    AN ACT concerning alternative treatment for serious
diseases causing chronic pain and debilitating conditions.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the
Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act.
 
    Section 5. Findings.
    (a) The recorded use of cannabis as a medicine goes back
nearly 5,000 years. Modern medical research has confirmed the
beneficial uses of cannabis in treating or alleviating the
pain, nausea, and other symptoms associated with a variety of
debilitating medical conditions, including cancer, multiple
sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS, as found by the National Academy of
Sciences' Institute of Medicine in March 1999.
    (b) Studies published since the 1999 Institute of Medicine
report continue to show the therapeutic value of cannabis in
treating a wide array of debilitating medical conditions. These
include relief of the neuropathic pain caused by multiple
sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, and other illnesses that often fail to
respond to conventional treatments and relief of nausea,
vomiting, and other side effects of drugs used to treat
HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, increasing the chances of patients
continuing on life-saving treatment regimens.
    (c) Cannabis has many currently accepted medical uses in
the United States, having been recommended by thousands of
licensed physicians to at least 600,000 patients in states with
medical cannabis laws. The medical utility of cannabis is
recognized by a wide range of medical and public health
organizations, including the American Academy of HIV Medicine,
the American College of Physicians, the American Nurses
Association, the American Public Health Association, the
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and many others.
    (d) Data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform
Crime Reports and the Compendium of Federal Justice Statistics
show that approximately 99 out of every 100 cannabis arrests in
the U.S. are made under state law, rather than under federal
law. Consequently, changing State law will have the practical
effect of protecting from arrest the vast majority of seriously
ill patients who have a medical need to use cannabis.
    (e) Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut,
Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana,
Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont,
Washington, and Washington, D.C. have removed state-level
criminal penalties from the medical use and cultivation of
cannabis. Illinois joins in this effort for the health and
welfare of its citizens.
    (f) States are not required to enforce federal law or
prosecute people for engaging in activities prohibited by
federal law. Therefore, compliance with this Act does not put
the State of Illinois in violation of federal law.
    (g) State law should make a distinction between the medical
and non-medical uses of cannabis. Hence, the purpose of this
Act is to protect patients with debilitating medical
conditions, as well as their physicians and providers, from
arrest and prosecution, criminal and other penalties, and
property forfeiture if the patients engage in the medical use
of cannabis.

the medical use of cannabis in accordance with this Act, if the
registered qualifying patient possesses an amount of cannabis
that does not exceed an adequate supply as defined in
subsection (a) of Section 10 of this Act of usable cannabis

professional when he or she is engaged in the practice of the
profession for which he or she is licensed.
    (b) A registered designated caregiver is not subject to
arrest, prosecution, or denial of any right or privilege,
including but not limited to civil penalty or disciplinary

condition or symptoms associated with the debilitating medical
condition in compliance with this Act.
    (e) A physician is not subject to arrest, prosecution, or
penalty in any manner, or denied any right or privilege,
including but not limited to civil penalty or disciplinary
action by the Medical Disciplinary Board or by any other

the basis for the action is unrelated to the cannabis that is
possessed, manufactured, transferred, or used under this Act.

identification card or registration certificate does not
constitute probable cause or reasonable suspicion, nor shall it
be used as the sole basis to support the search of the person,
property, or home of the person possessing or applying for the
registry identification card. The possession of, or
application for, a registry identification card does not
preclude the existence of probable cause if probable cause
exists on other grounds.
    (m) Nothing in this Act shall preclude local or State law

this Act or rules adopted under this Act is a violation of the
Medical Practice Act of 1987.
 
    Section 40. Discrimination prohibited.
    (a)(1) No school, employer, or landlord may refuse to
enroll or lease to, or otherwise penalize, a person solely for
his or her status as a registered qualifying patient or a
registered designated caregiver, unless failing to do so would
put the school, employer, or landlord in violation of federal
law or unless failing to do so would cause it to lose a
monetary or licensing-related benefit under federal law or
rules. This does not prevent a landlord from prohibiting the
smoking of cannabis on the premises.
    (2) For the purposes of medical care, including organ
transplants, a registered qualifying patient's authorized use
of cannabis in accordance with this Act is considered the
equivalent of the authorized use of any other medication used
at the direction of a physician, and may not constitute the use
of an illicit substance or otherwise disqualify a qualifying
patient from needed medical care.
    (b) A person otherwise entitled to custody of or visitation
or parenting time with a minor may not be denied that right,
and there is no presumption of neglect or child endangerment,
for conduct allowed under this Act, unless the person's actions
in relation to cannabis were such that they created an
unreasonable danger to the safety of the minor as established
by clear and convincing evidence.
    (c) No school, landlord, or employer may be penalized or
denied any benefit under State law for enrolling, leasing to,
or employing a cardholder.
    (d) Nothing in this Act may be construed to require a
government medical assistance program or private health
insurer to reimburse a person for costs associated with the
medical use of cannabis.
    (e) Nothing in this Act may be construed to require any
person or establishment in lawful possession of property to
allow a guest, client, customer, or visitor who is a registered
qualifying patient to use cannabis on or in that property.
 
    Section 45. Addition of debilitating medical conditions.
Any citizen may petition the Department of Public Health to add
debilitating conditions or treatments to the list of
debilitating medical conditions listed in subsection (h) of
Section 10. The Department of Public Health shall consider
petitions in the manner required by Department rule, including
public notice and hearing. The Department shall approve or deny
a petition within 180 days of its submission, and, upon
approval, shall proceed to add that condition by rule in
accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act. The approval
or denial of any petition is a final decision of the
Department, subject to judicial review. Jurisdiction and venue
are vested in the Circuit Court.
 
    Section 50. Employment; employer liability.
    (a) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit an employer from
adopting reasonable regulations concerning the consumption,
storage, or timekeeping requirements for qualifying patients
related to the use of medical cannabis.
    (b) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit an employer from
enforcing a policy concerning drug testing, zero-tolerance, or
a drug free workplace provided the policy is applied in a
nondiscriminatory manner.
    (c) Nothing in this Act shall limit an employer from
disciplining a registered qualifying patient for violating a
workplace drug policy.
    (d) Nothing in this Act shall limit an employer's ability
to discipline an employee for failing a drug test if failing to
do so would put the employer in violation of federal law or
cause it to lose a federal contract or funding.
    (e) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to create a
defense for a third party who fails a drug test.
    (f) An employer may consider a registered qualifying
patient to be impaired when he or she manifests specific,
articulable symptoms while working that decrease or lessen his
or her performance of the duties or tasks of the employee's job
position, including symptoms of the employee's speech,
physical dexterity, agility, coordination, demeanor,
irrational or unusual behavior, negligence or carelessness in
operating equipment or machinery, disregard for the safety of
the employee or others, or involvement in an accident that
results in serious damage to equipment or property, disruption
of a production or manufacturing process, or carelessness that
results in any injury to the employee or others. If an employer
elects to discipline a qualifying patient under this
subsection, it must afford the employee a reasonable
opportunity to contest the basis of the determination.
    (g) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to create or
imply a cause of action for any person against an employer for:
(1) actions based on the employer's good faith belief that a
registered qualifying patient used or possessed cannabis while
on the employer's premises or during the hours of employment;
(2) actions based on the employer's good faith belief that a
registered qualifying patient was impaired while working on the
employer's premises during the hours of employment; (3) injury
or loss to a third party if the employer neither knew nor had
reason to know that the employee was impaired.
    (h) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to interfere
with any federal restrictions on employment including but not
limited to the United States Department of Transportation
regulation 49 CFR 40.151(e).

designated caregivers.
    (a) The Department of Public Health shall issue registry

    debilitating medical condition, and to substantiate the
    patient's diagnosis;
        (3) the application or renewal fee as set by rule;
        (4) the name, address, date of birth, and social

    (b) The Department of Public Health may not issue a
registry identification card to a qualifying patient who is

    (c) A veteran who has received treatment at a VA hospital
is deemed to have a bona fide physician-patient relationship
with a VA physician if the patient has been seen for his or her
debilitating medical condition at the VA Hospital in accordance
with VA Hospital protocols. All reasonable inferences
regarding the existence of a bona fide physician-patient
relationship shall be drawn in favor of an applicant who is a
veteran and has undergone treatment at a VA hospital.
    (d) Upon the approval of the registration and issuance of a
registry card under this Section, the Department of Public
Health shall forward the designated caregiver or registered
qualified patient's driver's registration number to the
Secretary of State and certify that the individual is permitted
to engage in the medical use of cannabis. For the purposes of
law enforcement, the Secretary of State shall make a notation
on the person's driving record stating the person is a
registered qualifying patient who is entitled to the lawful
medical use of cannabis. If the person no longer holds a valid
registry card, the Department shall notify the Secretary of
State and the Secretary of State shall remove the notation from
the person's driving record. The Department and the Secretary

shared electronically.
 
    Section 65. Denial of registry identification cards.

        (2) the applicant did not provide the information
    required;
        (3) the prospective patient's application was denied;
        (4) the designated caregiver previously had a registry
    identification card revoked; or
        (5) the applicant or the designated caregiver provided
    false or falsified information.
    (d) The Department of Public Health through the Illinois

by the Department of Public Health. Each person applying as a
qualifying patient or a designated caregiver shall submit a
full set of fingerprints to the Department of Public Health for
the purpose of obtaining a state and federal criminal records
check. The Department of Public Health may exchange this data
with the Department of State Police or the Federal Bureau of
Investigation without disclosing that the records check is
related to this Act. The Department of Public Health shall
destroy each set of fingerprints after the criminal records
check is completed. The Department of Public Health may waive
the submission of a qualifying patient's complete fingerprints
based on (1) the severity of the patient's illness and (2) the

fingerprints, provided that a complete criminal background
check is conducted by the Department of State Police prior to
the issuance of a registry identification card.
    (e) The Department of Public Health shall notify the
qualifying patient who has designated someone to serve as his
or her designated caregiver if a registry identification card

described in Department of Public Health rules. The Department
of Public Health shall send a notification to a registered
qualifying patient or registered designated caregiver 90 days
prior to the expiration of the registered qualifying patient's
or registered designated caregiver's identification card. If
the Department of Public Health fails to grant or deny a
renewal application received in accordance with this Section,

cardholder a new registry identification card with a new random
alphanumeric identification number within 15 business days of
receiving the updated information and a fee as specified in
Department of Public Health rules. If the person notifying the
Department of Public Health is a registered qualifying patient,

physician notifies the Department in writing that either the
registered qualifying patient has ceased to suffer from a
debilitating medical condition or that the physician no longer
believes the patient would receive therapeutic or palliative
benefit from the medical use of cannabis, the card shall become
null and void. However, the registered qualifying patient shall
have 15 days to destroy his or her remaining medical cannabis
and related paraphernalia.

