    AN ACT concerning State government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The State Fire Marshal Act is amended by adding
Section 4 as follows:
    (20 ILCS 2905/4 new)
    Sec. 4. Rebuilt flame safeguard controls.
    (a) Beginning July 1, 2012, the use of a rebuilt flame
safeguard control in forced air heating equipment in any
non-residential structure is prohibited, unless the rebuilt
flame safeguard control is labeled and listed by a nationally
recognized testing agency. This prohibition does not apply to
structures used for production agriculture, as defined in
Section 3-35 of the Use Tax Act.
    For the purposes of this Section, "flame safeguard control"
means a modular burner management system that is designed to
provide automatic ignition and continuous flame monitoring for
use in forced air heating equipment that uses gas or light oil
fuels, or both.
    (b) Willful failure to remove any rebuilt flame safeguard
control in forced air heating equipment as required by this Act
is a Class B misdemeanor.
    Tampering with, removing, destroying, or disconnecting any
installed flame safeguard control, except in the course of
inspection, maintenance, or replacement of the control, is a
Class A misdemeanor for the first conviction and a Class 4
felony for a second or subsequent conviction.
