    AN ACT concerning corrections.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The County Jail Act is amended by changing
Section 14 as follows:
    (730 ILCS 125/14)  (from Ch. 75, par. 114)
    Sec. 14. At any time, in the opinion of the Warden, the
lives or health of the prisoners are endangered or the security
of the penal institution is threatened, to such a degree as to
render their removal necessary, the Warden may cause an
individual prisoner or a group of the prisoners to be removed
to some suitable place within the county, or to the jail of
some convenient county, where they may be confined until they
can be safely returned to the place whence they were removed.
No prisoner charged with a felony shall be removed by the
warden to a Mental Health or Developmental Disabilities
facility as defined in the Mental Health and Developmental
Disabilities Code, except as specifically authorized by
Article 104 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, or the
Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. Any place to
which the prisoners are so removed shall, during their
imprisonment there, be deemed, as to such prisoners, a prison
of the county in which they were originally confined; but, they
shall be under the care, government and direction of the Warden
of the jail of the county in which they are confined.
