Synopsis As Introduced

Provides that any person employed by the Department of State Police or the Department of Corrections who tests positive in accordance with established Departmental drug testing procedures for any substance prohibited by the Cannabis Control Act, the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, or the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act may (rather than shall) be discharged from employment. Provides that refusal to submit to a drug test, ordered in accordance with Departmental procedures, by any person employed by the respective Department may (rather than shall) be construed as a positive test, and the person shall be discharged from employment. Provides the changes made to these provisions shall apply to all pending and future incidents. Effective immediately.

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill, but provides any person employed by the Department of State Police or the Department of Corrections who tests positive in accordance with established Departmental drug testing procedures for any substance prohibited by the Cannabis Control Act may be discharged from employment (in the introduced version, also included positive tests for substances prohibited by the Illinois Controlled Substances Act or the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act as a "may" discharge from employment rather than "shall" discharge).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Amends Senate Bill 3136 as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1. Restores provision that refusal to submit to a drug test, ordered in accordance with Department of State Police or Department of Corrections procedures, by any person employed by the respective Department shall (Senate Amendment No. 1 changes shall to may) be construed as a positive test, and the person shall be discharged from employment.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Regarding changes to the State Police Act and the Unified Code of Corrections concerning zero tolerance drug policies, recommends: (i) removing language providing that a person employed by the Department of State Police or the Department of Corrections who tests positive for a substance prohibited by the Cannabis Control Act may be discharged from employment; and (ii) providing that a person employed by the Department of State Police or the Department of Corrections who tests positive for a substance prohibited by the Cannabis Control Act, the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, or the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act shall be discharged from employment unless the positive test result was due solely to the use or consumption of a substance controlled by the Cannabis Control Act but authorized for use by the person for medical purposes under Illinois law.
