CIV PRO-ENFORCE JUDGMENTS                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Civil Procedure with regard to enforcement  of      
   judgments.    Deletes  provisions  requiring  the  officer  holding  a      
   certified copy of the judgment to summon 3  persons  to  be  sworn  as      
   commissioners  and  to  appraise  the  property.   Provides  that  the      
   judgment creditors or their heirs or assigns shall provide the officer      
   with  an  appraisal  of  the  property by a State licensed real estate      
   appraiser. Provides that the officer shall mail or cause to be  mailed      
   to  the  judgment debtor a notice indicating that the property will be      
   sold unless the judgment is satisfied.  The notice shall  contain  the      
   date  of the scheduled sale, which shall be no less than 60 days after      
   the date of the notice.   Effective immediately.                            
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that the required appraisal  shall  be  conducted  by  a      
   State  certified  general  real  estate appraiser or a State certified      
   residential real estate appraiser (rather than a State  licensed  real      
   estate appraiser).                                                          
          JUDICIAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                                
          (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)                           
          The bill would neither decrease nor increase the number of           
          judges needed in the State.                                          
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1                                                 
        Provides that when the State certified appraiser (rather than          
   the commissioners) decides that the property cannot be divided              
   without damage to the parties, the appraiser shall make and sign an         
   appraisal of the property. Makes a technical change.                        
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Provides that the required notice must be mailed by certified
