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.

20 ILCS 3945/2

    (20 ILCS 3945/2) (from Ch. 144, par. 2002)
    Sec. 2. There is created the Geriatric Medicine Assistance Commission. The Commission shall receive and approve applications for grants from schools, recognized by the Department of Professional Regulation as being authorized to confer doctor of medicine, doctor of osteopathy, doctor of chiropractic or registered professional nursing degrees in the State, to help finance the establishment of geriatric medicine programs within such schools. In determining eligibility for grants, the Commission shall give preference to those programs which exhibit the greatest potential for directly benefiting the largest number of elderly citizens in the State. The Commission may not approve the application of any institution which is unable to demonstrate its current financial stability and reasonable prospects for future stability. No institution which fails to possess and maintain an open policy with respect to race, creed, color and sex as to admission of students, appointment of faculty and employment of staff shall be eligible for grants under this Act. The Commission shall establish such rules and standards as it deems necessary for the implementation of this Act.
    The Commission shall be composed of 8 members selected as follows: 2 physicians licensed to practice under the Medical Practice Act of 1987 and specializing in geriatric medicine; a registered professional nurse licensed under the Nurse Practice Act and specializing in geriatric health care; 2 representatives of organizations interested in geriatric medicine or the care of the elderly; and 3 individuals 60 or older who are interested in geriatric health care or the care of the elderly. The members of the Commission shall be selected by the Governor from a list of recommendations submitted to him by organizations concerned with geriatric medicine or the care of the elderly.
    The terms of the members of the Commission shall be 4 years, except that of the members initially appointed, 2 shall be designated to serve until January 1, 1986, 3 until January 1, 1988, and 2 until January 1, 1990. Members of the Commission shall receive no compensation, but shall be reimbursed for actual expenses incurred in carrying out their duties.
