  4. Status of Reports & Legislation
    1. Raise the Age
      Stephanie Kollmann gave the RtA report. CPRD detention data has different data categories than those categories collected by the Administrative Office of Illinois Courts (AO). The RtA issue is still under review by the supreme court and they are planning a May review of AO data. We will continue to work with the AO to review their data and use it in the report. Our goals are to keep the court informed and continue to improve relationships so we can establish better data sharing agreements in the future.
    2. SB2151 - Sex Offender Bill
      File review is in progress under the supervision of Anita Weinberg. Literature review and data groups have been meeting regularly, but we need to get the entire team together every 2-3 weeks to put all the components together and finalize the report. Candice will send an e-mail to try to coordinate meetings. The end date was set for adoption at the September Commission meeting.

    3. Website - Donna Taylor continues to work on the website. She will have a couple of design concepts ready for the next Communications meeting. She asked for guidance from the Committee on how they want to set up the primary navigation tabs. ILJJC.org is the website that has been secured. Commissioner Franco-Payne and Jim Bray think we should have ".gov" address. Donna is going to see if IJJC.org is available and will take the recommendations received and put them into a new design concept. More definitive measures will be taken when the Committee is able to have a clearer picture explaining the site.
