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.

(from Ch. 111, par. 1116)
Upon the payment of the required fee, an applicant who is a plumber,
registered or licensed in another state, or municipality, may, without examination,
be granted a license as a licensed plumber by the Department provided:
(1) that the applicant is at least twenty-one years
(2) that the Board finds that the requirements for
the registration or licensing of plumbers in such other state or municipality, were, at the date of the registration or license, substantially equal to the requirements then in force in this State, and provided that the same privilege of registration is accorded by said state or municipality, to licensed plumbers in the State of Illinois.
(b) A plumber licensed or registered as a plumber by another state or municipality,
whose license requirements are substantially equal
to the requirements for an Illinois Plumber's license, and such governmental unit,
does not have a reciprocal agreement with the State of Illinois, may apply for and be
issued an Illinois Plumber's license provided that the applicant successfully passes the
Illinois plumber's examination and pays the required fees.
