Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(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.

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
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.
