Short description: 
GENDER VIOLENCE-CIVL LIABILITY                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Gender Violence Act. Provides that any person who has      
   been subjected to sex discrimination may  bring  a  civil  action  for      
   damages, an injunction, or other appropriate relief against the person      
   who  committed  that  act.   Requires  commencement  of such an action      
   within 7 years after the right to bring the action first accrued.           
          FISCAL NOTE (Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts)           
          No dollar estimate of the the fiscal impact of HB 4407 on the        
          judicial branch can be provided, because it cannot be determin-      
          ed how many cases would be filed under the Gender Violence Act.      
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts)         
          There may be an increase in judicial workloads. However, it is       
          not possible to determine what impact the bill will have on          
          the number of judges needed in the State.                            
          FISCAL NOTE (Office of the Governor)                                 
          It does not appear that HB 4407, as introduced, will have a          
          fiscal impact on the budget for the Office of the Governor.          
          This statement does not encompass any other agency or unit that      
          may fall under the purview of the Governor but which has its         
          own individual budget or funding source.                             
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Human Rights)                                  
          The Department of Human Rights anticipates no fiscal impact to       
          its operation if HB 4407 passes.                                     
          FISCAL NOTE (Human Rights Commission)                                
          There would not be a significant fiscal impact on the Human          
          Rights commission in regard to HB4407 due to the fact that           
          these cases would be litigated in civil court.                       
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          HB 4407 does not create a State mandate.
