Name: Illinois Criminal Code Rewrite and Reform Commission - RG 529


Historical Note: The Governor established the Illinois Criminal Code Rewrite and Reform Commission by executive order (2000-9) on May 4, 2000. Its purpose was to conduct a comprehensive study and analysis of the state’s existing criminal and procedural and sentencing laws; to propose more simple and clear language and a more coherent structure for these laws; to review offenses and penalties for proportionality as well as for public protection, crime deterrence, and offender rehabilitation; and to address the changing nature of crime in such areas as gang activity, drug trafficking, and computer technology. It was composed of thirty-three members, all appointed by the Governor (P.A. 91—, pp. 2318-2319). The commission made its final report to the Governor on January 9, 2003 (Illinois Criminal Code Rewrite and Reform Commission Final Report, 2003).
