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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Health Care Worker Registry working group.
(a) The Office of the Governor shall establish a working group regarding the activities under this Act, with the following goals:
(1) to evaluate and monitor the success of health
care waivers under Section 40 in creating job opportunity for people with criminal records; and
(2) to identify and recommend changes to the waiver
application and implementation process to reduce barriers for applicants or employees.
In order to ensure that the working group is fully informed, the Department of Public Health and the Governor's Office shall provide the working group with any relevant aggregate data currently available that is related to the waiver process and its effectiveness. The working group shall identify any gaps in information currently collected that would inform the working group's efforts and make recommendations to the Governor's Office and the General Assembly about what additional data should be collected to evaluate and monitor the success of the waiver process by July 1, 2017.
(b) The working group shall be comprised of representatives from advocacy and community-based organizations, individuals directly impacted by the waiver process, industry representatives, members of the General Assembly, and representatives from the Department of Public Health and the Office of the Governor. The working group shall meet at least 2 times each year.
