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.

    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 35. Respiratory Care Board.
    (a) The Secretary shall appoint a Respiratory Care Board which shall serve in an advisory capacity to the Secretary. The Board shall consist of 7 persons of which 4 members shall be currently engaged in the practice of respiratory care with a minimum of 3 years practice in the State of Illinois, one member shall be a qualified medical director, and 2 members shall be hospital administrators.
    (b) Members shall be appointed to a 4-year term. A member whose term has expired shall continue to serve until his or her successor is appointed and qualified. No member shall be reappointed to the Board for a term that would cause his or her continuous service on the Board to be longer than 10 years. Appointments to fill vacancies shall be made in the same manner as original appointments for the unexpired portion of the vacated term.
    (c) The membership of the Board shall reasonably represent all the geographic areas in this State. The Secretary shall consider the recommendations of the organization representing the largest number of respiratory care practitioners for appointment of the respiratory care practitioner members of the Board and the organization representing the largest number of physicians licensed to practice medicine in all its branches for the appointment of the medical director to the Board.
    (d) The Secretary has the authority to remove any member of the Board for cause at any time before the expiration of his or her term. The Secretary shall be the sole arbiter of cause.
    (e) The Secretary shall consider the recommendations of the Board on questions involving standards of professional conduct, discipline, and qualifications of candidates for licensure under this Act.
    (f) The members of the Board shall be reimbursed for all legitimate and necessary expenses incurred in attending meetings of the Board.
    (g) Four members of the Board shall constitute a quorum. A vacancy in the membership of the Board shall not impair the right of a quorum to exercise all of the rights and perform all of the duties of the Board.
    (h) Members of the Board shall be immune from suit in any action based upon any disciplinary proceedings or other activities performed as members of the Board, except for willful and wanton misconduct.
