   remedies  for  violations.  Provides that, if the Attorney General has      
   reason to believe that the interests of Illinois residents  have  been

   goods  or  services  from, or otherwise responds electronically to, an      
   offer in a transmission of unsolicited commercial electronic  mail  is      
   deemed   to   have  authorized  the  initiation  of  transmissions  of      
   unsolicited commercial electronic mail from the person  who  initiated
