Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Commemorative Dates Act. Provides that the second day of April of each year is a holiday to be known as Autism Awareness Day to be observed throughout the State as a day to promote the awareness of autism. Amends the Election Code, the Illinois Procurement Code, the School Code, and the Promissory Note and Bank Holiday Act to include Autism Awareness Day as a holiday.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
10 ILCS 5/1-6
30 ILCS 500/15-45
105 ILCS 5/24-2
205 ILCS 630/17

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Provides that the first full week of April of each year is designated as Autism Awareness Week (rather than designated as a holiday to be known as Autism Awareness Day) to be observed throughout the State as a week to promote the awareness of autism and to encourage school districts, organizations, businesses, and local residents to support this week and participate in informed educational events planned to commemorate the occasion. Removes provisions creating Autism Awareness Day as a holiday.
