HB 1437: Criminal Sentencing Impact Note Act

2016

House Bill 1437 created the Criminal Diversion Racial Impact Data Collection Act. The intent of HB 1437 was to provide a mechanism whereby statewide data on race and ethnicity could be systematically collected to provide a basis for racial disparity impact analyses. Pursuant to this, law enforcement, circuit courts, and the state’s Attorney’s office were directed to report specified information to the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority. This included reporting the racial and ethnic composition of persons arrested and released without being charged, the number of persons whose charges were dismissed and the number of persons admitted to a diversion from a prosecution program, as applicable. Where-after an assessment of the quality of information received would be aggregated to the county level and made publicly accessible online by the ICJIA.
