INTRODUCTION

 

      Effective February 1, 2004, the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 (25 ILCS 130/3A-1(f)) transferred all powers, duties, rights, responsibilities, personnel, assets, liabilities, and indebtedness of the Pension Laws Commission to the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability. 

.

 

FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

     There were no material findings of noncompliance disclosed during our compliance examination.

 

 

AUDITORíS OPINION

 

   We conducted a compliance examination of the Pension Laws Commission as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act.  We have not audited any financial statements of the Commission for the purpose of expressing an opinion because the agency does not, nor is it required to, prepare financial statements.
