    AN ACT concerning regulation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Hospital Licensing Act is amended by adding
Section 6.27 as follows:
    (210 ILCS 85/6.27 new)
    Sec. 6.27. Intended parent; delivery room.
    (a) As used in this Section, "gestational surrogate",
"gestational surrogacy contract", and "intended parent" have
the meanings given to those terms in Section 10 of the
Gestational Surrogacy Act.
    (b) If a hospital has a gestational surrogacy contract on
file for a gestational surrogate or has otherwise received the
gestational surrogacy contract from a gestational surrogate,
the hospital may not deny an intended parent entry into the
delivery room where the gestational surrogate is being induced
or in labor, except as provided under subsection (c).
    (c) A hospital is not required to allow entry into the
delivery room to an intended parent if: (1) medical personnel
determine that the gestational surrogate's life or health could
be jeopardized if an intended parent is present; (2) the
gestational surrogacy contract prohibits an intended parent
from being present; or (3) medical personnel determine there is
other good cause to prohibit an intended parent from being
present, including, but not limited to, if the intended parent
is causing a disturbance or other security concerns.
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.
