Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Provides that any person shall be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor where he or she permits, allows, or hosts a gathering of 2 or more persons at a residence which he or she occupies or any other private property, public place, or premises under his or her control where any one or more of the persons is under 21 years of age and (1) the person occupying the residence or controlling the private property, public place, or premises knows or reasonably should know that any such person under the age of 21 is in possession of or is consuming any alcoholic beverage; and (2) the possession or consumption of the alcohol by the person under 21 is not otherwise permitted by the Act. Provides that in addition to being guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, the sentence of any person who violates the provisions of the amendatory Act shall include, but shall not be limited to, a fine of not less than $500. Provides that where the violation directly or indirectly results in great bodily harm or death to any person, the person who committed the violation shall be guilty of a Class 4 felony. Provides that a person shall not be in violation of the provisions of the amendatory Act if (A) he or she requests assistance from the police department or other law enforcement agency to either (i) remove any person who refuses to abide by the person's performance of the duties imposed by the amendatory Act or (ii) terminate the gathering because the person has been unable to prevent persons under the age of 21 years from consuming alcohol despite having taken all reasonable steps to do so and (B) this assistance is requested before any other person makes a formal complaint to the police department or other law enforcement agency about the gathering. Makes other changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that where the residence has an owner and a tenant or lessee, there is a rebuttable presumption that the residence is occupied or controlled only by the tenant or lessee.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 4
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Provides that a parent or guardian who knowingly permits his or her residence, or any other private property under his or her control, (instead of knowingly permit his or her residence) to be used by an invitee, under the age of 21, of the parent's child or the guardian's ward in a manner that constitutes a violation of the Act's prohibited sales and possession provisions is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Provides that a parent or guardian is deemed to have knowingly permitted his or her residence, or any other private property under his or her control, to be used in violation of the Act if he or she knowingly authorizes or permits (instead of knowingly authorizes, enables, or permits) consumption of alcohol by underage invitees. In provisions concerning the use of a residence by an underage invitee, modifies some of the elements of the offense by (i) providing that any person, including a tenant or lessee, who knowingly authorizes or permits (instead of permits) a residence (instead of a gathering at a residence) which he or she occupies to be used by an invitee under 21 years of age for possession or use of an alcoholic beverage violates the Act, if other specified conditions are met; and (ii) by striking the requirement that the person occupying the residence know that the underage person who possesses or consumes alcohol left the residence intoxicated. Provides that a person shall not be in violation of the provisions of this Act concerning prohibited underage alcohol consumption at a residence if (A) he or she requests assistance from the police department or other law enforcement agency to either (i) remove any person who refuses to abide by the person's performance of his or her legal duties under this Act or (ii) terminate the activity because the person has been unable to prevent a person under the age of 21 years from consuming alcohol despite having taken all reasonable steps to do so and (B) this assistance is requested before any other person makes a formal complaint to the police department or other law enforcement agency about the activity.
