Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. In provisions regarding security improvements that assist a not-for-profit organization in preventing, preparing for, or responding to acts of terrorism, requires the Illinois Emergency Management Agency to determine that an organization is at high risk of being subject to threats, attacks, or acts of terrorism based on the organization's profile, ideology, mission, or beliefs in order to be eligible for assistance under the provisions. Requires the Agency to post specified information on its website. Throughout the provisions, refers to threats, attacks, or acts of terrorism (rather than just acts of terrorism). Makes other changes.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill, and makes the following changes: Provides that eligible security improvements shall not duplicate, in part or in whole, a project included under any awarded federal grant or in a pending federal application. Requires that any security improvements awarded remain at the physical property listed in the grant application, unless authorized by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency rule or approved by the Agency in writing. Removes language providing that the Agency shall post on its website, and update prior to each funding opportunity, a list of actively licensed private security contractors maintained by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, a list of local law enforcement departments across the State, and a list of other entities that offer no-cost vulnerability assessments.
