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.

    Sec. 25. License requirement. No person may establish, operate, maintain, or offer an establishment as an assisted living establishment or shared housing establishment as defined by the Act within this State unless and until he or she obtains a valid license, which remains unsuspended, unrevoked, and unexpired. No public official, agent, or employee may place any person in, or recommend that any person be placed in, or directly or indirectly cause any person to be placed in any establishment that meets the definition under this Act that is being operated without a valid license. No public official, agent, or employee may place the name of an unlicensed establishment that is required to be licensed under this Act on a list of programs. An entity that operates as an assisted living or shared housing establishment as defined by this Act without a license shall be subject to the provisions, including penalties, of the Nursing Home Care Act. No entity shall use in its name or advertise "assisted living" unless licensed as an assisted living establishment under this Act or as a shelter care facility under the Nursing Home Care Act that also meets the definition of an assisted living establishment under this Act, except a shared housing establishment licensed under this Act may advertise assisted living services.
