Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Laser System Act of 1997. Defines "laser installation operator", "laser safety officer", "temporary laser display", and "temporary laser display operator". Throughout the Act, refers to laser installation operators or temporary laser display operators (rather than just operators). Requires laser installations to employ a laser safety officer. Requires the Illinois Emergency Management Agency to adopt rules specifying minimum training and experience requirements for laser safety officers. Provides that, if a laser safety officer encounters noncompliance with the Act or rules adopted under the Act in the course of performing his or her duties as a laser safety officer, then the laser safety officer shall report that noncompliance to the Agency as soon as practical. Requires temporary laser display operators to ensure that each temporary laser display has a laser safety officer physically present at the setup, rehearsal, and performance to ensure that all laser systems in operation at the laser installation meet the requirements of the Act and any rules adopted by the Agency under the Act. Requires temporary laser displays and laser safety officers to maintain a policy of general liability insurance in an amount that is commercially reasonable, but not less than $1,000,000, and that covers each temporary laser display and laser safety officer. Requires temporary laser display operators to register with the Agency prior to conducting a temporary laser display. Contains notification requirements. Makes other changes.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Provides that the definition of "laser system" includes laser projectors and laser machines, but does not include any device, machine, equipment, or other apparatus used in the provision of communications through fiber optic cable. Deletes language requiring a laser installation operator to request blanket registration approval by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. Provides that a laser display operator shall provide updated registration information as needed (rather than within 30 days after any change to the information). Makes other technical changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Changes the definition of "laser safety officer". Provides that each laser installation whose function is for the use of a temporary laser display shall use a laser safety officer.
