Amends the Drug Court Treatment Act.

Eliminates provision that the defendant may be admitted into a drug court program only upon the agreement of the prosecutor if: (1) the defendant is charged with a Class 2 or greater felony violation of various manufacturing, delivery, trafficking, and drug conspiracy violations of the Cannabis Control Act, the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, or the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act; or (2) the defendant has previously, on 3 or more occasions, either completed a drug court program, been discharged from a drug court program, or been terminated from a drug court program. Effective immediately.
Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Drug Court Act. Provides that the definition of "drug court" also means any court that primarily accepts defendants charged with driving while impaired with either alcohol or drugs. Provides that judicial monitoring of these courts shall be in accordance with rules promulgated by the Illinois Supreme Court, in addition to nationally recommended 10 key components of drug courts. Provides that a defendant shall be excluded from a pre-adjudicatory drug court program if the defendant held a commercial driver's license, commercial learner's permit or was operating a commercial motor vehicle at the time of the arrest for a certain violation of the Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar provision of a local ordinance, but may participate in a post-adjudicatory drug court program. Deletes language providing that a defendant may be admitted into a drug court program only upon the agreement of the prosecutor if certain conditions are met. Provides that notwithstanding any other provision of this Act to the contrary, the Secretary of State shall maintain, on the defendant's driving abstract, any conviction for a specified violation of the Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar provision of a local ordinance that was dismissed as the result of successful completion of the terms and conditions of the program. Adds an immediate effective date provision.
