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.

Orders in other than household goods carriers
authority and enforcement proceedings.
(1) Emergency Orders.
The Commission may, on request, and upon a finding that
urgent and immediate public need requires emergency temporary
action, issue orders granting emergency temporary relief in other than
household goods carrier authority or enforcement cases.
The Commission shall promptly post notice of any such request
at a prominent location at the Commission offices in
Springfield and Chicago, and where action affecting a specific
named person is requested shall promptly notify the person by
telephone or telegram. Such orders may be issued without
hearing and shall remain in effect pending notice and hearing
in accordance with subsection (1) of Section 18c-2101 of
this Chapter, but shall not remain in effect for a period
exceeding 45 days from issuance, and shall not be renewed
or extended. Any person in opposition to such relief shall
be entitled, on request, to an oral hearing on the
request for emergency temporary relief. The filing
or granting of such request for oral hearing shall not,
unless the Commission so provides, stay the issuance or
effect of any emergency temporary order under this
(2) Interim Orders.
The Commission may, on request, issue interim orders making
temporary disposition of issues in a proceeding, other than a household
goods carrier authority or enforcement proceeding, after notice
and hearing on written submissions. Such orders shall remain
in effect pending final disposition in accordance with Section
18c-2102 of this Chapter unless otherwise provided
in the interim order or the interim order is modified or
rescinded by the Commission. Any person in opposition to
such relief shall be entitled, on request, to an oral hearing
on the request for temporary relief. The filing or granting
of such a request for oral hearing shall not, unless the
Commission so provides, stay the issuance or effect of any
interim order under this subsection. A request for oral
hearing on a request for temporary relief shall, unless
otherwise specified by the party making the request for oral
hearing, be construed as a request for oral hearing on the
application for permanent relief as well.
(3) Final orders.
Any party to a proceeding before the Commission shall be
entitled, on timely written request, to an oral hearing prior
to issuance of a final order in the proceeding. Where the
Commission has issued an interim order and no timely request
for oral hearing has been filed or is pending, the Commission
may issue a final order without oral hearing, except in household
goods carrier authority proceedings.
(4) Section not applicable to household goods carrier authority
proceedings. Nothing in this Section shall have application to any
household goods carrier authority proceeding.

Prompt Final Disposition of Proceedings.
The Commission shall consider matters properly before it in the
most expeditious manner possible, and in no case shall the final
order resolving matters in a proceeding be entered later than the
90th day following the close of oral hearing.
Proceedings may be reassigned in order to expedite consideration and

Reconsideration, Rehearing and Reopening of
Proceedings. (1) Motions for Rehearing or Reconsideration.
(a) Who May File Motions. Any party of record to an administrative
the Commission may file a motion administratively appealing the action or
inaction of the Commission, Employee Board, or Commission staff.
(b) Relief Which May Be Sought. A motion may request modification or
rescission of a Commission or Employee Board order, or of the action or
inaction of the Commission, Employee Board, or Commission staff; the
Commission or Employee Board may likewise request such relief
(c) To Whom Motions May Be Addressed. If the order appealed is a
nonfinal order of an Employee Board, the motion may be
addressed to the Board or to the Commission; otherwise, the
motion must be addressed to the Commission.
(d) Deadline For Filing Motions. The motion must
be filed within 30 days after service of the order, or of the action or
unless the time for filing a motion is extended by the
Commission in writing.
(e) Style and Contents of Motions. The motion must set forth specific
grounds for modification or rescission of the order. Appeals
from orders issued by the Commission, or from the action or inaction of the Commission
shall be styled "motions
for rehearing;" appeals from orders of an Employee Board, or from the
action or inaction of Employee Board or staff,
shall be styled "motions for reconsideration."
(f) Grant or Denial of Motions. The
Commission may grant or deny such motions, in whole or in
part. If the Commission grants such a motion a new order
shall be issued within 180 days
after service of the order granting the motion unless the
order granting the motion also disposed of the issues in the
proceeding and is therefore a final, appealable order. If
the Commission fails to act on any such motion within
45 days after it is filed, or up to 90
days if the period for acting on the motion has been extended
by the Commission in writing, the motion shall be deemed to
have been denied by operation of law.
(g) Appeals of Rulings by Hearing Examiners. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section, interlocutory appeals of rulings by
hearing examiners shall be as provided by the Commission's Rules of
Practice; no other appeals of action or inaction by a hearing examiner may be taken.
(2) Motions to Reopen. The Commission may, at any time after
notice to the parties and the public, reopen a proceeding to consider
clarification, modification, or rescission of its order.
Reopening may be on the Commission's own motion or on the
motion of any interested person. Upon a finding of clerical
or technical error the Commission may modify or rescind its
order in the proceeding. The Commission may not, on
reopening, impair the vested rights of any person.
