How long before Illinois takes DNA from those merely accused of DUI?

Given the following story from New York, how long will it take before Illinois DUI law "catches up" and requires DNA samples for those merely accused of offenses such as DUI?

Did you think the Police have to follow rules? Come on! It's a DUI - they can just almost comply

Just step right up and take that breath test. Procedures? What procedures? We don't need no stinking procedures!
That's right ladies and gentlemen, In Illinois DUI arrests, the State can not only require that you be "tested" to see if you have violated DUI law after you are already under arrest, not only can they ignore the scientifically accepted standard of replicate testing, but according to this recent gem of a case, "substantial compliance" (that means just about sort of maybe compliance) is just fine. Way to go!
