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.

210 ILCS 49/1-101.5

    (210 ILCS 49/1-101.5)
    Sec. 1-101.5. Prior law.
    (a) This Act provides for licensure of long term care facilities that are federally designated as institutions for the mentally diseased on the effective date of this Act and specialize in providing services to individuals with a serious mental illness. On and after the effective date of this Act, these facilities shall be governed by this Act instead of the Nursing Home Care Act. The existence of a current or pending administrative hearing, notice of violation, or other enforcement action, except for a pending notice of revocation, authorized under the Nursing Home Care Act shall not be a barrier to the provisional licensure of a facility under this Act. Provisional licensure under this Act shall not relieve a facility from the responsibility for the payment of any past, current, or future fines or penalties, or for any other enforcement remedy, imposed upon the facility under the Nursing Home Care Act.
    (b) All consent decrees that apply to facilities federally designated as institutions for the mentally diseased shall continue to apply to facilities licensed under this Act.
    (c) A facility licensed under this Act may voluntarily close, and the facility may reopen in an underserved region of the State, if the facility receives a certificate of need from the Health Facilities and Services Review Board. At no time shall the total number of licensed beds under this Act exceed the total number of licensed beds existing on July 22, 2013 (the effective date of Public Act 98-104).
