Short description: 
VEH CD-SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS-CPR                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Vehicle  Code  to  require  a  person   to      
   successfully  complete  a  class  on  cardiopulmonary resuscitation in      
   order to receive or renew a school bus driver permit.                       
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Transportation)                                
          HB528 will have no fiscal impact on IDOT.                            
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that a person has 60 days after receipt of a school bus       
   driver permit to complete a certified class on cardiopulmonary              
   resuscitation, and that failure to do so shall result in the suspen-        
   sion of the permit until he or she provides certification to the            
   Secretary of State that he or she has successfully completed the            
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (State Board of Education)                       
          The fiscal impact to local school districts/local school bus         
          contracts would be about $1.2 million, based on 25,000 school        
          bus drivers and an estimate of $50/course. This would be in          
          addition to the current $25 fingerprinting fee, the cost for a       
          school bus driver physical examination, the $4 fee for initial       
          and refresher training, and the cost of the appropriate li-          
          censes and permit. The fiscal impact to the State Bd. of Ed.         
          would be the additional costs claimed on the annual claim for        
          transportation reimbursement by districts.                           
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1 (State Board of Education)               
          Same as SBE fiscal note.                                             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Deletes  everything  after  the  enacting  clause.   Amends   the      
   Illinois  Vehicle  Code to provide that the annual refresher course in      
   first aid required to be taken by school bus drivers shall  include  a      
   certified class in cardiopulmonary resuscitation during the first year      
   and every 5 years thereafter.