        (1) No cannabis infused products requiring
    refrigeration or hot-holding shall be manufactured at a
    cultivation center for sale or distribution at a dispensing
    organization due to the potential for food-borne illness.
        (2) Baked products infused with medical cannabis (such
    as brownies, bars, cookies, cakes), tinctures, and other

        produced in a medical cannabis cultivation center not
        subject to public health inspection that may also
        process common food allergens.";
            (E) allergen labeling as specified in the Federal
        Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act, Federal Fair Packaging

used for the production, preparation, manufacture for sale,
storage, sale, distribution or transportation of medical
cannabis edible products, to inspect the premises and all
utensils, fixtures, furniture, and machinery used for the
preparation of these products.
    (c) If a local health organization has a reasonable belief
that a cultivation center's cannabis-infused product poses a
public health hazard, it may refer the cultivation center to
the Department of Public Health. If the Department of Public
Health finds that a cannabis-infused product poses a health
hazard, it may without administrative procedure to bond, bring
an action for immediate injunctive relief to require that
action be taken as the court may deem necessary to meet the
hazard of the cultivation center.

provisions of Section 201.5.
    (c) Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax.
Beginning on July 1, 1979 and thereafter, in addition to such
income tax, there is also hereby imposed the Personal Property
Tax Replacement Income Tax measured by net income on every
corporation (including Subchapter S corporations), partnership
and trust, for each taxable year ending after June 30, 1979.
Such taxes are imposed on the privilege of earning or receiving
income in or as a resident of this State. The Personal Property
Tax Replacement Income Tax shall be in addition to the income
tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section and in
addition to all other occupation or privilege taxes imposed by
this State or by any municipal corporation or political
subdivision thereof.
    (d) Additional Personal Property Tax Replacement Income
Tax Rates. The personal property tax replacement income tax
imposed by this subsection and subsection (c) of this Section
in the case of a corporation, other than a Subchapter S
corporation and except as adjusted by subsection (d-1), shall
be an additional amount equal to 2.85% of such taxpayer's net
income for the taxable year, except that beginning on January
1, 1981, and thereafter, the rate of 2.85% specified in this
subsection shall be reduced to 2.5%, and in the case of a
partnership, trust or a Subchapter S corporation shall be an
additional amount equal to 1.5% of such taxpayer's net income
for the taxable year.
    (d-1) Rate reduction for certain foreign insurers. In the
case of a foreign insurer, as defined by Section 35A-5 of the
Illinois Insurance Code, whose state or country of domicile
imposes on insurers domiciled in Illinois a retaliatory tax
(excluding any insurer whose premiums from reinsurance assumed
are 50% or more of its total insurance premiums as determined
under paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 304, except
that for purposes of this determination premiums from
reinsurance do not include premiums from inter-affiliate
reinsurance arrangements), beginning with taxable years ending
on or after December 31, 1999, the sum of the rates of tax
imposed by subsections (b) and (d) shall be reduced (but not
increased) to the rate at which the total amount of tax imposed
under this Act, net of all credits allowed under this Act,
shall equal (i) the total amount of tax that would be imposed
on the foreign insurer's net income allocable to Illinois for
the taxable year by such foreign insurer's state or country of
domicile if that net income were subject to all income taxes
and taxes measured by net income imposed by such foreign
insurer's state or country of domicile, net of all credits
allowed or (ii) a rate of zero if no such tax is imposed on such
income by the foreign insurer's state of domicile. For the
purposes of this subsection (d-1), an inter-affiliate includes
a mutual insurer under common management.
        (1) For the purposes of subsection (d-1), in no event
    shall the sum of the rates of tax imposed by subsections
    (b) and (d) be reduced below the rate at which the sum of:
            (A) the total amount of tax imposed on such foreign
        insurer under this Act for a taxable year, net of all
        credits allowed under this Act, plus
            (B) the privilege tax imposed by Section 409 of the
        Illinois Insurance Code, the fire insurance company
        tax imposed by Section 12 of the Fire Investigation
        Act, and the fire department taxes imposed under
        Section 11-10-1 of the Illinois Municipal Code,
    equals 1.25% for taxable years ending prior to December 31,
    2003, or 1.75% for taxable years ending on or after
    December 31, 2003, of the net taxable premiums written for
    the taxable year, as described by subsection (1) of Section
    409 of the Illinois Insurance Code. This paragraph will in
    no event increase the rates imposed under subsections (b)
    and (d).
        (2) Any reduction in the rates of tax imposed by this
    subsection shall be applied first against the rates imposed
    by subsection (b) and only after the tax imposed by
    subsection (a) net of all credits allowed under this
    Section other than the credit allowed under subsection (i)
    has been reduced to zero, against the rates imposed by
    subsection (d).
    This subsection (d-1) is exempt from the provisions of
Section 250.
    (e) Investment credit. A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit
against the Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax for
investment in qualified property.
        (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit equal to .5%
    of the basis of qualified property placed in service during
    the taxable year, provided such property is placed in
    service on or after July 1, 1984. There shall be allowed an
    additional credit equal to .5% of the basis of qualified
    property placed in service during the taxable year,
    provided such property is placed in service on or after
    July 1, 1986, and the taxpayer's base employment within
    Illinois has increased by 1% or more over the preceding
    year as determined by the taxpayer's employment records
    filed with the Illinois Department of Employment Security.
    Taxpayers who are new to Illinois shall be deemed to have
    met the 1% growth in base employment for the first year in
    which they file employment records with the Illinois
    Department of Employment Security. The provisions added to
    this Section by Public Act 85-1200 (and restored by Public
    Act 87-895) shall be construed as declaratory of existing
    law and not as a new enactment. If, in any year, the
    increase in base employment within Illinois over the
    preceding year is less than 1%, the additional credit shall
    be limited to that percentage times a fraction, the
    numerator of which is .5% and the denominator of which is
    1%, but shall not exceed .5%. The investment credit shall
    not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
    taxpayer's liability in any tax year below zero, nor may
    any credit for qualified property be allowed for any year
    other than the year in which the property was placed in
    service in Illinois. For tax years ending on or after
    December 31, 1987, and on or before December 31, 1988, the
    credit shall be allowed for the tax year in which the
    property is placed in service, or, if the amount of the
    credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether it
    exceeds the original liability or the liability as later
    amended, such excess may be carried forward and applied to
    the tax liability of the 5 taxable years following the
    excess credit years if the taxpayer (i) makes investments
    which cause the creation of a minimum of 2,000 full-time
    equivalent jobs in Illinois, (ii) is located in an
    enterprise zone established pursuant to the Illinois
    Enterprise Zone Act and (iii) is certified by the
    Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
    Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) as
    complying with the requirements specified in clause (i) and
    (ii) by July 1, 1986. The Department of Commerce and
    Community Affairs (now Department of Commerce and Economic
    Opportunity) shall notify the Department of Revenue of all
    such certifications immediately. For tax years ending
    after December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed for
    the tax year in which the property is placed in service,
    or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability
    for that year, whether it exceeds the original liability or
    the liability as later amended, such excess may be carried
    forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable
    years following the excess credit years. The credit shall
    be applied to the earliest year for which there is a
    liability. If there is credit from more than one tax year
    that is available to offset a liability, earlier credit
    shall be applied first.
        (2) The term "qualified property" means property
    which:
            (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
        buildings and structural components of buildings and
        signs that are real property, but not including land or
        improvements to real property that are not a structural
        component of a building such as landscaping, sewer
        lines, local access roads, fencing, parking lots, and
        other appurtenances;
            (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
        Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
        as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
        eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
        (e);
            (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
        179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
            (D) is used in Illinois by a taxpayer who is
        primarily engaged in manufacturing, or in mining coal
        or fluorite, or in retailing, or was placed in service
        on or after July 1, 2006 in a River Edge Redevelopment
        Zone established pursuant to the River Edge
        Redevelopment Zone Act; and
            (E) has not previously been used in Illinois in
        such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
        the credit provided by this subsection (e) or
        subsection (f).
        (3) For purposes of this subsection (e),
    "manufacturing" means the material staging and production
    of tangible personal property by procedures commonly
    regarded as manufacturing, processing, fabrication, or
    assembling which changes some existing material into new
    shapes, new qualities, or new combinations. For purposes of
    this subsection (e) the term "mining" shall have the same
    meaning as the term "mining" in Section 613(c) of the
    Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of this subsection (e),
    the term "retailing" means the sale of tangible personal
    property for use or consumption and not for resale, or
    services rendered in conjunction with the sale of tangible
    personal property for use or consumption and not for
    resale. For purposes of this subsection (e), "tangible
    personal property" has the same meaning as when that term
    is used in the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, and, for
    taxable years ending after December 31, 2008, does not
    include the generation, transmission, or distribution of
    electricity.
        (4) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
    used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
    income tax purposes.
        (5) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
    depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
    in service in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount of such
    increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
    date of such increase in basis.
        (6) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
    meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
        (7) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
    be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
    48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
    any qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
    months after being placed in service, the Personal Property
    Tax Replacement Income Tax for such taxable year shall be
    increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
    recomputing the investment credit which would have been
    allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
    originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
    computation and, (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
    from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the
    purposes of this paragraph (7), a reduction of the basis of
    qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the
    purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
    property to the extent of such reduction.
        (8) Unless the investment credit is extended by law,
    the basis of qualified property shall not include costs
    incurred after December 31, 2018, except for costs incurred
    pursuant to a binding contract entered into on or before
    December 31, 2018.
        (9) Each taxable year ending before December 31, 2000,
    a partnership may elect to pass through to its partners the
    credits to which the partnership is entitled under this
    subsection (e) for the taxable year. A partner may use the
    credit allocated to him or her under this paragraph only
    against the tax imposed in subsections (c) and (d) of this
    Section. If the partnership makes that election, those
    credits shall be allocated among the partners in the
    partnership in accordance with the rules set forth in
    Section 704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, and the rules
    promulgated under that Section, and the allocated amount of
    the credits shall be allowed to the partners for that
    taxable year. The partnership shall make this election on
    its Personal Property Tax Replacement Income Tax return for
    that taxable year. The election to pass through the credits
    shall be irrevocable.
        For taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2000,
    a partner that qualifies its partnership for a subtraction
    under subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of subsection (d)
    of Section 203 or a shareholder that qualifies a Subchapter
    S corporation for a subtraction under subparagraph (S) of
    paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 203 shall be
    allowed a credit under this subsection (e) equal to its
    share of the credit earned under this subsection (e) during
    the taxable year by the partnership or Subchapter S
    corporation, determined in accordance with the
    determination of income and distributive share of income
    under Sections 702 and 704 and Subchapter S of the Internal
    Revenue Code. This paragraph is exempt from the provisions
    of Section 250.
    (f) Investment credit; Enterprise Zone; River Edge
Redevelopment Zone.
        (1) A taxpayer shall be allowed a credit against the
    tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for
    investment in qualified property which is placed in service
    in an Enterprise Zone created pursuant to the Illinois
    Enterprise Zone Act or, for property placed in service on
    or after July 1, 2006, a River Edge Redevelopment Zone
    established pursuant to the River Edge Redevelopment Zone
    Act. For partners, shareholders of Subchapter S
    corporations, and owners of limited liability companies,
    if the liability company is treated as a partnership for
    purposes of federal and State income taxation, there shall
    be allowed a credit under this subsection (f) to be
    determined in accordance with the determination of income
    and distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704
