Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Migrant Labor Camp Law. Includes living quarters for backstretch employees or backstretch workers at Illinois horse race tracks within the definition of "migrant labor camp", so that such facilities are subject to licensure and inspection by the Department of Public Health; requires those camps to meet minimum housing guidelines specified by OSHA. Prescribes features of housing for backstretch worker families with children, and limits the concurrent exercise of home rule powers with respect to the regulation of such housing. Authorizes the Department of Public Health to designate a federal, State, or municipal or other local agency or entity to conduct inspections related to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of laborers, backstretch employees, or backstretch workers. Authorizes the Department or the Department's designated agent to conduct an inspection of a migrant labor camp providing living quarters for backstretch employees or backstretch workers at any time during the horse racing season. Adds representatives of the Department's designated agents to the membership of the advisory committee. Makes other changes. Amends the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975; makes a technical change in a Section concerning the Illinois Race Track Improvement Fund. Effective immediately.
