Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. In regard to unlicensed child care providers receiving funds from the Department of Human Services' child care assistance program, requires such providers to, as a condition of eligibility under the program, authorize in writing a Department of State Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation fingerprint-based criminal history record check, a check of the Department of State Police's Statewide Sex Offender Database, and a check of the Department of State Police's Statewide Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth Database to determine if the child care provider's current address matches that of a convicted felon whether on parole or probation. Provides that the Department of Human Services shall by rule set standards for determining when to disqualify an unlicensed child care provider for payment because the provider's current address matches the address of a person listed in the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS). Adds a provision requiring the Department to submit a report to the General Assembly by January 1, 2014 and the year thereafter regarding the Department's compliance with these new investigation requirements.
