Amends the Court of Claims Act and repeals the State Lawsuit
Immunity Act. Provides that the Court of Claims is abolished and
that the Court of Claims shall transfer to the Circuit Courts all
cases pending before the Court of Claims. Provides that other
statutory references to the Court of Claims shall be construed as
references to the Circuit Court. Effective immediately, except some
portions take effect on July 1, 2002.
FISCAL NOTE (Court of Claims)
The fiscal impact on the Court of Claims would be the elimina-
tion of all funding to the Court of Claims. The Court of Claims
expended $48.7 million in FY 2000. Grant expenditures to pay
awarded claims totaled $47.5 million, $39.2 million of which
was GRF. Elimination of the Court of Claims would increase the
amount of claims paid by the State of Illinois. The amount of
the increase is unknown. The Circuit Court and the Attorney
General's Office may be fiscally impacted by this legislation.
JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts)
There will be a significant increase in judicial workloads as a
result of this bill. HB 2256 will increase the number of judges
needed in the State, however, it is not possible to determine
the number of additional judges needed, because the degree to
which the bill would increase litigation against the State of
Illinois is unknown.
