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.

    The Council shall meet at least 4 times per year at times and places designated by the Chairperson upon 10 days written notice to the members. Special meetings may be called by the Chairperson or 7 members of the Council upon 7 days written notice to the other members. Nine members shall constitute a quorum.

    The Council shall prepare and submit to the vocational rehabilitation administrator the reports and findings that the vocational rehabilitation administrator may request or that the Council deems fit. The Council shall select jointly with the vocational rehabilitation administrator a pool of qualified persons to serve as impartial hearing officers. The Council shall, with the vocational rehabilitation unit in the Department, jointly develop, agree to, and review annually State goals and priorities and jointly submit annual reports of progress to the federal Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration.
    To the extent that there is a disagreement between the Council and the unit within the Department of Human Services responsible for the administration of the vocational rehabilitation program, regarding the resources necessary to carry out the functions of the Council as set forth in this Section, the disagreement shall be resolved by the Governor.

    Sec. 5-565. In the Department of Public Health.
    (a) The General Assembly declares it to be the public policy of this State that all citizens of Illinois are entitled to lead healthy lives. Governmental public health has a specific responsibility to ensure that a public health system is in place to allow the public health mission to be achieved. The public health system is the collection of public, private, and voluntary entities as well as individuals and informal associations that contribute to the public's health within the State.

The State Board of Health is to assume the leadership role in advising the Director in meeting the following functions:
        (1) Needs assessment.
        (2) Statewide health objectives.
        (3) Policy development.

public understanding and support of the Department's programs.

        (9) To review the final draft of all proposed
    
administrative rules, other than emergency or preemptory rules and those rules that another advisory body must approve or review within a statutorily defined time period, of the Department after September 19, 1991 (the effective date of Public Act 87-633).
