Amends the Pyrotechnic Operator Licensing Act by changing the short title to the Pyrotechnic Distributor and Operator Licensing Act and amends the Illinois Explosives Act to reflect that change. Defines "pyrotechnic distributor". Provides for licensure requirements and rules for a pyrotechnic distributor (in addition to a lead pyrotechnic operator). Provides that after January 1, 2006, no person may engage in pyrotechnic distribution and no individual may act as a lead operator in a pyrotechnic display without first applying for and obtaining a license (now, after April 1, 2005, no individual may act as a lead operator in a pyrotechnic display without applying for and obtaining a license). Provides that an applicant for a license as a pyrotechnic distributor shall not be granted a license if the distributor or any of its officers, if applicable, was convicted of a felony in the 5 years preceding the date of the application. Provides that no pyrotechnic distributor shall allow any person in the pyrotechnic distributor's employ to act as a lead pyrotechnic distributor until the person has obtained a lead pyrotechnic operator license from the Office of the State Fire Marshal. Effective immediately.
