Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (730 ILCS 5/5-9-1.9)
    Sec. 5-9-1.9. DUI analysis fee.
    (a) "Crime laboratory" means a not-for-profit laboratory substantially funded by a single unit or combination of units of local government or the State of Illinois that regularly employs at least one person engaged in the DUI analysis of blood, other bodily substance, and urine for criminal justice agencies in criminal matters and provides testimony with respect to such examinations.
    "DUI analysis" means an analysis of blood, other bodily substance, or urine for purposes of determining whether a violation of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code has occurred.
    (b) When a person has been adjudged guilty of an offense in violation of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, in addition to any other disposition, penalty, or fine imposed, a crime laboratory DUI analysis fee of $150 for each offense for which the person was convicted shall be levied by the court for each case in which a laboratory analysis occurred. Upon verified petition of the person, the court may suspend payment of all or part of the fee if it finds that the person does not have the ability to pay the fee.
    (c) In addition to any other disposition made under the provisions of the Juvenile Court Act of 1987, any minor adjudicated delinquent for an offense which if committed by an adult would constitute a violation of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code shall be assessed a crime laboratory DUI analysis fee of $150 for each adjudication. Upon verified petition of the minor, the court may suspend payment of all or part of the fee if it finds that the minor does not have the ability to pay the fee. The parent, guardian, or legal custodian of the minor may pay some or all of the fee on the minor's behalf.
    (d) All crime laboratory DUI analysis fees provided for by this Section shall be collected by the clerk of the court and forwarded to the appropriate crime laboratory DUI fund as provided in subsection (f).
    (e) Crime laboratory funds shall be established as follows:
        (1) A unit of local government that maintains a crime
    
laboratory may establish a crime laboratory DUI fund within the office of the county or municipal treasurer.
        (2) Any combination of units of local government that
    
maintains a crime laboratory may establish a crime laboratory DUI fund within the office of the treasurer of the county where the crime laboratory is situated.
        (3) The State Police DUI Fund is created as a special
    
fund in the State Treasury.
    (f) The analysis fee provided for in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section shall be forwarded to the office of the treasurer of the unit of local government that performed the analysis if that unit of local government has established a crime laboratory DUI fund, or to the State Treasurer for deposit into the State Police DUI Fund if the analysis was performed by a laboratory operated by the Department of State Police. If the analysis was performed by a crime laboratory funded by a combination of units of local government, the analysis fee shall be forwarded to the treasurer of the county where the crime laboratory is situated if a crime laboratory DUI fund has been established in that county. If the unit of local government or combination of units of local government has not established a crime laboratory DUI fund, then the analysis fee shall be forwarded to the State Treasurer for deposit into the State Police DUI Fund. The clerk of the circuit court may retain the amount of $10 from each collected analysis fee to offset administrative costs incurred in carrying out the clerk's responsibilities under this Section.
    (g) Fees deposited into a crime laboratory DUI fund created under paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection (e) of this Section shall be in addition to any allocations made pursuant to existing law and shall be designated for the exclusive use of the crime laboratory. These uses may include, but are not limited to, the following:
        (1) Costs incurred in providing analysis for DUI
    
investigations conducted within this State.
        (2) Purchase and maintenance of equipment for use in
    
performing analyses.
        (3) Continuing education, training, and professional
    
development of forensic scientists regularly employed by these laboratories.
    (h) Fees deposited in the State Police DUI Fund created under paragraph (3) of subsection (e) of this Section shall be used by State crime laboratories as designated by the Director of State Police. These funds shall be in addition to any allocations made according to existing law and shall be designated for the exclusive use of State crime laboratories. These uses may include those enumerated in subsection (g) of this Section.
