    AN ACT concerning State government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Department of Professional Regulation Law of
the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois is amended by adding
Section 2105-20 as follows:
 
    (20 ILCS 2105/2105-20 new)
    Sec. 2105-20. Criminal history records checks. Licensees
or applicants applying for expedited licensure through an
interstate compact enacted into law by the General Assembly,
including, but not limited to, the Interstate Medical Licensure
Compact Act, who have designated Illinois as the principal
state of licensure for the purposes of the compact shall have
his or her fingerprints submitted to the Department of State
Police in an electronic format that complies with the form and
manner for requesting and furnishing criminal history record
information as prescribed by the Department of State Police.
These fingerprints shall be checked against the Department of
State Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal
history record databases now and hereafter filed. The
Department of State Police shall charge applicants or licensees
a fee for conducting the criminal history records check, which
shall be deposited into the State Police Services Fund and
shall not exceed the actual cost of the records check. The
Department of State Police shall furnish, pursuant to positive
identification, records of Illinois convictions to the
Department. The Department may require applicants or licensees
to pay a separate fingerprinting fee, either to the Department
or to a vendor designated or approved by the Department. The
Department, in its discretion, may allow an applicant or
licensee who does not have reasonable access to a designated
vendor to provide his or her fingerprints in an alternative
manner. The Department may adopt any rules necessary to
implement this Section. Communication between the Department
and an interstate compact governing body, including, but not
limited to, the Interstate Commission as defined in Section 180
of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Act, may not
include information received from the Federal Bureau of
Investigation relating to a State and federal criminal history
records check.
 
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.