    and Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. The credit
    shall be .5% of the basis for such property. The credit
    shall be available only in the taxable year in which the
    property is placed in service in the Enterprise Zone or
    River Edge Redevelopment Zone and shall not be allowed to
    the extent that it would reduce a taxpayer's liability for
    the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section
    to below zero. For tax years ending on or after December
    31, 1985, the credit shall be allowed for the tax year in
    which the property is placed in service, or, if the amount
    of the credit exceeds the tax liability for that year,
    whether it exceeds the original liability or the liability
    as later amended, such excess may be carried forward and
    applied to the tax liability of the 5 taxable years
    following the excess credit year. The credit shall be
    applied to the earliest year for which there is a
    liability. If there is credit from more than one tax year
    that is available to offset a liability, the credit
    accruing first in time shall be applied first.
        (2) The term qualified property means property which:
            (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
        buildings and structural components of buildings;
            (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
        Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
        as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
        eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
        (f);
            (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
        179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code;
            (D) is used in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
        Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer; and
            (E) has not been previously used in Illinois in
        such a manner and by such a person as would qualify for
        the credit provided by this subsection (f) or
        subsection (e).
        (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
    used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
    income tax purposes.
        (4) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
    depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
    in service in the Enterprise Zone or River Edge
    Redevelopment Zone by the taxpayer, the amount of such
    increase shall be deemed property placed in service on the
    date of such increase in basis.
        (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
    meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
        (6) If during any taxable year, any property ceases to
    be qualified property in the hands of the taxpayer within
    48 months after being placed in service, or the situs of
    any qualified property is moved outside the Enterprise Zone
    or River Edge Redevelopment Zone within 48 months after
    being placed in service, the tax imposed under subsections
    (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable year shall be
    increased. Such increase shall be determined by (i)
    recomputing the investment credit which would have been
    allowed for the year in which credit for such property was
    originally allowed by eliminating such property from such
    computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed credit
    from the amount of credit previously allowed. For the
    purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the basis of
    qualified property resulting from a redetermination of the
    purchase price shall be deemed a disposition of qualified
    property to the extent of such reduction.
        (7) There shall be allowed an additional credit equal
    to 0.5% of the basis of qualified property placed in
    service during the taxable year in a River Edge
    Redevelopment Zone, provided such property is placed in
    service on or after July 1, 2006, and the taxpayer's base
    employment within Illinois has increased by 1% or more over
    the preceding year as determined by the taxpayer's
    employment records filed with the Illinois Department of
    Employment Security. Taxpayers who are new to Illinois
    shall be deemed to have met the 1% growth in base
    employment for the first year in which they file employment
    records with the Illinois Department of Employment
    Security. If, in any year, the increase in base employment
    within Illinois over the preceding year is less than 1%,
    the additional credit shall be limited to that percentage
    times a fraction, the numerator of which is 0.5% and the
    denominator of which is 1%, but shall not exceed 0.5%.
    (g) Jobs Tax Credit; River Edge Redevelopment Zone and
Foreign Trade Zone or Sub-Zone.
        (1) A taxpayer conducting a trade or business, for
    taxable years ending on or after December 31, 2006, in a
    River Edge Redevelopment Zone or conducting a trade or
    business in a federally designated Foreign Trade Zone or
    Sub-Zone shall be allowed a credit against the tax imposed
    by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section in the amount of
    $500 per eligible employee hired to work in the zone during
    the taxable year.
        (2) To qualify for the credit:
            (A) the taxpayer must hire 5 or more eligible
        employees to work in a River Edge Redevelopment Zone or
        federally designated Foreign Trade Zone or Sub-Zone
        during the taxable year;
            (B) the taxpayer's total employment within the
        River Edge Redevelopment Zone or federally designated
        Foreign Trade Zone or Sub-Zone must increase by 5 or
        more full-time employees beyond the total employed in
        that zone at the end of the previous tax year for which
        a jobs tax credit under this Section was taken, or
        beyond the total employed by the taxpayer as of
        December 31, 1985, whichever is later; and
            (C) the eligible employees must be employed 180
        consecutive days in order to be deemed hired for
        purposes of this subsection.
        (3) An "eligible employee" means an employee who is:
            (A) Certified by the Department of Commerce and
        Economic Opportunity as "eligible for services"
        pursuant to regulations promulgated in accordance with
        Title II of the Job Training Partnership Act, Training
        Services for the Disadvantaged or Title III of the Job
        Training Partnership Act, Employment and Training
        Assistance for Dislocated Workers Program.
            (B) Hired after the River Edge Redevelopment Zone
        or federally designated Foreign Trade Zone or Sub-Zone
        was designated or the trade or business was located in
        that zone, whichever is later.
            (C) Employed in the River Edge Redevelopment Zone
        or Foreign Trade Zone or Sub-Zone. An employee is
        employed in a federally designated Foreign Trade Zone
        or Sub-Zone if his services are rendered there or it is
        the base of operations for the services performed.
            (D) A full-time employee working 30 or more hours
        per week.
        (4) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1985
    and prior to December 31, 1988, the credit shall be allowed
    for the tax year in which the eligible employees are hired.
    For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1988, the
    credit shall be allowed for the tax year immediately
    following the tax year in which the eligible employees are
    hired. If the amount of the credit exceeds the tax
    liability for that year, whether it exceeds the original
    liability or the liability as later amended, such excess
    may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of
    the 5 taxable years following the excess credit year. The
    credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
    there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
    tax year that is available to offset a liability, earlier
    credit shall be applied first.
        (5) The Department of Revenue shall promulgate such
    rules and regulations as may be deemed necessary to carry
    out the purposes of this subsection (g).
        (6) The credit shall be available for eligible
    employees hired on or after January 1, 1986.
    (h) Investment credit; High Impact Business.
        (1) Subject to subsections (b) and (b-5) of Section 5.5
    of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act, a taxpayer shall be
    allowed a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a)
    and (b) of this Section for investment in qualified
    property which is placed in service by a Department of
    Commerce and Economic Opportunity designated High Impact
    Business. The credit shall be .5% of the basis for such
    property. The credit shall not be available (i) until the
    minimum investments in qualified property set forth in
    subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois
    Enterprise Zone Act have been satisfied or (ii) until the
    time authorized in subsection (b-5) of the Illinois
    Enterprise Zone Act for entities designated as High Impact
    Businesses under subdivisions (a)(3)(B), (a)(3)(C), and
    (a)(3)(D) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone
    Act, and shall not be allowed to the extent that it would
    reduce a taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by
    subsections (a) and (b) of this Section to below zero. The
    credit applicable to such investments shall be taken in the
    taxable year in which such investments have been completed.
    The credit for additional investments beyond the minimum
    investment by a designated high impact business authorized
    under subdivision (a)(3)(A) of Section 5.5 of the Illinois
    Enterprise Zone Act shall be available only in the taxable
    year in which the property is placed in service and shall
    not be allowed to the extent that it would reduce a
    taxpayer's liability for the tax imposed by subsections (a)
    and (b) of this Section to below zero. For tax years ending
    on or after December 31, 1987, the credit shall be allowed
    for the tax year in which the property is placed in
    service, or, if the amount of the credit exceeds the tax
    liability for that year, whether it exceeds the original
    liability or the liability as later amended, such excess
    may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of
    the 5 taxable years following the excess credit year. The
    credit shall be applied to the earliest year for which
    there is a liability. If there is credit from more than one
    tax year that is available to offset a liability, the
    credit accruing first in time shall be applied first.
        Changes made in this subdivision (h)(1) by Public Act
    88-670 restore changes made by Public Act 85-1182 and
    reflect existing law.
        (2) The term qualified property means property which:
            (A) is tangible, whether new or used, including
        buildings and structural components of buildings;
            (B) is depreciable pursuant to Section 167 of the
        Internal Revenue Code, except that "3-year property"
        as defined in Section 168(c)(2)(A) of that Code is not
        eligible for the credit provided by this subsection
        (h);
            (C) is acquired by purchase as defined in Section
        179(d) of the Internal Revenue Code; and
            (D) is not eligible for the Enterprise Zone
        Investment Credit provided by subsection (f) of this
        Section.
        (3) The basis of qualified property shall be the basis
    used to compute the depreciation deduction for federal
    income tax purposes.
        (4) If the basis of the property for federal income tax
    depreciation purposes is increased after it has been placed
    in service in a federally designated Foreign Trade Zone or
    Sub-Zone located in Illinois by the taxpayer, the amount of
    such increase shall be deemed property placed in service on
    the date of such increase in basis.
        (5) The term "placed in service" shall have the same
    meaning as under Section 46 of the Internal Revenue Code.
        (6) If during any taxable year ending on or before
    December 31, 1996, any property ceases to be qualified
    property in the hands of the taxpayer within 48 months
    after being placed in service, or the situs of any
    qualified property is moved outside Illinois within 48
    months after being placed in service, the tax imposed under
    subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for such taxable
    year shall be increased. Such increase shall be determined
    by (i) recomputing the investment credit which would have
    been allowed for the year in which credit for such property
    was originally allowed by eliminating such property from
    such computation, and (ii) subtracting such recomputed
    credit from the amount of credit previously allowed. For
    the purposes of this paragraph (6), a reduction of the
    basis of qualified property resulting from a
    redetermination of the purchase price shall be deemed a
    disposition of qualified property to the extent of such
    reduction.
        (7) Beginning with tax years ending after December 31,
    1996, if a taxpayer qualifies for the credit under this
    subsection (h) and thereby is granted a tax abatement and
    the taxpayer relocates its entire facility in violation of
    the explicit terms and length of the contract under Section
    18-183 of the Property Tax Code, the tax imposed under
    subsections (a) and (b) of this Section shall be increased
    for the taxable year in which the taxpayer relocated its
    facility by an amount equal to the amount of credit
    received by the taxpayer under this subsection (h).
    (i) Credit for Personal Property Tax Replacement Income
Tax. For tax years ending prior to December 31, 2003, a credit
shall be allowed against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and
(b) of this Section for the tax imposed by subsections (c) and
(d) of this Section. This credit shall be computed by
multiplying the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
Section by a fraction, the numerator of which is base income
allocable to Illinois and the denominator of which is Illinois
base income, and further multiplying the product by the tax
rate imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section.
    Any credit earned on or after December 31, 1986 under this
subsection which is unused in the year the credit is computed
because it exceeds the tax liability imposed by subsections (a)
and (b) for that year (whether it exceeds the original
liability or the liability as later amended) may be carried
forward and applied to the tax liability imposed by subsections
(a) and (b) of the 5 taxable years following the excess credit
year, provided that no credit may be carried forward to any
year ending on or after December 31, 2003. This credit shall be
applied first to the earliest year for which there is a
liability. If there is a credit under this subsection from more
than one tax year that is available to offset a liability the
earliest credit arising under this subsection shall be applied
first.
    If, during any taxable year ending on or after December 31,
1986, the tax imposed by subsections (c) and (d) of this
Section for which a taxpayer has claimed a credit under this
subsection (i) is reduced, the amount of credit for such tax
shall also be reduced. Such reduction shall be determined by
recomputing the credit to take into account the reduced tax
imposed by subsections (c) and (d). If any portion of the
reduced amount of credit has been carried to a different
taxable year, an amended return shall be filed for such taxable
year to reduce the amount of credit claimed.
    (j) Training expense credit. Beginning with tax years
ending on or after December 31, 1986 and prior to December 31,
2003, a taxpayer shall be allowed a credit against the tax
imposed by subsections (a) and (b) under this Section for all
amounts paid or accrued, on behalf of all persons employed by
the taxpayer in Illinois or Illinois residents employed outside
of Illinois by a taxpayer, for educational or vocational
training in semi-technical or technical fields or semi-skilled
or skilled fields, which were deducted from gross income in the
computation of taxable income. The credit against the tax
imposed by subsections (a) and (b) shall be 1.6% of such
