A new law sponsored by Sen. Laura Fine (D-9) that was introduced with the purpose of amending the Authorized Electronic Monitoring in Long-Term Care Facilities Act went into effect on July 26, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill SB109 on Jan. 23, when Sen. Terry Link (D-30) filed it with the Senate clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "amend the Authorized Electronic Monitoring in Long-Term Care Facilities Act".

The Senate passed the bill and it arrived in the House on March 27, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 21. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on July 26. The law went into effect immediately.

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 SB109.
