Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that, when information is obtained from a driver's license to identify or prove the age of the holder of the license, or in the course of a commercial transaction, that information may be used only for purposes of identification of the individual or for completing the commercial transaction in which the information was obtained. Provides that the information may not be used for any other purpose and may not be provided to a third party. Provides that a person whose driver's license information was used in violation of the provision is entitled to recover $250 for each violation, plus attorney's fees and costs. Creates exceptions.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
15 ILCS 335/14D new

Provides that a person whose driver's license information was used in violation of the provision is entitled to recover actual damages, but not less than liquidated damages in the amount of $250 for each violation (rather than simply being entitled to recover $250 for each violation). Amends the Illinois Identification Card Act. Provides that the provisions of the bill, as amended, with regard to the use of information obtained from a driver's license also apply to information obtained from an identification card issued by the Secretary of State.

 Fiscal Note (Office of the Secretary of State)
 House Bill 487 will not have a fiscal impact on the Secretary of State's Office.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the provisions do not apply to the transfer of information to a third party if (i) a federal or State law, rule, or regulation requires that the information be transferred to a third party after being recorded in specified transactions or (ii) the information is transferred to a third party for purposes of the detection or possible prosecution of criminal offenses or fraud. Provides that, if information is transferred to a third party under these provisions, it may be used only for the purposes authorized by these provisions.
