    Sec. 3. (a) If reproductions of original business records are made, the preservation of such reproductions constitutes compliance with any laws of this State requiring that business records be kept or preserved, subject to the following conditions:
    (1) The reproductions shall be made in the regular course of business or pursuant to a general plan for making reproductions of records;
    (2) Persons required to keep the records shall without expense to the State make the reproductions available during usual business hours to State officers or authorized employees entitled to inspect or examine the records by running or projecting the reproductions for the inspection or examination of such officers, or employees, and shall so run or project the reproductions as to make it possible for such officers or employees to make notes or copies thereof;
    (3) Persons required to keep the records, upon the request of the State department or agency charged with the administration of the Act requiring the records to be kept, shall without expense to the State provide enlargements of the reproductions in approximately original size of any and all records to the possession of which the department or agency would be entitled if reproductions have not been made.
    (b) A reproduction constituting compliance with laws requiring the keeping of records under subsection (a), or an enlargement of such reproduction, when satisfactorily identified, is admissible in evidence, in instances where the original record would be admissible, to prove the contents of the original record in any judicial or administrative proceeding concerned with the enforcement of the laws of this State.
