    AN ACT concerning local government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Emergency Telephone System Act is amended by
adding Section 17 as follows:
 
    (50 ILCS 750/17 new)
    Sec. 17. 9-1-1 call transfer, forward, or relay.
    (a) The General Assembly finds the following:
        (1) Some 9-1-1 systems throughout this State do not
    have a procedure in place to manually transfer, forward, or
    relay 9-1-1 calls originating within one 9-1-1 system's
    jurisdiction, but which should properly be answered and
    dispatched by another 9-1-1 system, to the appropriate
    9-1-1 system for answering and dispatch of first
    responders.
        (2) On September 25, 1975, the General Assembly gave
    oversight authority to 9-1-1 systems in the State to the
    Illinois Commerce Commission.
        (3) Since that date, the Illinois Commerce Commission
    has authorized individual 9-1-1 systems in counties and
    municipalities to implement and upgrade enhanced 9-1-1
    systems throughout the State.
    (b) The Commission shall prepare a directory of all
authorized 9-1-1 systems in the State of Illinois. The
directory shall include an emergency 10-digit telephone number
for a Primary Public Safety Answering Point located in each
9-1-1 system to which 9-1-1 calls from another jurisdiction can
be transferred. This directory shall be made available to each
9-1-1 authority for its use in establishing standard operating
procedures regarding calls outside its 9-1-1 jurisdiction.
    (c) Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the Manager of the
Commission's 9-1-1 Program with the following information:
        (1) A 10-digit emergency telephone number to which
    9-1-1 calls originating in another 9-1-1 jurisdiction can
    be transferred. Each 9-1-1 system shall provide the
    Commission with any changes to this number immediately upon
    the change occurring. Each 9-1-1 system shall provide this
    10-digit emergency telephone number to the Manager of the
    Commission's 9-1-1 Program within 30 days of the effective
    date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly.
        (2) Its standard operating procedure describing the
    manner in which the 9-1-1 system will transfer, forward, or
    relay 9-1-1 calls originating within its jurisdiction, but
    which should properly be answered and dispatched by another
    9-1-1 system, to the appropriate 9-1-1 system. Each 9-1-1
    system shall provide the standard operating procedures to
    the Manager of the Commission's 9-1-1 Program within 180
    days of the effective date of this amendatory Act of the
    98th General Assembly.
    (d) This Section is repealed on December 31, 2015.
 
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect January
1, 2014.

Effective Date: 1/1/2014
