    AN ACT concerning enhanced 9-1-1 service.

represented in the General Assembly:

    Section 5.  The Emergency Telephone System Act is amended
by changing Section 15.6 as follows:

    (50 ILCS 750/15.6)
    Sec.   15.6.  Private   business   switch  service  9-1-1
    (a)   After June 30, 1996, an  entity  that  installs  or
operates a new private business switch service or replaces an
existing   private   business  switch  service  and  provides
telecommunications facilities or services to businesses shall
provide to those business end users the same level  of  9-1-1
service  as  the  public  agency  and  the telecommunications
carrier are providing to other  business  end  users  of  the
local  9-1-1  system.  This service shall include, but not be
limited to, the capability to identify the telephone  number,
extension  number,  and  the  physical  location  that is the
source of the call to the number designated as the  emergency
telephone  number.   After  June  30, 2000 1999, all entities
providing or operating  a  private  business  switch  service
shall be in compliance with this Section.
    (b)  The  private business switch operator is responsible
for forwarding end  user  automatic  location  identification
record  information to the 9-1-1 system provider according to
the format, frequency, and  procedures  established  by  that
system provider.
    (c)  This  Act  does  not  apply  to  any  PBX  telephone
extension  that uses radio transmissions to convey electrical
signals directly between  the  telephone  extension  and  the
serving PBX.
    (d)  An  entity that violates this Section is guilty of a
business offense and shall be fined not less than $1,000  and
not more than $5,000.
    (e)  Nothing  in  this  Section  shall  be  construed  to
preclude  the Attorney General on behalf of the Commission or
on his or her own initiative, or any other interested person,
from seeking judicial relief,  by  mandamus,  injunction,  or
otherwise, to compel compliance with this Section.
