Short description: 
VEH CD-DRUNK DRIVING PENALTIES                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code  to  change  certain  provisions      
   dealing with driving while under the influence.  Changes the penalties      
   and  period of suspension of driving privileges by basing these on the      
   person's alcohol concentration level.  Provides  that  the  period  of      
   suspension  is  270  days  (instead  of  6  months) and if not a first      
   offender, 2 and one-half years (instead of 2 years)  for  refusing  or      
   failing  to  complete an alcohol or drug concentration test.  Provides      
   that a first offender may be issued a restricted driving permit.  Adds      
   the  requirement  that  a  breath alcohol interlock ignition device be      
   installed in  a  person's  vehicle  if  a  person  with  a  second  or      
   subsequent violation for driving while under the influence is issued a      
   restricted  driving  permit.   Provides  that  a  person convicted for      
   driving while under the influence shall be subject to fines.  Provides      
   that   a  first  offender  shall  be  subject  to  community  service.      
   Increases the fine and hours of community service for when the offense      
   was committed while transporting a person 16 years of age  or  younger      
   (instead  of  under  16).  Adds that after a person is found guilty of      
   driving while under the influence, that person shall  be  required  to      
   complete  an  approved  alcohol or drug education course.  Makes other      
   changes. Effective January 1, 1998.                                         
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          There will be no fiscal or corrections population impact.            
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. of Corrections)                                    
          No change from correctional note.                                    
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          The bill would not increase the need for the number of judges.       
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB1200 does not preempt home rule authority.
