2017 House Bill 4939: Revise “minor-in-possession” law details

Public Act 123 of 2017

Introduced by Rep. Peter Lucido (R) on September 13, 2017 To amend a law passed earlier in 2017 that requires a police officer acting under a “minor in possession of alcohol” law or ordnance to get a court order to get a breath test from a minor who objects. The bill would move the effective date to Jan. 1, 2018 to avoid a conflict between the effective dates of that law and one passed in 2016 that removed the misdemeanor penalties for a first minor-in-possession violation.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Law and Justice Committee on September 13, 2017
Reported in the House on September 19, 2017 With the recommendation that the substitute (H-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
Passed 101 to 6 in the House on September 20, 2017.
