NOTICE-FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROM                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Liquor  Control  Act   of   1934   and   the   Civil      
   Administrative  Code  of  Illinois.  Requires a retailer who sells any      
   alcoholic beverages for consumption on the  premises  to  post,  in  a      
   conspicuous  place in its ladies restroom, a sign which clearly reads:      
   "Warning: Drinking alcoholic  beverages  during  pregnancy  can  cause      
   birth  defects."  Requires  the  Department  of  Revenue  to make such      
   warning signs available to retailers of alcoholic beverages.   Permits      
   the  Department  to  charge  a  fee  to  cover  printing, postage, and      
   handling expenses. Imposes fines for violations. Provides that the          
   the Department of Public Health shall enforce this provision.               
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          20 ILCS 2310/55.91 new                                               
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          235 ILCS 5/3-12                                                      
          235 ILCS 5/6-24a                                                     
        Deletes provisions amending  the  Civil  Administrative  Code  of      
   Illinois.  Transfers  enforcement  and  operation  of the warning sign      
   provisions to the State Liquor Control Commission.  Provides that  the      
   requirement  that  all  retail  licensees  must  display birth defects      
   warning signs shall apply only to retail licensees who sell  alcoholic      
   liquor for consumption off the retail license premises.                     
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Public Health)                    
          IDPH will not incur a cost related to this legislation, but          
          IDPH would defer a position on the fiscal impact to the Liquor       
          Control Commission, as they are the agency directly impacted.        
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Department of Corrections)                
          There would be no fiscal or prison population impact on DOC.         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 3.                                                 
        Further amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934.  Changes the  text      
   of  the warning sign that a retailer who sells alcoholic beverages for      
   consumption on the premises must  post  in  every  restroom  to  which      
   females have access. Changes the penalty for failure to post a sign.        
          BALANCED BUDGET NOTE, H-AM 3 (Bureau of the Budget)                  
          Since this bill is not a supplemental appropriation bill, the        
          Balanced Budget Note Act is inapplicable.                            
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE, H-AM 3 (Department of Corrections)                
          There would be no fiscal or population impact on DOC.
