          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois Commerce Commission)                           
          The Illinois Commerce Commission estimates no fiscal impact          
          on State revenues from HB138.                                        
          HOME RULE NOTE (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          HB 138 contains language which is a denial and limitation of         
          home rule powers and functions. Therefore, in the opinion of         
          DCCA, HB 138 preempts home rule authority.
