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.

        (1) order the discontinuance of such violation;
        (2) suspend or revoke a license or registration
    
issued by the Department of Nuclear Safety or its successor agency, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency;

such violation, provided each day the violation continues shall constitute a separate offense;
        (4) order the decontamination of any property or

    Any such actions by the Agency shall be based on standards and procedures established by rules of the Agency. Under such rules, the Agency may provide that all or a portion of the cost of such actions be assessed to operators of radiation installations or other persons responsible for the violation or contamination.
    The civil penalties and costs assessed under this Section shall be recoverable in an action brought in the name of the people of the State of Illinois by the Attorney General.
    In any order issued to an offending party under this Section, the Agency shall include a summary of its findings which give evidence of the violation. Any party affected by an order of the Department of Nuclear Safety or its successor agency, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, shall have the right to a hearing before the Agency; however, a written request for such a hearing shall be served on the Agency within 10 days of notice of such order. In the absence of receipt of a request for hearing the affected party shall be deemed to have waived his right to a hearing.
    No order of the Agency issued under this Section, except an order issued pursuant to Section 38 herein, shall take effect until the Agency shall find upon conclusion of such hearing that a condition exists which constitutes a violation of any provision of this Act or any code, rule or regulation promulgated under this Act except in the event that the right to public hearing is waived as provided herein in which case the order shall take effect immediately.

    Sec. 45. Subpoena power; confidentiality; witness fees; enforcement; punishment.
    (a) The Agency, by its Assistant Director or a person designated by the Assistant Director, may, at the Assistant Director's instance or on the written request of another party to an administrative proceeding or investigation administered under this Act or under any other Act administered by the Agency as the successor agency to the Department of Nuclear Safety, subpoena witnesses to attend and give testimony before the hearing officer designated to preside over the proceeding or investigation and subpoena the production of books, papers, or records that the Assistant Director or a person designated by the Assistant Director deems relevant or material to any such administrative proceeding or investigation.
    (b) Any patient records disclosed pursuant to a properly issued subpoena shall remain confidential and exempt from inspection and copying under the Freedom of Information Act and protected from disclosure under the provisions of Part 21 of Article VIII of the Code of Civil Procedure, with the exception that such patient records shall be admissible in any administrative proceeding before the Agency when necessary to substantiate violations of this Act or any other Act administered by the Agency as the successor agency to the Department of Nuclear Safety and rules thereunder. Prior to admission of such records into evidence or their being made a part of any contested case file, all information indicating the identity of the patient shall be removed and deleted.
    (c) The fees of witnesses for attendance and travel shall be the same as the fees for witnesses before the circuit court of this State. Those fees shall be paid when the witness is excused from further attendance. When a witness is subpoenaed at the instance of the Agency, those fees shall be paid in the same manner as other administrative expenses of the Agency. When a witness is subpoenaed at the instance of a party to a proceeding other than the Agency, the Agency may require that the cost of service of the subpoena or subpoena duces tecum and the fee of the witness be borne by the party at whose instance the witness is summoned. In such a case, the Agency, in its discretion, may require a deposit to cover the cost of the service and witness fees. A subpoena or subpoena duces tecum issued under this Section may be served in the same manner as a subpoena issued out of a circuit court or may be served by United States registered or certified mail, addressed to the person concerned at the person's last known address, and proof of that mailing shall be sufficient for the purposes of this Section.
    (d) Any person who, without lawful authority, fails to appear in response to a subpoena or to answer any question or to produce any books, papers, records, or any other documents relevant or material to such administrative proceeding or investigation is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Each violation shall constitute a separate and distinct offense. In addition to initiating criminal proceedings, the Agency, through the Attorney General, may seek enforcement of any such subpoena by any circuit court of this State.
