Name: Citizens Assembly - RG 624


Historical Note:

The Citizens Assembly was created by the General Assembly in 1985 as an ongoing legislative support services agency. It is composed of fourteen members with two each being co-chairpersons of each of its seven advisory councils. These include the Citizens Council on Children, Citizens Council on Economic Development, Citizens Council on Energy Resources, Citizens Council on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, Citizens Council on Public Aid, Citizens Council on School Problems, and Citizens Council on Women. Each council is composed of sixteen members appointed by the House and Senate leadership of both parties. No more than two members of any council could be members of the General Assembly. Each council directs, oversees, and approves studies relating to its subject area and promotes recommended programs or legislation (P.A. 84-15, pp. 300-308). The Citizens Assembly and its related councils replaced the Commission on Children, Commission for Economic Development, Illinois Energy Resources Commission, Commission on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, Illinois Public Aid Commission, Commission to Survey and Study the Problems Pertaining to Public Schools, and the Commission on the Status of Women, all of which were allowed to expire in 1985 (P.A. 83-1256, pp. 1170 and 1173).
