Information System is the legislative support service agency responsible
for providing the computer services and technical guidance required
by the General Assembly and its committees, commissions and agencies.
The creation of the system can be traced directly
to recommendations made in 1967 by the Illinois Commission on
the Organization of the General Assembly. That commission identified
areas where data processing could be applied to the operations
of the General Assembly to improve the accuracy and timeliness
of needed information and make it more readily available to legislators.
The General Assembly and its agencies have
rapidly expanded the applications and use of computerized data
bases. These systems are used for drafting, processing, printing,
filing, and handling of bills, resolutions, journals, calendars,
committee reports, research reports, and other legislative documents.
The use of these services and systems must be coordinated to ensure
compatibility, facilitate the exchange of information and achieve
The system is responsible for the operation
of the legislative data center and associated equipment and software.
Among the applications supported by this facility are the bill
status, bill drafting, and Illinois Compiled Statutes data base.
The system, in cooperation with the Secretary of State and the
Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, also is responsible for
the development and maintenance of the Illinois Administrative
Code data base.
