Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Boat Registration and Safety Act and the Snowmobile
Registration and Safety Act. Provides that a person may not operate a
snowmobile or boat if his or her alcohol concentration exceeds the
level specified in the Illinois Vehicle Code (rather than 0.10).
Amends the Boat Registration and Safety Act to provide that a person
convicted of operating a watercraft while under the influence is
guilty of a Class 4 felony if that person had a previous conviction
for driving a motor vehicle or snowmobile while under the influence.
Provides that a police officer who has reasonable suspicion (instead
of probable cause) to believe that a person is under the influence may
request the person to submit to a breath screening test.
