Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Behavior Analyst Licensing Act. Provides for licensure of behavior analysts, assistant behavior analysts, and behavior technicians by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Contains provisions concerning licensure requirements, qualifications, the Board of Behavior Analysts, provisional licenses, and rules. Amends the Public Aid Code to provide that treatment of autism spectrum disorder through applied behavior analysis shall be covered under the medical assistance program for children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder when ordered by a behavior analyst licensed by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to practice applied behavior analysis in the State of Illinois. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Removes language providing that each applicant for licensure as an assistant behavior analyst shall have his or her fingerprints submitted to the Illinois State Police in the form and manner prescribed by the Illinois State Police. Provides instead that each applicant for licensure as an assistant behavior analyst shall have his or her fingerprints submitted to the Illinois State Police in an electronic format that complies with the form and manner for requesting and furnishing criminal history record information as prescribed by the Illinois State Police. Provides that the criminal history record databases to be checked include, but are not limited to, civil, criminal, and latent fingerprint databases. Provides that the fee charged by the Illinois State Police for conducting the criminal history records check shall not exceed the actual cost of the records check (rather than the actual cost of the Illinois and national criminal history record check). Provides that the Illinois State Police shall furnish records of Illinois convictions as prescribed under the Illinois Uniform Conviction Information Act and shall forward the national criminal history record information to the Department.
