Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code and the Unified Code of Corrections. Transfers language regarding penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or intoxicating compounds from the disposition provision of the Unified Code of Corrections to the DUI provision of the Illinois Vehicle Code. Consolidates certain language within both provisions to create new language within the Illinois Vehicle Code provision and to increase the penalties that may be imposed in certain circumstances. Makes corresponding changes in other provisions of the Unified Code of Corrections and in the Clerks of Courts Act. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to provide that a person commits aggravated DUI if he or she commits DUI while driving a school bus with persons 18 years of age or younger on board (rather than with children on board).
Senate Committee Amendment No. 1 Provides that a person convicted of a second DUI offense committed within 10 years of a previous DUI (rather than a person convicted of a second DUI offense under any circumstances) is subject to specified penalties if the alcohol concentration in his or her blood, breath, or urine is 0.16 or higher.
Senate Floor Amendment No. 2 Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the original bill, as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1.
