Amends the Criminal Identification Act. Allows a person to petition the court and the court to order the sealing of: (1) Class 2 felony conviction records for burglary, delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a stolen motor vehicle; (2) Class 3 felony conviction records for theft, retail theft, deceptive practices, and forgery; and (3) Class 4 felony conviction records for possession of cannabis, possession of a controlled substance, violation of the Methamphetamine Precursor Control Act, violation of the Steroid Control Act, prostitution, theft, retail theft, deceptive practices, forgery, and possession of burglary tools (rather than only Class 4 felony convictions for possession of cannabis, possession of a controlled substance, Methamphetamine Precursor Control Act, Steroid Control Act, and prostitution). The sealing is allowed 4 years after termination of the person's last sentence. Requires a person petitioning to seal a drug offense to pass a drug test within the 30 days preceding the filing of the petition to seal.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds to the list of offenses for which sealing of the defendant's criminal record history may be sought a Class 3 felony offense for possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance and limits the sealing of Class 2 offenses under Section 401 of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act to possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance (excluding manufacture and delivery offenses). Provides factors for the court to consider in granting or denying a petition to expunge or. seal a criminal history record.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes provisions permitting the sealing of records for a Class 2 felony conviction for burglary, possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, or possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