training expenses. For partners, shareholders of subchapter S
corporations, and owners of limited liability companies, if the
liability company is treated as a partnership for purposes of
federal and State income taxation, there shall be allowed a
credit under this subsection (j) to be determined in accordance
with the determination of income and distributive share of
income under Sections 702 and 704 and subchapter S of the
Internal Revenue Code.
    Any credit allowed under this subsection which is unused in
the year the credit is earned may be carried forward to each of
the 5 taxable years following the year for which the credit is
first computed until it is used. This credit shall be applied
first to the earliest year for which there is a liability. If
there is a credit under this subsection from more than one tax
year that is available to offset a liability the earliest
credit arising under this subsection shall be applied first. No
carryforward credit may be claimed in any tax year ending on or
after December 31, 2003.
    (k) Research and development credit. For tax years ending
after July 1, 1990 and prior to December 31, 2003, and
beginning again for tax years ending on or after December 31,
2004, and ending prior to January 1, 2016, a taxpayer shall be
allowed a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and
(b) of this Section for increasing research activities in this
State. The credit allowed against the tax imposed by
subsections (a) and (b) shall be equal to 6 1/2% of the
qualifying expenditures for increasing research activities in
this State. For partners, shareholders of subchapter S
corporations, and owners of limited liability companies, if the
liability company is treated as a partnership for purposes of
federal and State income taxation, there shall be allowed a
credit under this subsection to be determined in accordance
with the determination of income and distributive share of
income under Sections 702 and 704 and subchapter S of the
Internal Revenue Code.
    For purposes of this subsection, "qualifying expenditures"
means the qualifying expenditures as defined for the federal
credit for increasing research activities which would be
allowable under Section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code and
which are conducted in this State, "qualifying expenditures for
increasing research activities in this State" means the excess
of qualifying expenditures for the taxable year in which
incurred over qualifying expenditures for the base period,
"qualifying expenditures for the base period" means the average
of the qualifying expenditures for each year in the base
period, and "base period" means the 3 taxable years immediately
preceding the taxable year for which the determination is being
made.
    Any credit in excess of the tax liability for the taxable
year may be carried forward. A taxpayer may elect to have the
unused credit shown on its final completed return carried over
as a credit against the tax liability for the following 5
taxable years or until it has been fully used, whichever occurs
first; provided that no credit earned in a tax year ending
prior to December 31, 2003 may be carried forward to any year
ending on or after December 31, 2003.
    If an unused credit is carried forward to a given year from
2 or more earlier years, that credit arising in the earliest
year will be applied first against the tax liability for the
given year. If a tax liability for the given year still
remains, the credit from the next earliest year will then be
applied, and so on, until all credits have been used or no tax
liability for the given year remains. Any remaining unused
credit or credits then will be carried forward to the next
following year in which a tax liability is incurred, except
that no credit can be carried forward to a year which is more
than 5 years after the year in which the expense for which the
credit is given was incurred.
    No inference shall be drawn from this amendatory Act of the
91st General Assembly in construing this Section for taxable
years beginning before January 1, 1999.
    (l) Environmental Remediation Tax Credit.
        (i) For tax years ending after December 31, 1997 and on
    or before December 31, 2001, a taxpayer shall be allowed a
    credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b)
    of this Section for certain amounts paid for unreimbursed
    eligible remediation costs, as specified in this
    subsection. For purposes of this Section, "unreimbursed
    eligible remediation costs" means costs approved by the
    Illinois Environmental Protection Agency ("Agency") under
    Section 58.14 of the Environmental Protection Act that were
    paid in performing environmental remediation at a site for
    which a No Further Remediation Letter was issued by the
    Agency and recorded under Section 58.10 of the
    Environmental Protection Act. The credit must be claimed
    for the taxable year in which Agency approval of the
    eligible remediation costs is granted. The credit is not
    available to any taxpayer if the taxpayer or any related
    party caused or contributed to, in any material respect, a
    release of regulated substances on, in, or under the site
    that was identified and addressed by the remedial action
    pursuant to the Site Remediation Program of the
    Environmental Protection Act. After the Pollution Control
    Board rules are adopted pursuant to the Illinois
    Administrative Procedure Act for the administration and
    enforcement of Section 58.9 of the Environmental
    Protection Act, determinations as to credit availability
    for purposes of this Section shall be made consistent with
    those rules. For purposes of this Section, "taxpayer"
    includes a person whose tax attributes the taxpayer has
    succeeded to under Section 381 of the Internal Revenue Code
    and "related party" includes the persons disallowed a
    deduction for losses by paragraphs (b), (c), and (f)(1) of
    Section 267 of the Internal Revenue Code by virtue of being
    a related taxpayer, as well as any of its partners. The
    credit allowed against the tax imposed by subsections (a)
    and (b) shall be equal to 25% of the unreimbursed eligible
    remediation costs in excess of $100,000 per site, except
    that the $100,000 threshold shall not apply to any site
    contained in an enterprise zone as determined by the
    Department of Commerce and Community Affairs (now
    Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity). The
    total credit allowed shall not exceed $40,000 per year with
    a maximum total of $150,000 per site. For partners and
    shareholders of subchapter S corporations, there shall be
    allowed a credit under this subsection to be determined in
    accordance with the determination of income and
    distributive share of income under Sections 702 and 704 and
    subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code.
        (ii) A credit allowed under this subsection that is
    unused in the year the credit is earned may be carried
    forward to each of the 5 taxable years following the year
    for which the credit is first earned until it is used. The
    term "unused credit" does not include any amounts of
    unreimbursed eligible remediation costs in excess of the
    maximum credit per site authorized under paragraph (i).
    This credit shall be applied first to the earliest year for
    which there is a liability. If there is a credit under this
    subsection from more than one tax year that is available to
    offset a liability, the earliest credit arising under this
    subsection shall be applied first. A credit allowed under
    this subsection may be sold to a buyer as part of a sale of
    all or part of the remediation site for which the credit
    was granted. The purchaser of a remediation site and the
    tax credit shall succeed to the unused credit and remaining
    carry-forward period of the seller. To perfect the
    transfer, the assignor shall record the transfer in the
    chain of title for the site and provide written notice to
    the Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue of the
    assignor's intent to sell the remediation site and the
    amount of the tax credit to be transferred as a portion of
    the sale. In no event may a credit be transferred to any
    taxpayer if the taxpayer or a related party would not be
    eligible under the provisions of subsection (i).
        (iii) For purposes of this Section, the term "site"
    shall have the same meaning as under Section 58.2 of the
    Environmental Protection Act.
    (m) Education expense credit. Beginning with tax years
ending after December 31, 1999, a taxpayer who is the custodian
of one or more qualifying pupils shall be allowed a credit
against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this
Section for qualified education expenses incurred on behalf of
the qualifying pupils. The credit shall be equal to 25% of
qualified education expenses, but in no event may the total
credit under this subsection claimed by a family that is the
custodian of qualifying pupils exceed $500. In no event shall a
credit under this subsection reduce the taxpayer's liability
under this Act to less than zero. This subsection is exempt
from the provisions of Section 250 of this Act.
    For purposes of this subsection:
    "Qualifying pupils" means individuals who (i) are
residents of the State of Illinois, (ii) are under the age of
21 at the close of the school year for which a credit is
sought, and (iii) during the school year for which a credit is
sought were full-time pupils enrolled in a kindergarten through
twelfth grade education program at any school, as defined in
this subsection.
    "Qualified education expense" means the amount incurred on
behalf of a qualifying pupil in excess of $250 for tuition,
book fees, and lab fees at the school in which the pupil is
enrolled during the regular school year.
    "School" means any public or nonpublic elementary or
secondary school in Illinois that is in compliance with Title
VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and attendance at which
satisfies the requirements of Section 26-1 of the School Code,
except that nothing shall be construed to require a child to
attend any particular public or nonpublic school to qualify for
the credit under this Section.
    "Custodian" means, with respect to qualifying pupils, an
Illinois resident who is a parent, the parents, a legal
guardian, or the legal guardians of the qualifying pupils.
    (n) River Edge Redevelopment Zone site remediation tax
credit.
        (i) For tax years ending on or after December 31, 2006,
    a taxpayer shall be allowed a credit against the tax
    imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of this Section for
    certain amounts paid for unreimbursed eligible remediation
    costs, as specified in this subsection. For purposes of
    this Section, "unreimbursed eligible remediation costs"
    means costs approved by the Illinois Environmental
    Protection Agency ("Agency") under Section 58.14a of the
    Environmental Protection Act that were paid in performing
    environmental remediation at a site within a River Edge
    Redevelopment Zone for which a No Further Remediation
    Letter was issued by the Agency and recorded under Section
    58.10 of the Environmental Protection Act. The credit must
    be claimed for the taxable year in which Agency approval of
    the eligible remediation costs is granted. The credit is
    not available to any taxpayer if the taxpayer or any
    related party caused or contributed to, in any material
    respect, a release of regulated substances on, in, or under
    the site that was identified and addressed by the remedial
    action pursuant to the Site Remediation Program of the
    Environmental Protection Act. Determinations as to credit
    availability for purposes of this Section shall be made
    consistent with rules adopted by the Pollution Control
    Board pursuant to the Illinois Administrative Procedure
    Act for the administration and enforcement of Section 58.9
    of the Environmental Protection Act. For purposes of this
    Section, "taxpayer" includes a person whose tax attributes
    the taxpayer has succeeded to under Section 381 of the
    Internal Revenue Code and "related party" includes the
    persons disallowed a deduction for losses by paragraphs
    (b), (c), and (f)(1) of Section 267 of the Internal Revenue
    Code by virtue of being a related taxpayer, as well as any
    of its partners. The credit allowed against the tax imposed
    by subsections (a) and (b) shall be equal to 25% of the
    unreimbursed eligible remediation costs in excess of
    $100,000 per site.
        (ii) A credit allowed under this subsection that is
    unused in the year the credit is earned may be carried
    forward to each of the 5 taxable years following the year
    for which the credit is first earned until it is used. This
    credit shall be applied first to the earliest year for
    which there is a liability. If there is a credit under this
    subsection from more than one tax year that is available to
    offset a liability, the earliest credit arising under this
    subsection shall be applied first. A credit allowed under
    this subsection may be sold to a buyer as part of a sale of
    all or part of the remediation site for which the credit
    was granted. The purchaser of a remediation site and the
    tax credit shall succeed to the unused credit and remaining
    carry-forward period of the seller. To perfect the
    transfer, the assignor shall record the transfer in the
    chain of title for the site and provide written notice to
    the Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue of the
    assignor's intent to sell the remediation site and the
    amount of the tax credit to be transferred as a portion of
    the sale. In no event may a credit be transferred to any
    taxpayer if the taxpayer or a related party would not be
    eligible under the provisions of subsection (i).
        (iii) For purposes of this Section, the term "site"
    shall have the same meaning as under Section 58.2 of the
    Environmental Protection Act.
    (o) For each of taxable years during the Compassionate Use
of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program, a surcharge is imposed on
all taxpayers on income arising from the sale or exchange of
capital assets, depreciable business property, real property
used in the trade or business, and Section 197 intangibles of
an organization registrant under the Compassionate Use of
Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. The amount of the surcharge
is equal to the amount of federal income tax liability for the
taxable year attributable to those sales and exchanges. The
surcharge imposed does not apply if:
        (1) the medical cannabis cultivation center
    registration, medical cannabis dispensary registration, or
    the property of a registration is transferred as a result
    of any of the following:
            (A) bankruptcy, a receivership, or a debt
        adjustment initiated by or against the initial
        registration or the substantial owners of the initial
        registration;
            (B) cancellation, revocation, or termination of
        any registration by the Illinois Department of Public
        Health;
            (C) a determination by the Illinois Department of
        Public Health that transfer of the registration is in
        the best interests of Illinois qualifying patients as
        defined by the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis
        Pilot Program Act;
            (D) the death of an owner of the equity interest in
        a registrant;
            (E) the acquisition of a controlling interest in
        the stock or substantially all of the assets of a
        publicly traded company;
            (F) a transfer by a parent company to a wholly
        owned subsidiary; or
            (G) the transfer or sale to or by one person to
        another person where both persons were initial owners
        of the registration when the registration was issued;
        or
        (2) the cannabis cultivation center registration,
    medical cannabis dispensary registration, or the
    controlling interest in a registrant's property is
    transferred in a transaction to lineal descendants in which
    no gain or loss is recognized or as a result of a
    transaction in accordance with Section 351 of the Internal
    Revenue Code in which no gain or loss is recognized.

