY                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the County Jail Act.  Makes a grammatical  change  in  the      
   Section   that   requires  that  the  cost  and  expense  of  keeping,      
   maintaining, and furnishing the county jail  must  be  paid  from  the      
   county treasury.                                                            
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that when a prisoner is released from  the  county  jail      
   after  the completion of his or her sentence and has money credited to      
   his or her account in the commissary fund, the  sheriff  or  a  person      
   acting on the authority of the sheriff must mail a check in the amount      
   credited  to  the  prisoner's  account  to  the  prisoner's last known      
   address.   If  after  that  30-day  period,  the  check  is   returned      
   undelivered,  the sheriff must transmit the amount of the check to the      
   county treasurer for deposit into the commissary fund.  Provides  that      
   the prisoner may reclaim the money after the 30-day period.                 
          JUDICIAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Ill. Courts Administrative Office)            
          The bill would neither decrease nor increase the number of           
          judges needed.                                                       
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Corrections)                
          There would be no fiscal or prison population impact on DOC.         
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1                                          
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          Creates a local government organization and structure mandate        
          for which no reimbursement is required.                              
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Corrections)                      
          Same as previous correctional note.
