        Amends the Illinois State Auditing  Act.   Requires  the  Auditor      
   General  to  conduct  annual  post-audits  of public transit agencies.      
   Specifies items to be  included  in  the  post-audits.   Requires  the      
   employment  of  an additional Deputy Auditor General to be responsible      
   for the post-audits.  Requires the Auditor General to annually  report      
   the  results  of  audits  of  public  transit  agencies to the General      
   Assembly, the Governor,  and  the  Legislative  Audit  Commission,  to      
   distribute  summaries  to interested parties, to post the results on a      
   web site the Auditor General must create and maintain, and to publicly      
   present the results at hearings requested by the General Assembly or a      
   public transit agency.                                                      
          FISCAL NOTE (Auditor General)                                        
          The number of public transit agencies that would receive State       
          funding under this $4 billion program is unknown. The bill ap-       
          pears to require each dollar passing under the program to be         
          audited, and that audit is required to encompass detailed per-       
          formance measurements as well as fiscal operations. While an         
          exact dollar estimate of the cost of HB 741 cannot be obtained,      
          the Auditor General Office would incur very significant person-      
          nel, travel, report preparation, and publication costs in car-       
          rying out its requirements.
