Short description: 
FLEEING POLICE-PENALTY-SEIZURE                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code and the Criminal Code  of  1961.      
   Amends  the  Vehicle  Code  to  increase  the penalties for fleeing or      
   attempting to  elude  a  police  officer  and  aggravated  fleeing  or      
   attempting  to  elude a police officer.  For the fleeing or attempting      
   to elude offense, provides that the Secretary of State shall  (instead      
   of  may)  suspend  a  driver's  license,  and  increases the period of      
   suspension for a second  conviction.   Makes  a  third  or  subsequent      
   violation  a  Class  4  felony. Provides that an aggravated offense is      
   committed when the flight or attempt is at a certain  rate  of  speed,      
   causes  bodily injury, or causes property damage (instead of requiring      
   a certain rate of speed and bodily injury or private property damage).      
   Removes a provision that provides that any person  convicted  for  the      
   aggravated  offense  is  guilty  of  a Class 4 felony if the flight or      
   attempt to elude causes bodily injury to any individual.   Amends  the      
   Criminal  Code  of  1961  to  provide  that  the  vehicle used in  the      
   aggravated offense is subject to seizure  and  forfeiture.   Effective