    Section 915. The Use Tax Act is amended by changing Section
3-10 as follows:
 
    (35 ILCS 105/3-10)
    Sec. 3-10. Rate of tax. Unless otherwise provided in this
Section, the tax imposed by this Act is at the rate of 6.25% of
either the selling price or the fair market value, if any, of
the tangible personal property. In all cases where property
functionally used or consumed is the same as the property that
was purchased at retail, then the tax is imposed on the selling
price of the property. In all cases where property functionally
used or consumed is a by-product or waste product that has been
refined, manufactured, or produced from property purchased at
retail, then the tax is imposed on the lower of the fair market
value, if any, of the specific property so used in this State
or on the selling price of the property purchased at retail.
For purposes of this Section "fair market value" means the
price at which property would change hands between a willing
buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion
to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge of the

order of suspension or revocation, as the case may be, provided
that a certified copy of a stay order of a court is filed with
the Secretary of State. If the conviction is affirmed on
appeal, the date of the conviction shall relate back to the
time the original judgment of conviction was entered and the 6
month limitation prescribed shall not apply.
    (c) 1. Upon suspending or revoking the driver's license or

    which occurred while operating a commercial vehicle in
    connection with the driver's regular occupation. All other
    driving privileges shall be suspended by the Secretary of
    State. Any driver prior to operating a vehicle for

    forms to be provided by the Secretary of State setting
    forth the facts of the person's occupation. The affidavit
    shall also state the number of offenses committed while

    regular occupation only. Unless the permit is issued by the
    Secretary of State prior to the date of suspension, the

    of this Code, the Secretary of State shall either rescind
    or continue an order of revocation or shall substitute an
    order of suspension; or, good cause appearing therefor,
    rescind, continue, change, or extend the order of
    suspension. If the Secretary of State does not rescind the
    order, the Secretary may upon application, to relieve undue
    hardship (as defined by the rules of the Secretary of
    State), issue a restricted driving permit granting the
    privilege of driving a motor vehicle between the
    petitioner's residence and petitioner's place of
    employment or within the scope of the petitioner's
    employment related duties, or to allow the petitioner to
    transport himself or herself, or a family member of the
    petitioner's household to a medical facility, to receive
    necessary medical care, to allow the petitioner to
    transport himself or herself to and from alcohol or drug
    remedial or rehabilitative activity recommended by a
    licensed service provider, or to allow the petitioner to
    transport himself or herself or a family member of the
    petitioner's household to classes, as a student, at an
    accredited educational institution, or to allow the
    petitioner to transport children, elderly persons, or
    disabled persons who do not hold driving privileges and are
    living in the petitioner's household to and from daycare.
    The petitioner must demonstrate that no alternative means
    of transportation is reasonably available and that the
    petitioner will not endanger the public safety or welfare.
    Those multiple offenders identified in subdivision (b)4 of
    Section 6-208 of this Code, however, shall not be eligible
    for the issuance of a restricted driving permit.
             (A) If a person's license or permit is revoked or
        suspended due to 2 or more convictions of violating
        Section 11-501 of this Code or a similar provision of a
        local ordinance or a similar out-of-state offense, or
        Section 9-3 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the
        Criminal Code of 2012, where the use of alcohol or
        other drugs is recited as an element of the offense, or
        a similar out-of-state offense, or a combination of
        these offenses, arising out of separate occurrences,
        that person, if issued a restricted driving permit, may
        not operate a vehicle unless it has been equipped with
        an ignition interlock device as defined in Section
        1-129.1.
            (B) If a person's license or permit is revoked or
        suspended 2 or more times within a 10 year period due
        to any combination of:
                (i) a single conviction of violating Section
            11-501 of this Code or a similar provision of a
            local ordinance or a similar out-of-state offense
            or Section 9-3 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the
            Criminal Code of 2012, where the use of alcohol or
            other drugs is recited as an element of the
            offense, or a similar out-of-state offense; or
                (ii) a statutory summary suspension or
            revocation under Section 11-501.1; or
                (iii) a suspension under Section 6-203.1;
        arising out of separate occurrences; that person, if
        issued a restricted driving permit, may not operate a
        vehicle unless it has been equipped with an ignition
        interlock device as defined in Section 1-129.1.
            (C) The person issued a permit conditioned upon the
        use of an ignition interlock device must pay to the
        Secretary of State DUI Administration Fund an amount
        not to exceed $30 per month. The Secretary shall
        establish by rule the amount and the procedures, terms,
        and conditions relating to these fees.
            (D) If the restricted driving permit is issued for
        employment purposes, then the prohibition against
        operating a motor vehicle that is not equipped with an
        ignition interlock device does not apply to the
        operation of an occupational vehicle owned or leased by
        that person's employer when used solely for employment
        purposes.
            (E) In each case the Secretary may issue a
        restricted driving permit for a period deemed
        appropriate, except that all permits shall expire
        within one year from the date of issuance. The
        Secretary may not, however, issue a restricted driving
        permit to any person whose current revocation is the
        result of a second or subsequent conviction for a
        violation of Section 11-501 of this Code or a similar
        provision of a local ordinance or any similar
        out-of-state offense, or Section 9-3 of the Criminal
        Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012, where the
        use of alcohol or other drugs is recited as an element
        of the offense, or any similar out-of-state offense, or
        any combination of those offenses, until the
        expiration of at least one year from the date of the
        revocation. A restricted driving permit issued under
        this Section shall be subject to cancellation,
        revocation, and suspension by the Secretary of State in
        like manner and for like cause as a driver's license
        issued under this Code may be cancelled, revoked, or
        suspended; except that a conviction upon one or more
        offenses against laws or ordinances regulating the
        movement of traffic shall be deemed sufficient cause
        for the revocation, suspension, or cancellation of a
        restricted driving permit. The Secretary of State may,
        as a condition to the issuance of a restricted driving
        permit, require the applicant to participate in a
        designated driver remedial or rehabilitative program.
        The Secretary of State is authorized to cancel a
        restricted driving permit if the permit holder does not
        successfully complete the program.
    (c-3) In the case of a suspension under paragraph 43 of
subsection (a), reports received by the Secretary of State
under this Section shall, except during the actual time the
suspension is in effect, be privileged information and for use
only by the courts, police officers, prosecuting authorities,
the driver licensing administrator of any other state, the
Secretary of State, or the parent or legal guardian of a driver
under the age of 18. However, beginning January 1, 2008, if the
person is a CDL holder, the suspension shall also be made
available to the driver licensing administrator of any other
state, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the affected
driver or motor carrier or prospective motor carrier upon
request.
    (c-4) In the case of a suspension under paragraph 43 of
subsection (a), the Secretary of State shall notify the person
by mail that his or her driving privileges and driver's license
will be suspended one month after the date of the mailing of
the notice.
    (c-5) The Secretary of State may, as a condition of the
reissuance of a driver's license or permit to an applicant
whose driver's license or permit has been suspended before he
or she reached the age of 21 years pursuant to any of the
provisions of this Section, require the applicant to
participate in a driver remedial education course and be
retested under Section 6-109 of this Code.
    (d) This Section is subject to the provisions of the
Drivers License Compact.
    (e) The Secretary of State shall not issue a restricted
driving permit to a person under the age of 16 years whose
driving privileges have been suspended or revoked under any
provisions of this Code.
    (f) In accordance with 49 C.F.R. 384, the Secretary of
State may not issue a restricted driving permit for the

