Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Rivers, Lakes and Streams Act. Provides that any person who violates the Act shall be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed $10,000 (instead of $5,000) for a violation not resulting in the potential for loss of life or not associated with dam or floodway construction reasonably valued over $250,000 that continues past a Department of Natural Resources-ordered remediation deadline. Provides that any person who violates the Act shall be liable for a civil penalty of up to 10 times the applicable permit application review fee, but not to exceed $50,000, plus an additional civil penalty not to exceed $1,000 for each day the violation continues past a Department-ordered remediation deadline, for any violation resulting in the potential for loss of life or associated with dam or floodway construction reasonably valued over $250,000. Provides that payment of such penalties does not discharge the required remediation of the violation. Provides that a penalty shall (instead of "may") be paid to the Department and deposited into the State Boating Act Fund. Repeals the Des Plaines and Illinois Rivers Act. Effective immediately.
