Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Secretary of State Act. Provides that fees for dishonored payments apply to any payment (instead of to each check, money order, or bank draft). Provides that the Secretary shall assess a penalty of 25% for certain dishonored payments. Provides that the Secretary may waive fees for certain duplicate documents for disaster victims who meet specified criteria. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Increases the fee for dishonored payments from $19 to $25 and makes the fee applicable to all dishonored payments (instead of only to checks). Provides that out of each fee collected for dishonored payments, $5 shall be deposited in the Secretary of State Special Services Fund. Provides that penalty fees take effect if the total amount due to the Secretary exceeds $100 (instead of $50). Provides that certain Armed Forces members are exempt from driver's license requirements for a period of 120 (instead of 90) days following the service members' return to the United States. Puts restrictions on the issuance of a graduated driver's license to persons under 18 years of age who are not legally emancipated (instead of legally emancipated by marriage). Removes provisions containing certain restrictions on the operation of a motor vehicle by a graduated driver's license holder. Provides that the Secretary may cancel any license or permit upon determining that the holder has had his or her medical examiner's certificate, medical variance, or both removed or rescinded by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or has failed to self-certify as to the type of driving in which the CDL driver engages or expects to engage. Provides that certain information collected from a driver education provider applicant may be used at administrative hearings relating to the denial, cancellation, suspension, or revocation of a driver training school license. Removes certain language concerning the applicability of a Section concerning chemical testing of motorists involved in a personal injury or fatal motor vehicle accident. Sec. 5.5 of Section 5 and Sec. 3-821 of Section 10 are effective January 1, 2013. The remainder of the Act is effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
15 ILCS 305/6b new

Provides that the authority to waive certain fees for disaster victims extends only for a period of 30 days after the Governor files the proclamation of the disaster and provides additional procedural requirements concerning fee waivers for disaster victims. Provides that if, upon review of the documentation provided by the citizen, the Secretary finds that the citizen was not entitled to a waiver of fees as a disaster victim, the Secretary is to demand payment for services rendered within 60 days and that if payment is not made, the Secretary may cancel or revoke the duplicate certificate of title, vehicle registration, driver's license, or State identification card. Provides that the citizen may request a hearing to contest the action of the Secretary under the new provisions. Changes the definition of "highly restricted personal information" under the Illinois Vehicle Code to include an individual's personal email address.