    (625 ILCS 5/6-206.1)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-206.1)
    Sec. 6-206.1. Monitoring Device Driving Permit.
Declaration of Policy. It is hereby declared a policy of the
State of Illinois that the driver who is impaired by alcohol,
other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or compounds is a
threat to the public safety and welfare. Therefore, to provide
a deterrent to such practice, a statutory summary driver's
license suspension is appropriate. It is also recognized that
driving is a privilege and therefore, that the granting of
driving privileges, in a manner consistent with public safety,
is warranted during the period of suspension in the form of a
monitoring device driving permit. A person who drives and fails
to comply with the requirements of the monitoring device
driving permit commits a violation of Section 6-303 of this
Code.
    The following procedures shall apply whenever a first
offender, as defined in Section 11-500 of this Code, is
arrested for any offense as defined in Section 11-501 or a
similar provision of a local ordinance and is subject to the
provisions of Section 11-501.1:
    (a) Upon mailing of the notice of suspension of driving
privileges as provided in subsection (h) of Section 11-501.1 of
this Code, the Secretary shall also send written notice
informing the person that he or she will be issued a monitoring
device driving permit (MDDP). The notice shall include, at
minimum, information summarizing the procedure to be followed
for issuance of the MDDP, installation of the breath alcohol
ignition installation device (BAIID), as provided in this
Section, exemption from BAIID installation requirements, and
procedures to be followed by those seeking indigent status, as
provided in this Section. The notice shall also include
information summarizing the procedure to be followed if the
person wishes to decline issuance of the MDDP. A copy of the
notice shall also be sent to the court of venue together with
the notice of suspension of driving privileges, as provided in
subsection (h) of Section 11-501. However, a MDDP shall not be
issued if the Secretary finds that:
        (1) The offender's driver's license is otherwise
    invalid;
        (2) Death or great bodily harm resulted from the arrest
    for Section 11-501;
        (3) The offender has been previously convicted of
    reckless homicide or aggravated driving under the
    influence involving death; or
        (4) The offender is less than 18 years of age; or
        (5) The offender is a qualifying patient licensed under
    the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act
    who is in possession of a valid registry card issued under
    that Act and refused to submit to standardized field
    sobriety tests as required by subsection (a-5) of Section
    11-501.1 or did submit to testing and failed the test or
    tests.
    Any offender participating in the MDDP program must pay the
Secretary a MDDP Administration Fee in an amount not to exceed
$30 per month, to be deposited into the Monitoring Device
Driving Permit Administration Fee Fund. The Secretary shall
establish by rule the amount and the procedures, terms, and
conditions relating to these fees. The offender must have an
ignition interlock device installed within 14 days of the date
the Secretary issues the MDDP. The ignition interlock device
provider must notify the Secretary, in a manner and form
prescribed by the Secretary, of the installation. If the
Secretary does not receive notice of installation, the
Secretary shall cancel the MDDP.
    A MDDP shall not become effective prior to the 31st day of
the original statutory summary suspension.
    Upon receipt of the notice, as provided in paragraph (a) of
this Section, the person may file a petition to decline
issuance of the MDDP with the court of venue. The court shall
admonish the offender of all consequences of declining issuance
of the MDDP including, but not limited to, the enhanced
penalties for driving while suspended. After being so
admonished, the offender shall be permitted, in writing, to
execute a notice declining issuance of the MDDP. This notice
shall be filed with the court and forwarded by the clerk of the
court to the Secretary. The offender may, at any time
thereafter, apply to the Secretary for issuance of a MDDP.
    (a-1) A person issued a MDDP may drive for any purpose and
at any time, subject to the rules adopted by the Secretary
under subsection (g). The person must, at his or her own
expense, drive only vehicles equipped with an ignition
interlock device as defined in Section 1-129.1, but in no event
shall such person drive a commercial motor vehicle.
    (a-2) Persons who are issued a MDDP and must drive
employer-owned vehicles in the course of their employment
duties may seek permission to drive an employer-owned vehicle
that does not have an ignition interlock device. The employer
shall provide to the Secretary a form, as prescribed by the
Secretary, completed by the employer verifying that the
employee must drive an employer-owned vehicle in the course of
employment. If approved by the Secretary, the form must be in
the driver's possession while operating an employer-owner
vehicle not equipped with an ignition interlock device. No
person may use this exemption to drive a school bus, school
vehicle, or a vehicle designed to transport more than 15
passengers. No person may use this exemption to drive an
employer-owned motor vehicle that is owned by an entity that is
wholly or partially owned by the person holding the MDDP, or by
a family member of the person holding the MDDP. No person may
use this exemption to drive an employer-owned vehicle that is
made available to the employee for personal use. No person may
drive the exempted vehicle more than 12 hours per day, 6 days
per week.
    (a-3) Persons who are issued a MDDP and who must drive a
farm tractor to and from a farm, within 50 air miles from the
originating farm are exempt from installation of a BAIID on the
farm tractor, so long as the farm tractor is being used for the
exclusive purpose of conducting farm operations.
    (b) (Blank).
    (c) (Blank).
    (c-1) If the holder of the MDDP is convicted of or receives
court supervision for a violation of Section 6-206.2, 6-303,
11-204, 11-204.1, 11-401, 11-501, 11-503, 11-506 or a similar
provision of a local ordinance or a similar out-of-state
offense or is convicted of or receives court supervision for
any offense for which alcohol or drugs is an element of the
offense and in which a motor vehicle was involved (for an
arrest other than the one for which the MDDP is issued), or
de-installs the BAIID without prior authorization from the
Secretary, the MDDP shall be cancelled.
    (c-5) If the Secretary determines that the person seeking
the MDDP is indigent, the Secretary shall provide the person
with a written document as evidence of that determination, and
the person shall provide that written document to an ignition
interlock device provider. The provider shall install an
ignition interlock device on that person's vehicle without
charge to the person, and seek reimbursement from the Indigent
BAIID Fund. If the Secretary has deemed an offender indigent,
the BAIID provider shall also provide the normal monthly
monitoring services and the de-installation without charge to
the offender and seek reimbursement from the Indigent BAIID
Fund. Any other monetary charges, such as a lockout fee or
reset fee, shall be the responsibility of the MDDP holder. A
BAIID provider may not seek a security deposit from the
Indigent BAIID Fund.
    (d) MDDP information shall be available only to the courts,
police officers, and the Secretary, except during the actual
period the MDDP is valid, during which time it shall be a
public record.
    (e) (Blank).
    (f) (Blank).
    (g) The Secretary shall adopt rules for implementing this
Section. The rules adopted shall address issues including, but
not limited to: compliance with the requirements of the MDDP;
methods for determining compliance with those requirements;
the consequences of noncompliance with those requirements;
what constitutes a violation of the MDDP; methods for
determining indigency; and the duties of a person or entity
that supplies the ignition interlock device.
    (h) The rules adopted under subsection (g) shall provide,
at a minimum, that the person is not in compliance with the
requirements of the MDDP if he or she:
        (1) tampers or attempts to tamper with or circumvent
    the proper operation of the ignition interlock device;
        (2) provides valid breath samples that register blood
    alcohol levels in excess of the number of times allowed
    under the rules;
        (3) fails to provide evidence sufficient to satisfy the
    Secretary that the ignition interlock device has been
    installed in the designated vehicle or vehicles; or
        (4) fails to follow any other applicable rules adopted
    by the Secretary.
    (i) Any person or entity that supplies an ignition
interlock device as provided under this Section shall, in
addition to supplying only those devices which fully comply
with all the rules adopted under subsection (g), provide the
Secretary, within 7 days of inspection, all monitoring reports
of each person who has had an ignition interlock device
installed. These reports shall be furnished in a manner or form
as prescribed by the Secretary.
    (j) Upon making a determination that a violation of the
requirements of the MDDP has occurred, the Secretary shall
extend the summary suspension period for an additional 3 months
beyond the originally imposed summary suspension period,
during which time the person shall only be allowed to drive
vehicles equipped with an ignition interlock device; provided
further there are no limitations on the total number of times
the summary suspension may be extended. The Secretary may,
however, limit the number of extensions imposed for violations
occurring during any one monitoring period, as set forth by
rule. Any person whose summary suspension is extended pursuant
to this Section shall have the right to contest the extension
through a hearing with the Secretary, pursuant to Section 2-118
of this Code. If the summary suspension has already terminated
prior to the Secretary receiving the monitoring report that
shows a violation, the Secretary shall be authorized to suspend
the person's driving privileges for 3 months, provided that the
Secretary may, by rule, limit the number of suspensions to be
entered pursuant to this paragraph for violations occurring
during any one monitoring period. Any person whose license is
suspended pursuant to this paragraph, after the summary
suspension had already terminated, shall have the right to
contest the suspension through a hearing with the Secretary,
pursuant to Section 2-118 of this Code. The only permit the
person shall be eligible for during this new suspension period
is a MDDP.
    (k) A person who has had his or her summary suspension
extended for the third time, or has any combination of 3
extensions and new suspensions, entered as a result of a
violation that occurred while holding the MDDP, so long as the
extensions and new suspensions relate to the same summary
suspension, shall have his or her vehicle impounded for a
period of 30 days, at the person's own expense. A person who
has his or her summary suspension extended for the fourth time,
or has any combination of 4 extensions and new suspensions,
entered as a result of a violation that occurred while holding
the MDDP, so long as the extensions and new suspensions relate
to the same summary suspension, shall have his or her vehicle
subject to seizure and forfeiture. The Secretary shall notify
the prosecuting authority of any third or fourth extensions or
new suspension entered as a result of a violation that occurred
while the person held a MDDP. Upon receipt of the notification,
the prosecuting authority shall impound or forfeit the vehicle.
The impoundment or forfeiture of a vehicle shall be conducted
pursuant to the procedure specified in Article 36 of the
Criminal Code of 2012.
    (l) A person whose driving privileges have been suspended
under Section 11-501.1 of this Code and who had a MDDP that was
cancelled, or would have been cancelled had notification of a
violation been received prior to expiration of the MDDP,
pursuant to subsection (c-1) of this Section, shall not be
eligible for reinstatement when the summary suspension is
scheduled to terminate. Instead, the person's driving
privileges shall be suspended for a period of not less than
twice the original summary suspension period, or for the length
of any extensions entered under subsection (j), whichever is
longer. During the period of suspension, the person shall be
eligible only to apply for a restricted driving permit. If a
restricted driving permit is granted, the offender may only
operate vehicles equipped with a BAIID in accordance with this
Section.
    (m) Any person or entity that supplies an ignition
interlock device under this Section shall, for each ignition
interlock device installed, pay 5% of the total gross revenue
received for the device, including monthly monitoring fees,
into the Indigent BAIID Fund. This 5% shall be clearly
indicated as a separate surcharge on each invoice that is
issued. The Secretary shall conduct an annual review of the
fund to determine whether the surcharge is sufficient to
provide for indigent users. The Secretary may increase or
decrease this surcharge requirement as needed.
    (n) Any person or entity that supplies an ignition
interlock device under this Section that is requested to
provide an ignition interlock device to a person who presents
written documentation of indigency from the Secretary, as
provided in subsection (c-5) of this Section, shall install the
device on the person's vehicle without charge to the person and
shall seek reimbursement from the Indigent BAIID Fund.
    (o) The Indigent BAIID Fund is created as a special fund in
the State treasury. The Secretary shall, subject to
appropriation by the General Assembly, use all money in the
Indigent BAIID Fund to reimburse ignition interlock device
providers who have installed devices in vehicles of indigent
persons. The Secretary shall make payments to such providers
every 3 months. If the amount of money in the fund at the time
payments are made is not sufficient to pay all requests for
reimbursement submitted during that 3 month period, the
Secretary shall make payments on a pro-rata basis, and those
payments shall be considered payment in full for the requests
submitted.
    (p) The Monitoring Device Driving Permit Administration
Fee Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury.
The Secretary shall, subject to appropriation by the General
Assembly, use the money paid into this fund to offset its
administrative costs for administering MDDPs.
    (q) The Secretary is authorized to prescribe such forms as
it deems necessary to carry out the provisions of this Section.

