Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Cigarette Tax Act and the Tobacco Products Tax Act of 1995. Provides that a person who is both a licensed distributor and a licensed retailer shall be issued a single license number by the Department of Revenue. Provides that records may be kept electronically and may be kept at an out-of-state location so long as those records are made available upon reasonable notice for the purpose of investigation and control by the Department of Revenue. Amends the Prevention of Tobacco Use by Minors and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act. In provisions that provide for increased penalties for retailers that do not have training programs, provides that those training programs may be conducted electronically. Provides that, if a retailer has a training program in place prior to the effective date of the amendatory Act, has a training program approved by another state, or follows the guidelines set forth by the federal Food and Drug Administration, then that training program shall be deemed to meet the minimum standards in this State. Effective January 1, 2016.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
35 ILCS 130/6from Ch. 120, par. 453.6
35 ILCS 130/11from Ch. 120, par. 453.11
35 ILCS 143/10-35

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Cigarette Tax Act, the Tobacco Products Tax Act of 1995, and the Prevention of Tobacco Use by Minors and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act. In provisions concerning training programs conducted by retailers to facilitate compliance with minimum-age tobacco laws, provides that the training may be conducted electronically. Provides that each employee who completes the training program shall sign a form attesting that the employee has received and completed tobacco training. Removes a requirement that the training program must explain the penalties that a clerk and retailer are subject to for violations of the Prevention of Tobacco Use by Minors and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act. Provides that sales invoices issued by licensed distributors to retailers are not required to contain the distributor's Tobacco Products License number if the distributor has received a waiver from the Department of Revenue. Contains provisions concerning rulemaking.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces certain references to "retailer" with the term "licensed retailer". In the Tobacco Products Tax Act of 1995, replaces certain references to "cigarettes" with "little cigars or other tobacco tax products". Makes changes concerning the Department of Revenue's rulemaking authority with respect to out-of-State records.
