VEH CD-DUI-PENALTIES-TESTING                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.   Deletes  language  specifying      
   the term of imprisonment for aggravated DUI, other than in cases where      
   the  offense  caused  great  bodily  harm,  permanent  disability,  or      
   disfigurement  to  another.   Provides that during DUI investigations,      
   hospital personnel must withdraw blood and obtain  urine  samples  for      
   purposes  of  analysis  at  the request of a police officer.  Provides      
   that a serum blood alcohol level of 0.10 is prima facie evidence of  a      
   DUI  violation.   Provides  that  evidence  of  serum blood alcohol is      
   evidence of impairment for purposes of a  DUI  prosecution.   Provides      
   that the results of a preliminary breath screening test are admissible      
   by  the State during a proceeding challenging probable cause for a DUI      
   arrest.   Provides   that   evidence   of   noncompliance   with   the      
   recommendations  of  the  manufacturer  of the breath screening device      
   does not affect the admissibility of the test  results  at  a  hearing      
   challenging probable cause.                                                 
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          There will be no inmates added to the corrections population         
          or no fiscal impact to the Department.                               
          CORRECTIONS NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                              
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
