   specified  non-violent  felonies.  Establishes  other  conditions   of

          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          (Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)              
          HB 5891 is permissive in nature and does not limit home rule         
          powers and functions. Therefore, in the opinion of DCCA,             
          HB 5891 does not pre-empt home rule authority.                       
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)