    (625 ILCS 5/11-501.1)
    Sec. 11-501.1. Suspension of drivers license; statutory
summary alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound
or compounds related suspension or revocation; implied
consent.
    (a) Any person who drives or is in actual physical control
of a motor vehicle upon the public highways of this State shall
be deemed to have given consent, subject to the provisions of
Section 11-501.2, to a chemical test or tests of blood, breath,
or urine for the purpose of determining the content of alcohol,
other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or compounds or
any combination thereof in the person's blood if arrested, as
evidenced by the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Ticket, for any
offense as defined in Section 11-501 or a similar provision of
a local ordinance, or if arrested for violating Section 11-401.
If a law enforcement officer has probable cause to believe the
person was under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs,
intoxicating compound or compounds, or any combination
thereof, the law enforcement officer shall request a chemical
test or tests which shall be administered at the direction of
the arresting officer. The law enforcement agency employing the
officer shall designate which of the aforesaid tests shall be
administered. A urine test may be administered even after a
blood or breath test or both has been administered. For
purposes of this Section, an Illinois law enforcement officer
of this State who is investigating the person for any offense
defined in Section 11-501 may travel into an adjoining state,
where the person has been transported for medical care, to
complete an investigation and to request that the person submit
to the test or tests set forth in this Section. The
requirements of this Section that the person be arrested are
inapplicable, but the officer shall issue the person a Uniform
Traffic Ticket for an offense as defined in Section 11-501 or a
similar provision of a local ordinance prior to requesting that
the person submit to the test or tests. The issuance of the
Uniform Traffic Ticket shall not constitute an arrest, but
shall be for the purpose of notifying the person that he or she
is subject to the provisions of this Section and of the
officer's belief of the existence of probable cause to arrest.
Upon returning to this State, the officer shall file the
Uniform Traffic Ticket with the Circuit Clerk of the county
where the offense was committed, and shall seek the issuance of
an arrest warrant or a summons for the person.
    (a-5) In addition to the requirements and provisions of
subsection (a), any person issued a registry card under the
Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act who
drives or is in actual physical control of a motor vehicle upon
the public highways of this State shall be deemed to have given
consent, subject to the provisions of Section 11-501.2, to
standardized field sobriety tests approved by the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration if arrested, as
evidenced by the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Ticket, for any
offense as defined in Section 11-501 or a similar provision of
a local ordinance, or if arrested for violating Section 11-401.
The person's status as a registry card holder alone is not a
sufficient basis for conducting these tests. The officer must
have an independent, cannabis-related factual basis giving
reasonable suspicion that the person is driving under the
influence of cannabis for conducting standardized field
sobriety tests. This independent basis of suspicion shall be
listed on the standardized field sobriety test results and any
influence reports made by the arresting officer.
    (b) Any person who is dead, unconscious, or who is
otherwise in a condition rendering the person incapable of
refusal, shall be deemed not to have withdrawn the consent
provided by paragraph (a) of this Section and the test or tests
may be administered, subject to the provisions of Section
11-501.2.
    (c) A person requested to submit to a test as provided
above shall be warned by the law enforcement officer requesting
the test that a refusal to submit to the test will result in
the statutory summary suspension of the person's privilege to
operate a motor vehicle, as provided in Section 6-208.1 of this
Code, and will also result in the disqualification of the
person's privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle, as
provided in Section 6-514 of this Code, if the person is a CDL
holder. The person shall also be warned that a refusal to
submit to the test, when the person was involved in a motor
vehicle accident that caused personal injury or death to
another, will result in the statutory summary revocation of the
person's privilege to operate a motor vehicle, as provided in
Section 6-208.1, and will also result in the disqualification
of the person's privilege to operate a commercial motor
vehicle, as provided in Section 6-514 of this Code, if the
person is a CDL holder. The person shall also be warned by the
law enforcement officer that if the person submits to the test
or tests provided in paragraph (a) of this Section and the
alcohol concentration in the person's blood or breath is 0.08
or greater, or any amount of a drug, substance, or compound
resulting from the unlawful use or consumption of cannabis as
covered by the Cannabis Control Act, a controlled substance
listed in the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, an
intoxicating compound listed in the Use of Intoxicating
Compounds Act, or methamphetamine as listed in the
Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act is
detected in the person's blood or urine, or if the person fails
the standardized field sobriety tests as required by paragraph
(a-5), a statutory summary suspension of the person's privilege
to operate a motor vehicle, as provided in Sections 6-208.1 and
11-501.1 of this Code, and a disqualification of the person's
privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle, as provided in
Section 6-514 of this Code, if the person is a CDL holder, will
be imposed.
    A person who is under the age of 21 at the time the person
is requested to submit to a test as provided above shall, in
addition to the warnings provided for in this Section, be
further warned by the law enforcement officer requesting the
test that if the person submits to the test or tests provided
in paragraph (a) or (a-5) of this Section and the alcohol
concentration in the person's blood or breath is greater than
0.00 and less than 0.08, a suspension of the person's privilege
to operate a motor vehicle, as provided under Sections 6-208.2
and 11-501.8 of this Code, will be imposed. The results of this
test shall be admissible in a civil or criminal action or
proceeding arising from an arrest for an offense as defined in
Section 11-501 of this Code or a similar provision of a local
ordinance or pursuant to Section 11-501.4 in prosecutions for
reckless homicide brought under the Criminal Code of 1961 or
the Criminal Code of 2012. These test results, however, shall
be admissible only in actions or proceedings directly related
to the incident upon which the test request was made.
    (d) If the person refuses testing or submits to a test that
discloses an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more, or any
amount of a drug, substance, or intoxicating compound in the
person's breath, blood, or urine resulting from the unlawful
use or consumption of cannabis listed in the Cannabis Control
Act, a controlled substance listed in the Illinois Controlled
Substances Act, an intoxicating compound listed in the Use of
Intoxicating Compounds Act, or methamphetamine as listed in the
Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, the law
enforcement officer shall immediately submit a sworn report to
the circuit court of venue and the Secretary of State,
certifying that the test or tests was or were requested under
paragraph (a) or (a-5) and the person refused to submit to a
test, or tests, or submitted to testing that disclosed an
alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more. A sworn report
indicating refusal or failure of testing under paragraph (a-5)
of this Section shall include the factual basis of the
arresting officer's reasonable suspicion that the person was
under the influence of cannabis. The person's possession of a
valid registry card under the Compassionate Use of Medical
Cannabis Pilot Program Act alone is not sufficient basis for
reasonable suspicion.
    (e) Upon receipt of the sworn report of a law enforcement
officer submitted under paragraph (d), the Secretary of State
shall enter the statutory summary suspension or revocation and
disqualification for the periods specified in Sections 6-208.1
and 6-514, respectively, and effective as provided in paragraph
(g).
    If the person is a first offender as defined in Section
11-500 of this Code, and is not convicted of a violation of
Section 11-501 of this Code or a similar provision of a local
ordinance, then reports received by the Secretary of State
under this Section shall, except during the actual time the
Statutory Summary Suspension is in effect, be privileged
information and for use only by the courts, police officers,
prosecuting authorities or the Secretary of State, unless the
person is a CDL holder, is operating a commercial motor vehicle
or vehicle required to be placarded for hazardous materials, in
which case the suspension shall not be privileged. Reports
received by the Secretary of State under this Section shall
also be made available to the parent or guardian of a person
under the age of 18 years that holds an instruction permit or a
graduated driver's license, regardless of whether the
statutory summary suspension is in effect. A statutory summary
revocation shall not be privileged information.
    (f) The law enforcement officer submitting the sworn report
under paragraph (d) shall serve immediate notice of the
statutory summary suspension or revocation on the person and
the suspension or revocation and disqualification shall be
effective as provided in paragraph (g).
        (1) In cases where the blood alcohol concentration of
    0.08 or greater or any amount of a drug, substance, or
    compound resulting from the unlawful use or consumption of
    cannabis as covered by the Cannabis Control Act, a
    controlled substance listed in the Illinois Controlled
    Substances Act, an intoxicating compound listed in the Use
    of Intoxicating Compounds Act, or methamphetamine as
    listed in the Methamphetamine Control and Community
    Protection Act is established by a subsequent analysis of
    blood or urine collected at the time of arrest, the
    arresting officer or arresting agency shall give notice as
    provided in this Section or by deposit in the United States
    mail of the notice in an envelope with postage prepaid and
    addressed to the person at his address as shown on the
    Uniform Traffic Ticket and the statutory summary
    suspension and disqualification shall begin as provided in
    paragraph (g). The officer shall confiscate any Illinois
    driver's license or permit on the person at the time of
    arrest. If the person has a valid driver's license or
    permit, the officer shall issue the person a receipt, in a
    form prescribed by the Secretary of State, that will allow
    that person to drive during the periods provided for in
    paragraph (g). The officer shall immediately forward the
    driver's license or permit to the circuit court of venue
    along with the sworn report provided for in paragraph (d).
        (2) In cases indicating refusal or failure of testing
    under paragraph (a-5) of this Section the arresting officer
    or arresting agency shall give notice as provided in this
    Section or by deposit in the United States mail of the
    notice in an envelope with postage prepaid and addressed to
    the person at his or her address as shown on the Uniform
    Traffic Ticket and the statutory summary suspension and
    disqualification shall begin as provided in paragraph (g).
    This notice shall include the factual basis of the
    arresting officer's reasonable suspicion that the person
    was under the influence of cannabis. The person's
    possession of a valid registry card under the Compassionate
    Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act alone is not
    sufficient basis for reasonable suspicion.
    (g) The statutory summary suspension or revocation and
disqualification referred to in this Section shall take effect
on the 46th day following the date the notice of the statutory
summary suspension or revocation was given to the person.
    (h) The following procedure shall apply whenever a person
is arrested for any offense as defined in Section 11-501 or a
similar provision of a local ordinance:
    Upon receipt of the sworn report from the law enforcement
officer, the Secretary of State shall confirm the statutory
summary suspension or revocation by mailing a notice of the
effective date of the suspension or revocation to the person
and the court of venue. The Secretary of State shall also mail
notice of the effective date of the disqualification to the
person. However, should the sworn report be defective by not
containing sufficient information or be completed in error, the
confirmation of the statutory summary suspension or revocation
shall not be mailed to the person or entered to the record;
instead, the sworn report shall be forwarded to the court of
venue with a copy returned to the issuing agency identifying
any defect.
    (i) As used in this Section, "personal injury" includes any
Type A injury as indicated on the traffic accident report
completed by a law enforcement officer that requires immediate
professional attention in either a doctor's office or a medical
facility. A Type A injury includes severely bleeding wounds,
distorted extremities, and injuries that require the injured
party to be carried from the scene.

