Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

    (a) No license may be denied or revoked unless the applicant or licensee is given written notice of the grounds for the Department's action.

Notice of the time, place, and nature of the hearing shall be given to the applicant or licensee not less than 2 weeks before the date of the hearing. The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. The Director may appoint a hearing officer to preside at any administrative hearing under this Act.
    (b) If the applicant or licensee does not submit a request for hearing as provided for in this Section, or if after conducting the hearing the Department determines that the license should not be issued or that the license should be revoked or denied, the Department shall issue an order to that effect. If the order is to revoke the license, it shall specify that the order takes effect upon receipt by the licensee and that the Supportive Residence shall not operate during the pendency of any proceeding for judicial review of the Department's decision, except under court order.
    (c) Final administrative decisions shall be subject to judicial review exclusively as provided in the Administrative Review Law, except that any petition for judicial review of Department action under this Act shall be filed within 15 days after receipt of notice of the final agency determination. The term "administrative decision" has the meaning ascribed to it in Section 3-101 of the Administrative Review Law. The court may stay enforcement of the Department's final decision if a showing is made that there is a substantial probability that the party seeking review will prevail on the merits and will suffer irreparable harm if the stay is not granted, and that the facility will meet the requirements of this Act and its rules and regulations during such stay.
    (d) The Director or hearing officer may compel by subpoena or subpoena duces tecum the attendance and testimony of witnesses and the production of books and papers, and administer oaths to witnesses. All subpoenas issued by the Director or hearing officer may be served as provided for in civil actions.

If the subpoena is issued at the request of the Department or by a person proceeding in forma pauperis, the witness fee shall be paid by the Department as an administrative expense.
    (e) The Department may charge any party to a hearing or other person requesting copies of records or other documents for a hearing the actual cost of reproducing those records or other documents.

Any such action by the Department shall be included in the evidence presented at the hearing. At the time of this action, the Department shall begin license revocation proceedings and the licensee shall retain the right to a hearing as described in Section 55.
