Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

225 ILCS 106/65

    (225 ILCS 106/65)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 65. Licenses; renewal; restoration; inactive status.
    (a) The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. The licensee may renew a license during the 30 day period preceding its expiration date by paying the required fee and demonstrating compliance with any continuing education requirements.
    (b) A person who has permitted a license to expire or who has a license on inactive status may have it restored by submitting an application to the Department and filing proof of fitness, as defined by rule, to have the license restored, including, if appropriate, evidence that is satisfactory to the Department certifying the active practice of respiratory care in another jurisdiction and by paying the required fee.
    A person practicing on an expired license is considered to be practicing without a license.
    (c) If the person has not maintained an active practice that is satisfactory to the Department in another jurisdiction, the Department shall determine the person's fitness to resume active status. The Department may require the person to complete a specified period of evaluated respiratory care and may require successful completion of an examination.
    (d) A person whose license expired while he or she was (1) in federal service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States or called into service or training with the State Militia, or (2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States government preliminary to induction into military service may have his or her license restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if, within 2 years after the termination of his or her service, training, or education, except under conditions other than honorable, the Department is furnished with satisfactory evidence that the person has been so engaged and that the service, training, or education has been terminated.
    (e) A license to practice shall not be denied any applicant because of the applicant's race, religion, creed, national origin, political beliefs, or activities, age, sex, sexual orientation, or physical impairment.
