Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Compulsive Gambling Intervention Act.  Establishes  a      
   pilot  program  in  DuPage  County, Peoria County, East St. Louis, and

   probable  cause  of  the  charged  offense  for which the offender was

   educational  program  for  probation  officers  who   will   supervise      
   offenders  in  the  pilot program.  Amends the Probation and Probation      
   Officers Act to require the Division to administer the  pilot  program      
   established under the Compulsive Gambling Intervention Act.  Effective
