 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 Please be advised that the Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to House Bill 246, as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 There is no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in House Bill 246; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State of Illinois.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill does not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.
