Bill summary

House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows. 

Expands the scope of the proposed requirements for attendance at sporting events at qualifying schools to make the requirements also applicable to graduation or commencement ceremonies and other outdoor activities including but not limited to drama performances, club events, and speaker series. Modifies attendance requirements to now set a permitted occupancy range for each facility with a capacity stated on the facility's certificate of occupancy in accordance with the State Building Code, limiting spectators to no less than 30% (was 25%) and no more than 50% capacity. Adds criteria for facilities that do not have an occupancy capacity under the State Building Code, requiring no more than 14 spectators for every 1,000 square feet. Requires qualifying schools to comply with Interim Guidance for Administrators and Participants of Youth and Amateur Sports Programs, as it existed on February 26, 2021 (was January 28, 2021) so long as the requirements do not conflict with the act. Makes conforming changes to the definition given for spectators to exclude graduating students at graduation or commencement ceremonies, and additionally excludes a member of the immediate household of an athlete or graduating student from the term. Now makes the act applicable at any time when the occupancy capacity of indoor or outdoor gatherings is limited to less than 50% by an executive order, secretarial order, or emergency directive and related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes the act's expiration, now setting the act to expire on December 31, 2021 (was, the earlier of December 31, 2021, or the date the Governor issues an executive order rescinding Executive Order No. 116 (2020), or lifts restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings related to the COVID-19 pandemic). 

Changes the act's long title.
