Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that unless the action is governed by the procedures or provisions of another statute, a person suffering legal wrong because of a final administrative decision, or adversely affected or aggrieved by a final administrative decision, is entitled to judicial review of the final administrative decision to the same extent, with the same rights and the same responsibilities, as a person who is a party, except that a person seeking judicial review is not entitled to relief if there was a previous public hearing at which the person failed to present his or her position. Provides that to the extent necessary, such a person may provide new or additional evidence to the court for the limited purpose of demonstrating the legal wrong or adverse effect or impairment that he or she has experienced or may experience as a result of the final administrative decision. Provides that the right to judicial review under the new provisions is limited to final administrative permitting decisions made by the Department of Agriculture, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Natural Resources, Department of Public Health, or Department of Transportation that impact the public trust in the waters and lands of this State, State parks or natural areas, threatened or endangered species, surface or ground water quality, air quality, or other matters affecting the right to a healthful environment under the Illinois Constitution. Makes a corresponding change in a Section concerning scope of review. Effective immediately.
