   235 ILCS 5/6-16.2                                                           
   235 ILCS 5/6-20           from Ch. 43, par. 134a

        Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934.  Provides that no  express      
   company,   common   carrier,  or  contract  carrier  that  carries  or      
   transports alcoholic liquor for delivery in Illinois  shall  knowingly      
   deliver to a retail address any shipping container that is not clearly      
   labeled   (now  shipping  container  clearly  labeled)  as  containing      
   alcoholic liquor and labeled as requiring signature of an adult who is      
   at least 21 years of age.  Makes changes concerning  what  constitutes      
   adequate  written evidence of age and identity. Provides that a person      
   who does not take reasonably  necessary  steps  to  determine  whether      
   written  evidence  of  age  is  false  or  fraudulent does not have an      
   affirmative  defense   in  a  criminal  prosecution  for  delivery  of      
   alcoholic liquor to a person who is not at  least  21  years  of  age.      
   Authorizes  retail  licensees  to  hang, in plain view, a sign stating      
   that patrons must be at least 21 years of age and  that  the  licensee      
   may  require  certain  patrons  to prepare and sign declaration of age      
   forms.  Removes the provision that a person under the age  of  21  who      
   represents  that  he  is  21  years  of age for the purpose of buying,      
   accepting, or receiving alcoholic liquor from a licensee is guilty  of      
   a Class A misdemeanor.
