                                       STATE   OF ILLINOIS

 KWAME RAOUL                              January 30, 2019

 Dear Honorable Members  of the Illinois Legislature:

        I have set forth on the enclosed page collection statistics for the Attorney General's Office for
calendar year 2018 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, fines, and penalties.
Collections for these receivables total $332,061,369.

        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' 2018 share of the proceeds of the settlement of the litigation instituted by this
Office against the tobacco industry, which totaled $306,796,475. Likewise, these statistics do not include
the Illinois Estate Tax which is administered directly by the Attorney General. During 2018, the Office
issued 1,174 certificates of tax determination and discharge reflecting estate tax revenues in the amount of
$3 15,087,209.

        Also not reported is the $37.25 million that Illinois pension systems received from settlements
with Royal Bank of Scotland and Wells Fargo arising from alleged misrepresentations made in their
marketing and sale of residential mortgage-backed securities leading tIp to the 2008 economic collapse.
When  the totals from these latter categories are added to the numbers described in the first paragraph, the
combined  collections for the Office of the Attorney General in 2018 total $991,195,053.


                                              Kwame  Raoul
