725 ILCS 167/15


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Freedom from Drone Surveillance Act. Provides an exemption to the Act for a law enforcement agency that is using a drone to prepare for or monitor safety and security at a large-scale event, if drone usage is limited to legitimate public safety purposes, including, but not limited to, evaluating crowd size, density, or movement, assessing public safety vulnerabilities or weaknesses, determining appropriate staffing levels for law enforcement or other public safety personnel, or identifying possible criminal activity. Defines "large-scale event". Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
725 ILCS 167/35

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Provides that a law enforcement agency that uses a drone under the new exception shall not equip the drone with tear gas canisters, stun gun technology, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or fire a projectile from a drone. Defines "dangerous or deadly weapon". Makes changes to the definition of "large-scale event". Further amends the Freedom from Drone Surveillance Act. Provides that if a law enforcement agency owns one or more drones, the law enforcement agency shall report in writing annually by April 1 to the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority the number of times in the previous year that the law enforcement agency has deployed a drone under each of the exceptions under the Act, including the exception used, the date of the deployment, and location of the deployment. Effective immediately.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State of Illinois.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 There is no corrections population impact or fiscal impact to the Department of Corrections.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to this bill as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.
