Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act. Provides that harm or potential harm to the residents of a long term care facility constitutes a disaster under the Act. Provides that the Governor's comprehensive plan and program for emergency management of the State and emergency operations plans shall include provisions concerning identifying necessary resources to allow a resident of a long term care facility to remain in his or her long term care facility, prioritizing restoration of power or securing alternative power sources, and identifying alternative facilities and emergency transportation for the evacuation of a long term care facility. Provides that the Illinois Emergency Management Agency shall establish a protocol for canvassing long term care facilities in a disaster area to determine what resources are needed to permit the residents to remain in place, the need for evacuation assistance, or the status of power at long term care facilities. Makes additional changes to provisions concerning the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, emergency powers of the Governor, mobile support teams, and private liability. Amends the Public Utilities Act. Provides that the Illinois Commerce Commission, in collaboration with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, shall establish by rule a priority order for the restoration of power or securing alternative power sources and shall place long term care facilities licensed under the Nursing Home Care Act in the top tier of priority with other residential health care facilities. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act. In a provision concerning the emergency powers of the Governor, provides that the Governor has the power to suspend the provisions of managed care contracts and to order the mandatory emergency evacuation of a long term care facility and facilities selected for the supportive living facilities program under the Illinois Public Aid Code when it is determined, in consultation with the Director of Public Health, that evacuation is the best solution to eliminating the potential for harm. Provides that a long term care facility notified of a mandatory emergency evacuation order shall provide a list of resources needed to the Governor or his or her designee to safely implement the order. Effective immediately.
