 4        Section  5.   The  School  Code  is  amended  by changing
 5    Section 3-14.20 as follows:

 6        (105 ILCS 5/3-14.20) (from Ch. 122, par. 3-14.20)
 7        Sec.  3-14.20.  Building  plans  and  specifications.  To
 8    inspect the building plans and specifications, including  but

11    safety  against  fire  of  public  school rooms and buildings
12    submitted to him by school boards, and to approve  all  those
13    which  comply substantially with the building code authorized
14    in Section 2-3.12. If, within 10 days  after  the  plans  and
15    specifications   have   been   received   by   the   regional
16    superintendent  of  schools and prior to the bidding process,
17    (i) local fire,  building,  or  plumbing  inspectors  in  the
18    municipality, fire district, or county in which the school is
19    being  constructed  or  altered request a review of the plans
20    and specifications or (ii)  the  regional  superintendent  of
21    schools  requests  that  any of these local inspectors review
22    the plans  and  specifications  and  the  municipality,  fire
23    district,  or  county determines that it can accommodate this
24    request, then the school board shall submit  a  copy  of  the
25    plans  and  specifications to the local inspectors. The local
26    inspectors or, on behalf of the local inspectors, a certified
27    plan reviewer and certified inspector shall  comment  on  the
28    plans   and   specifications   based  on  the  building  code
29    authorized in Section 2-3.12  and  respond  to  the  regional
30    superintendent  of  schools  within  15 business days after a
31    copy of the plans and specifications has been received by the

 2    inspector"  mean an individual who has been certified as such
 3    by a national model code organization  or  equivalent  agency
 4    approved  by  the  Capital  Development  Board.  If the local
 5    inspectors or certified inspector wish to inspect the  actual
 6    school  construction  or  alteration, the local inspectors or
 7    certified inspector must set up an  initial  pre-construction
 8    meeting   with   the   regional  superintendent  of  schools,
 9    outlining the inspection schedule and  construction  reviews.
10    The  regional superintendent of schools shall then notify the
11    school district. The local inspectors or certified  inspector
12    shall  respond to the regional superintendent of schools with
13    any comments at  the  completion  of  each  inspection.  With
14    respect  to  the  provisions  of  this Section concerning the
15    review of the plans and specifications and the inspection  of
16    the  actual school construction or alteration, in the case of
17    Cook County, references to  the  regional  superintendent  of
18    schools  shall be deemed to refer to the intermediate service
19    center for  the  school  district.  If  the  such  plans  and
20    specifications  are  not  approved  or denied approval by the
21    regional superintendent of schools within 3 months after  the
22    date  on  which  they are submitted to him or her, the school
23    board may submit such plans and  specifications  directly  to
24    the State Superintendent of Education for approval or denial.
