Bill Title: Amends the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission Act. Changes the definition of "claim of torture" to include allegations of torture occurring throughout the State (rather than occurring within a county of more than 3,000,000 inhabitants). Provides that, subject to appropriation, the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission shall employ a legal staff. Provides that the Act applies to any claims of torture filed after the effective date of the Act (rather than filed not later than 10 years after the effective date of the Act).
