Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Provides that if a licensee has more than 800 persons at the licensed location at any time while hosting live music, the licensee shall ensure that it has opioid antagonists available at the premises and that there is a sufficient number of staff members on the premises who have been sufficiently trained on how to properly administer an opioid antagonist.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
215 ILCS 5/388h new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Defines "music venue" as an indoor or outdoor location with a capacity of more than 800 persons used as a space to hold a live concert or musical performance. Provides that if a licensee operates as a music venue, the licensee shall ensure that, during its hours of operation as a music venue, it has opioid antagonists available at the premises and that there is a staff member on the premises who has been sufficiently trained on how to properly administer an opioid antagonist. Provides that a person who has been certified in the administration of opioid antagonists by a governmental or private entity, regardless of when the person received that certification, is deemed to be sufficiently trained. Provides an exemption from civil liability for the good faith administration or provision of an opioid antagonist. Amends the Casualty Insurance, Fidelity Bonds, and Surety Contracts Article of the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that an insurer may not increase the amount of an insured's premium based on the insured's compliance with the amendatory Act. Effective June 1, 2023.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that any person who is sufficiently trained and in good faith (rather than any person who in good faith) administers or provides an opioid antagonist in accordance with the provisions, shall not, as a result of his or her acts or omissions, except willful or wanton misconduct on the part of the person, in administering or providing the opioid antagonist, be liable for civil damages.
