A new law sponsored by Sen. Laura Fine (D-9) that was introduced with the purpose of creating the Seizure Smart School Act will go into effect on July 1, 2020, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill HB1475 on Jan. 29, when Rep. Terri Bryant (R-115) filed it with the House clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "create the Seizure Smart School Act".

After debate, the House passed the bill and it arrived in the Senate on April 10, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 16. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on July 12. The law is scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2020.

Illinois legislature enacts laws through bills that can be introduced in either the state House of Representatives or the state Senate. Either chamber of the legislature can reject or amend a bill before it becomes law. Legislators sometimes sponsor "shell bills" devoid of substantive provisions, introduced with the intention of being amended later to include actual legislation.

The following table shows the full history of actions on HB1475.
