Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the BPA-Free Kids Act. Beginning June 1, 2011, prohibits the sale or distribution of certain products containing bisphenol-A. Requires a label to be affixed to the exterior of certain food products. Beginning June 1, 2011, prohibits the sale of products that must be, but are not, labelled. Authorizes the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Department of Public Health to participate in an interstate chemical safety clearinghouse. Requires certain notifications and imposes penalties. Provides for enforcement by the Attorney General. Defines "Agency", "baby food", "Department", "infant formula", "manufacturer", "person", and "reusable food or beverage container".

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that, beginning June 1, 2011, any food product, other than infant formula or baby food, that is contained in a can, jar, or plastic container containing bisphenol-A (rather than "in a can, jar, or plastic container") shall bear a conspicuous label stating, "This container is made with bisphenol-A (BPA)".

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Environmental Protection Agency)
 SB 3750 (H-AM 1) would not have any fiscal impact on the Illinois EPA as the Agency would implement its duties under this bill with its existing resources.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Public Health)
 The fiscal impact of SB 3750 (H-AM 1) to the Illinois Department of Public Health will be minimal. It is anticipated that the Department will use existing staff resources to participate in any interstate clearinghouse initiatives that may be developed in the future. Costs incurred will be related to telecommunications and/or reimbursement to staff for travel to meetings.
