    AN ACT concerning regulation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Community-Integrated Living Arrangements
Licensure and Certification Act is amended by changing Section
13 as follows:
    (210 ILCS 135/13)
    Sec. 13. Fire inspections; authority.
    (a) Per the requirements of Public Act 96-1141, on January
1, 2011 a report titled "Streamlined Auditing and Monitoring
for Community Based Services: First Steps Toward a More
Efficient System for Providers, State Government, and the
Community" was provided for members of the General Assembly.
The report, which was developed by a steering committee of
community providers, trade associations, and designated
representatives from the Departments of Children and Family
Services, Healthcare and Family Services, Human Services, and
Public Health, issued a series of recommendations, including
recommended changes to Administrative Rules and Illinois
statutes, on the categories of deemed status for accreditation,
fiscal audits, centralized repository of information,
Medicaid, technology, contracting, and streamlined monitoring
procedures. It is the intent of the 97th General Assembly to
pursue implementation of those recommendations that have been
determined to require Acts of the General Assembly.
    (b) For community-integrated living arrangements licensed
under this Act, the Office of the State Fire Marshal shall
provide the necessary fire inspection to comply with licensing
requirements. The Office of the State Fire Marshal may enter
into an agreement with another State agency to conduct this
inspection if qualified personnel are employed by that agency
code enforcement inspection of the facility by the local
authority may occur if the local authority having jurisdiction
enforces code requirements that are equal to those enforced by
the State Fire Marshal. Nothing in this Section shall limit a
local authority with jurisdiction from conducting local code
inspection and enforcement or prohibit a local fire authority
from conducting fire incident planning activities.
