Provides that the notification requirements apply in addition to any owner and lienholder notice requirements under the Illinois Vehicle Code relating to the removal or towing of an abandoned, lost, stolen, or unclaimed vehicle. Provides penalties for noncompliance. Provides that notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, a person, firm, or private corporation seeking to impose storage fees for a vehicle in its possession may not foreclose or otherwise enforce its lien unless it first complies with specified notification requirements.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Removes language providing that a person, firm, or private corporation seeking to impose fees in connection with the furnishing of storage for a vehicle shall provide notice of the fees to the vehicle owner of record as well as to the lienholder of record and makes corresponding changes. Provides that the notice shall be sent return receipt requested and that the entity seeking to impose fees shall furnish a copy of the certified mail receipt to the lienholder upon request. Removes language authorizing the award of attorney's fees. Provides that the date on which the assessment and accrual of storage fees may commence is the date of the impoundment of the vehicle, subject to any applicable limitations set forth by a municipality authorizing the vehicle removal. Provides that if the vehicle that is incurring fees is registered in a state other than Illinois, the assessment and accrual of storage fees may commence on the date that the request for lienholder information is filed by the commercial vehicle relocator or other private towing service with the applicable administrative agency or office in that state if specified conditions are met. Provides that provisions in the Labor and Storage Lien Act and the Labor and Storage Lien (Small Amount) Act do not apply to a municipality with 1,000,000 or more inhabitants that is seeking to impose storage fees for a vehicle in its possession. Makes other changes. Changes the effective date to 90 days after becoming law.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that lienholders shall be provided with the opportunity to inspect a vehicle on the premises where the vehicle is stored within 2 business days of the lienholder's request. Provides that certain notices shall be provided to lienholders of record within 2 business days rather than within one business day.
