Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Election  Code  and  the  Secretary  of  State  Act.      
   Requires the State Board of Elections and the Secretary  of  State  to      
   post  certain  voter  registration information on their World Wide Web      
   sites.  Effective immediately.                                              
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)                               
          HB 5956 would cost the State Board of Elections approximately        
          $20,000 to hire as a consultant a bilingual programmer to            
          design and develop a downloadable, printable voter registra-         
          tion form in Spanish.                                                
          FISCAL NOTE (Office of Secretary of State)                           
          If the Secretary of State's Office is to post the information        
          separately from the Board of Elections, the fiscal impact is up      
          to $25,000 annually to build and maintain the search features        
          and database for election authorities, update the voter regis-       
          tration form periodically, and maintain the information on the       
          web site.                                                            
          STATE MANDATES NOTE                                                  
          (Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)              
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 5956 does not create a State mandate      
          under the State Mandates Act.
