   be  submitted  by  persons  convicted  or  found  guilty of an offense      
   classified as a felony under Illinois law or  found  guilty  or  given      
   supervision  for such an offense under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987.      
   Requires a person incarcerated in a Department of Corrections facility

        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Deletes everything. Reinstates provisions of the bill as amended       
   with these exceptions: Provides that the genetic marker grouping            
   analysis information shall be used only for valid law enforcement           
   identification  purposes  and  as  required  by  the Federal Bureau of      
   Investigation  for  participation  in  the  National   DNA   database.      
   Provides  for  expungement  of  DNA  information  upon  receipt  of  a      
   notification of reversal of conviction based on actual innocence or of      
   the  granting  of a pardon if that pardon document specifically states      
   that the  reason  for  the  pardon  is  the  actual  innocence  of  an      
   individual  whose  DNA record has been stored in the State or national      
   DNA identification index.  Provides that disclosure of DNA information      
   in violation of Illinois law is a Class 4 felony with a  minimum  fine      
   of $5,000.  Provides that a person subject to DNA analysis shall pay a      
   fee  of $200 instead of $500. Provides that if the analysis fee is not      
   paid at the time of  sentencing,  the  court  shall  establish  a  fee      
   schedule  for  the payment of the entire analysis fee not to exceed 24      
   months from the time of conviction.  Provides that the failure to  pay      
   the  analysis  fee  shall  not  be  the sole ground to incarcerate the      
   person.  Effective immediately.                                             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Provides that the requirement of  the  defendant  to  submit  DNA      
   samples  to  the  Department of State Police for felony violations not      
   otherwise specified applies only to those  felonies  committed  on  or      
   after the effective date of the amendatory Act.  Provides that genetic      
   marker   grouping  analysis  information  obtained  may  be  used  for      
   technology validation  purposes.   Restores  provision  requiring  the      
   submission of DNA samples to the Department of State Police of persons      
   convicted of criminal sexual abuse.
