The bill defines "radiological agent" and provides that the possession, with the intent to injure another, of an infectious biological substance or radiological agent capable of causing death or serious bodily injury is a Class 5 felony. A person who manufactures, sells, gives, distributes or uses an infectious biological substance or radiological agent with the intent to injure another is guilty of a Class 4 felony.

The bill adds search and rescue and emergency medical services personnel to the section that provides enhanced penalties for malicious bodily injury to law-enforcement officers and firefighters. The bill allows the Attorney General to prosecute money laundering with the concurrence of the attorney for the Commonwealth of the locality.
