   Department. Effective immediately.                                          
          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois Department of Public Aid)                      
          The Department estimates that this legislation would result in       
          an additional $1,050,000 in administrative costs to the Depart-      
          ment as follows. Information systems re-programming would cost       
          DPA an estimated $450,000. Additional staff would be required;       
          the Department estimates that if ten new staff were needed to        
          process the payments made to meet spenddown and post Medicaid        
          eligibility to the computer system, then the additional cost         
          for staff, equipment, space, etc. would be approximately
