Short description: 
NOT GUILTY INSANITY-NOTICE                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Unified Code of Corrections relating to persons  found      
   not  guilty  by reason of insanity.  Provides that the court may order      
   the  Department  of  Human  Services  to  provide  care  to  a  person      
   conditionally released.  Provides for additional  5  year  periods  of      
   conditional release after a  hearing.  Makes other changes.                 
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts)         
          It has been determined that the bill would neither decrease          
          nor increase the number of judges needed in the State.               
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that when the Department  of  Human  Services  contracts      
   with  an  agency  to  provide  care  for persons who are conditionally      
   released after having been found not guilty by reason of insanity, the      
   contracting process shall require  services  to  be  identified  in  a      
   treatment  plan, the resource requirements to provide  those services,      
   the parties responsible for providing those resources, and the process      
   for securing future treatment  and  supportive  service  and  resource      
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Human Services)                           
          Minimally the cost of $250,000 for the monitoring and court          
          reporting would be for two professional staff and a clerical         
          position. Costs associated with providing treatment plans,           
          medication, and case management could cost up to $5,000 per          
          person. This would require an additional $700,000 for these
