Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Motor Fuel Tax Law.  Provides that special  fuel  sold      
   or  used for non-highway purposes must contain Solvent Red 164 dye and      
   be transported only   with  conspicuous  notice.   Creates  additional      
   penalties  for  violations  of  the  amendatory  provisions concerning      
   special fuel.  Provides that no payment  of  tax  by  distributors  or      
   suppliers  shall  be  made  upon dyed diesel fuel used for non-highway      
   purposes. Prohibits the collection of a tax  on  1-K  kerosene  except      
   when  delivered directly into the fuel supply tanks of motor vehicles.      
   Provides that a duly authorized agent of the  Department  of  Revenue,      
   upon  presenting  appropriate  credentials  and  written  notice,  may      
   inspect the premises of entities handling motor fuel or special fuels.      
   Deletes  certain  provisions concerning bulk user licenses and returns      
   and persons engaged in special fuel distribution by  vehicle.   Amends      
   the  Illinois Vehicle Code. Prohibits a motor carrier from operating a      
   commercial motor vehicle with a revoked motor fuel tax license.  Makes      
   other changes.  Effective January 1, 2000.                                  
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Makes technical changes.                                               
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          415 ILCS 125/315                                                     
        Further amends the Motor Fuel Tax Law to delete the provisions         
   mandating documentation that certain 1-K kerosene will not be sold          
   for use in highway vehicles. Provides that a distributor may make           
   tax-free sales of motor fuel when a sale of special fuel is made to         
   someone other than a licensed distributor or supplier (now licensed         
   distributor, supplier, or bulk user). Provides that no payment of tax       
   by a supplier shall be made upon dyed diesel fuel used by the supplier      
   (instead of distributor). Provides that no claim based upon the use of      
   undyed diesel fuel shall be allowed for unlicensed commercial vehicles      
   operating on private property. Amends the Environmental Impact Fee          
   Law. Imposes the fee on the loss of fuel due to temperature variations      
   if that loss exceeds one percent of the total gallons during the            
   month minus the gallons remaining in storage. Makes other changes.          
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 3.                                                
        Provides that "distributor" means a person who (i) produces motor      
   fuel, (ii) transports motor fuel, or (iii) distributes motor  fuel  by      
   tank vehicle (now who produces motor fuel, or transports motor fuel or      
   distributes motor fuel by tank vehicle).  Makes other changes.              
          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois State Police)                                  
          There would be no fiscal impact on the Department.

          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)
