Legislative Audit Commission - RG 623 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Legislative Audit Commission - RG 623


Historical Note: The Legislative Audit Commission was created as an ongoing legislative support services agency whose purpose was to review state revenues, expenditures, and audits. It was composed of five members of the Senate appointed by the president pro tempore and five members of the House appointed by the Speaker. It received audit reports and other financial statements from the Auditor General and determined if remedial measures or further investigations were required. The commission could direct the Auditor General to undertake specific investigations. In conducting its own investigations the commission was empowered to summon witnesses and cause pertinent records to be surrendered to it. It was to report annually to the General Assembly (L. 1957, pp. 810-812). Whenever a disagreement occurred between the commission and an executive, judicial, or legislative agency, the commission was to advise all responsible officials of that occurrence and in turn receive an explanation within sixty days. (L. 1965, pp. 80-81).