    (625 ILCS 5/11-501.2)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 11-501.2)
    Sec. 11-501.2. Chemical and other tests.
    (a) Upon the trial of any civil or criminal action or
proceeding arising out of an arrest for an offense as defined
in Section 11-501 or a similar local ordinance or proceedings
pursuant to Section 2-118.1, evidence of the concentration of
alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or
compounds, or any combination thereof in a person's blood or
breath at the time alleged, as determined by analysis of the
person's blood, urine, breath or other bodily substance, shall
be admissible. Where such test is made the following provisions
shall apply:
        1. Chemical analyses of the person's blood, urine,
    breath or other bodily substance to be considered valid
    under the provisions of this Section shall have been
    performed according to standards promulgated by the
    Department of State Police by a licensed physician,
    registered nurse, trained phlebotomist, certified
    paramedic, or other individual possessing a valid permit
    issued by that Department for this purpose. The Director of
    State Police is authorized to approve satisfactory
    techniques or methods, to ascertain the qualifications and
    competence of individuals to conduct such analyses, to
    issue permits which shall be subject to termination or
    revocation at the discretion of that Department and to
    certify the accuracy of breath testing equipment. The
    Department of State Police shall prescribe regulations as
    necessary to implement this Section.
        2. When a person in this State shall submit to a blood
    test at the request of a law enforcement officer under the
    provisions of Section 11-501.1, only a physician
    authorized to practice medicine, a licensed physician
    assistant, a licensed advanced practice nurse, a
    registered nurse, trained phlebotomist, or certified
    paramedic, or other qualified person approved by the
    Department of State Police may withdraw blood for the
    purpose of determining the alcohol, drug, or alcohol and
    drug content therein. This limitation shall not apply to
    the taking of breath or urine specimens.
        When a blood test of a person who has been taken to an
    adjoining state for medical treatment is requested by an
    Illinois law enforcement officer, the blood may be
    withdrawn only by a physician authorized to practice
    medicine in the adjoining state, a licensed physician
    assistant, a licensed advanced practice nurse, a
    registered nurse, a trained phlebotomist acting under the
    direction of the physician, or certified paramedic. The law
    enforcement officer requesting the test shall take custody
    of the blood sample, and the blood sample shall be analyzed
    by a laboratory certified by the Department of State Police
    for that purpose.
        3. The person tested may have a physician, or a
    qualified technician, chemist, registered nurse, or other
    qualified person of their own choosing administer a
    chemical test or tests in addition to any administered at
    the direction of a law enforcement officer. The failure or
    inability to obtain an additional test by a person shall
    not preclude the admission of evidence relating to the test
    or tests taken at the direction of a law enforcement
    officer.
        4. Upon the request of the person who shall submit to a
    chemical test or tests at the request of a law enforcement
    officer, full information concerning the test or tests
    shall be made available to the person or such person's
    attorney.
        5. Alcohol concentration shall mean either grams of
    alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood or grams of alcohol
    per 210 liters of breath.
    (a-5) Law enforcement officials may use standardized field
sobriety tests approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration when conducting investigations of a violation
of Section 11-501 or similar local ordinance by drivers
suspected of driving under the influence of cannabis. The
General Assembly finds that standardized field sobriety tests
approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
are divided attention tasks that are intended to determine if a
person is under the influence of cannabis. The purpose of these
tests is to determine the effect of the use of cannabis on a
person's capacity to think and act with ordinary care and
therefore operate a motor vehicle safely. Therefore, the
results of these standardized field sobriety tests,
appropriately administered, shall be admissible in the trial of
any civil or criminal action or proceeding arising out of an
arrest for a cannabis-related offense as defined in Section
11-501 or a similar local ordinance or proceedings under
Section 2-118.1. Where a test is made the following provisions
shall apply:
        1. The person tested may have a physician, or a
    qualified technician, chemist, registered nurse, or other
    qualified person of their own choosing administer a
    chemical test or tests in addition to the standardized
    field sobriety test or tests administered at the direction
    of a law enforcement officer. The failure or inability to
    obtain an additional test by a person does not preclude the
    admission of evidence relating to the test or tests taken
    at the direction of a law enforcement officer.
        2. Upon the request of the person who shall submit to a
    standardized field sobriety test or tests at the request of
    a law enforcement officer, full information concerning the
    test or tests shall be made available to the person or the
    person's attorney.
        3. At the trial of any civil or criminal action or
    proceeding arising out of an arrest for an offense as
    defined in Section 11-501 or a similar local ordinance or
    proceedings under Section 2-118.1 in which the results of
    these standardized field sobriety tests are admitted, the
    cardholder may present and the trier of fact may consider
    evidence that the card holder lacked the physical capacity
    to perform the standardized field sobriety tests.
    (b) Upon the trial of any civil or criminal action or
proceeding arising out of acts alleged to have been committed
by any person while driving or in actual physical control of a
vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, the concentration
of alcohol in the person's blood or breath at the time alleged
as shown by analysis of the person's blood, urine, breath, or
other bodily substance shall give rise to the following
presumptions:
        1. If there was at that time an alcohol concentration
    of 0.05 or less, it shall be presumed that the person was
    not under the influence of alcohol.
        2. If there was at that time an alcohol concentration
    in excess of 0.05 but less than 0.08, such facts shall not
    give rise to any presumption that the person was or was not
    under the influence of alcohol, but such fact may be
    considered with other competent evidence in determining
    whether the person was under the influence of alcohol.
        3. If there was at that time an alcohol concentration
    of 0.08 or more, it shall be presumed that the person was
    under the influence of alcohol.
        4. The foregoing provisions of this Section shall not
    be construed as limiting the introduction of any other
    relevant evidence bearing upon the question whether the
    person was under the influence of alcohol.
    (c) 1. If a person under arrest refuses to submit to a
chemical test under the provisions of Section 11-501.1,
evidence of refusal shall be admissible in any civil or
criminal action or proceeding arising out of acts alleged to
have been committed while the person under the influence of
alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or
compounds, or any combination thereof was driving or in actual
physical control of a motor vehicle.
    2. Notwithstanding any ability to refuse under this Code to
submit to these tests or any ability to revoke the implied
consent to these tests, if a law enforcement officer has
probable cause to believe that a motor vehicle driven by or in
actual physical control of a person under the influence of
alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or
compounds, or any combination thereof has caused the death or
personal injury to another, the law enforcement officer shall
request, and that person shall submit, upon the request of a
law enforcement officer, to a chemical test or tests of his or
her blood, breath or urine for the purpose of determining the
alcohol content thereof or the presence of any other drug or
combination of both.
    This provision does not affect the applicability of or
imposition of driver's license sanctions under Section
11-501.1 of this Code.
    3. For purposes of this Section, a personal injury includes
any Type A injury as indicated on the traffic accident report
completed by a law enforcement officer that requires immediate
professional attention in either a doctor's office or a medical
facility. A Type A injury includes severe bleeding wounds,
distorted extremities, and injuries that require the injured
party to be carried from the scene.
