                                        STATE  OF ILLINOIS

ATTORNEY GENERAL                          January 29, 2016

Honorable   Timothy D. Mapes                                                             a
Clerk  of the House                                                                           C.. r-
402  Capitol Building
Springfield, IL 62706                                                                 rn       -

Dear  Clerk Mapes:
         I have set forth on the enclosed page collection statistics for the Attorney General's Office for
 calendar year 2015 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 $319,934,614.00.

         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' 2015 share of the proceeds of the settlement of the litigation instituted by this
 Office against the tobacco industry, which totaled $265,106,131.00. Likewise, these statistics do not
 include the Illinois Estate Tax which is administered directly by the Attorney General. During 2015, the
 Office issued 1,374 certificates of tax determination and discharge reflecting estate tax revenues in the
 amount of $340,873,774.00.

         Also not reported is the $52.5 million that Illinois pension systems received from a settlement
 with Standard & Poor's for misrepresentations about the processes it used to assign credit ratings to
 mortgage-backed  securities. Additionally, Illinois received $4,868,000.00 as the final payment from the
 2012 settlement with Actavis, in the Average Wholesale Price litigation, which alleged that this company
 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 Attorney General in 2015 total $983,282,519.00.
