January 30, 2015
Honorable Tim Mapes
Clerk of the House
300 Capitol Building
Springfield, IL 62706
Dear Clerk Mapes:
I have set forth on the enclosed page collection statistics for the Attorney General's
Office for calendar year 2014 as required by §2 of the Uncollected State Claims Act (30 ILCS
205/2). These statistics reflect cases referred to this Office by other agencies for collection.
These cases involve a variety of receivables, including taxes, damage to State property, child
support, unpaid educational loans, fines, and penalties. Collections for these receivables totaled
The attached statistics, however, do not reflect a number of important collection activities
of the Attorney General's Office that do not originate with cases referred by other agencies. For
example, they do not include Illinois' 2014 share of the proceeds of the settlement of the
litigation instituted by this Office against the tobacco industry, which totaled $306,880,465.89.
Likewise, these statistics do not include the Illinois Estate Tax which is administered directly by
the Attorney General. During 2014, the Office issued 1,115 certificates of tax determination and
discharge reflecting estate tax revenues in the amount of $317,601,930.26. Additionally, due to
the settlements with Citigroup and Bank of America, the State will recover $244,000,000.00 in
losses incurred by Illinois' pension systems as a result of the banks' misconduct. And as a result
of settlements with Actavis, Mylan, Sandoz and Par pharmaceutical companies, the State
recovered $120,425,312.00 in the Average Wholesale Price litigation which alleged that these
companies engaged in Medicaid fraud by charging inflated prices for prescription drugs. When
the totals from these latter categories are added to the numbers described in paragraph one, the
combined collections for the Office of the Attomey General in 2014 total $1,333,711,626.07.
