Provides that subject to appropriation, the Department of State Police shall implement this provision. Provides that this provision becomes operative no later than the earliest of the following: (1) two years after the effective date of this amendatory Act; (2) the date on which the Department of State Police informs law enforcement agencies that the Department is ready to collect samples; or (3) January 1, 2009.
