Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

GENERAL PROVISIONS
(5 ILCS 80/) Regulatory Sunset Act.

5 ILCS 80/1

    (5 ILCS 80/1) (from Ch. 127, par. 1901)
    Sec. 1. This Act shall be known and may be cited as the Regulatory Sunset Act.
(Source: P.A. 90-580, eff. 5-21-98.)

5 ILCS 80/2

    (5 ILCS 80/2) (from Ch. 127, par. 1902)
    (Text of Section before amendment by P.A. 102-984)
    Sec. 2. Findings and intent.
    (a) The General Assembly finds that State government actions have produced a substantial increase in numbers of agencies, growth of programs and proliferation of rules and regulations and that the whole process developed without sufficient legislative oversight, regulatory accountability or a system of checks and balances. The General Assembly further finds that by establishing a system for the termination or continuation of such agencies and programs, it will be in a better position to evaluate the need for the continued existence of present and future regulatory bodies.
    (b) It is the intent of the General Assembly:
        (1) That no profession, occupation, business,
    
industry or trade shall be subject to the State's regulatory power unless the exercise of such power is necessary to protect the public health, safety or welfare from significant and discernible harm or damage. The exercise of the State's police power shall be done only to the extent necessary for that purpose.
        (2) That the State shall not regulate a profession,
    
occupation, industry, business or trade in a manner which will unreasonably and adversely affect the competitive market.
        (3) To provide systematic legislative review of the
    
need for, and public benefits derived from, a program or function that licenses or otherwise regulates the initial entry into a profession, occupation, business, industry or trade by a periodic review and termination, modification, or continuation of those programs and functions.

        (13) equity concerns arising from the personal
    
qualifications, including:

significantly harm or endanger the public health, safety or welfare;

or indirectly increasing the costs of any goods or services involved, and if so, to what degree;
        (5) whether the increase in cost is more harmful to
    
the public than the harm which could result from the absence of regulation; and

    (Text of Section after amendment by P.A. 102-984)
    Sec. 7. Additional criteria.
    (a) In determining whether to recommend to the General Assembly under Section 5 the continuation of a regulatory agency or program or any function thereof, the Governor shall also consider the following criteria:
        (1) whether the absence or modification of regulation
    
would significantly harm or endanger the public health, safety or welfare;
        (2) whether there is a reasonable relationship
    
between the exercise of the State's police power and the protection of the public health, safety or welfare;
        (3) whether there is another less restrictive method
    
of regulation available which could adequately protect the public;
        (4) whether the regulation has the effect of directly
    
or indirectly increasing the costs of any goods or services involved, and if so, to what degree;

        (6) whether all facets of the regulatory process are
    
designed solely for the purpose of, and have as their primary effect, the protection of the public.
    (b) In making an evaluation or recommendation with respect to paragraph (3) of subsection (a), the Governor shall follow the following guidelines to address the following:
        (1) Contractual disputes, including pricing
    
disputes. The Governor may recommend enacting a specific civil cause of action in small-claims court or district court to remedy consumer harm. This cause of action may provide for reimbursement of the attorney's fees or court costs, if a consumer's claim is successful.
        (2) Fraud. The Governor may recommend
    
strengthening powers under the State's deceptive trade practices acts or requiring disclosures that will reduce misleading attributes of the specific good or service.
        (3) General health and safety risks. The Governor
    
may recommend enacting a regulation on the related process or requiring a facility license.
        (4) Unclean facilities. The Governor may recommend
    
requiring periodic facility inspections.
        (5) A provider's failure to complete a contract
    
fully or to standards. The Governor may recommend requiring the provider to be bonded.
        (6) A lack of protection for a person who is not a
    
party to a contract between providers and consumers. The Governor may recommend requiring that the provider have insurance.
        (7) Transactions with transient, out-of-state, or
    
fly-by-night providers. The Governor may recommend requiring the provider register its business with the Secretary of State.
        (8) A shortfall or imbalance in the consumer's
    
knowledge about the good or service relative to the provider's knowledge (asymmetrical information). The Governor may recommend enacting government certification.
        (9) An inability to qualify providers of new or
    
highly specialized medical services for reimbursement by the State. The Governor may recommend enacting a specialty certification solely for medical reimbursement.
        (10) A systematic information shortfall in which a
    
reasonable consumer of the service is permanently unable to distinguish between the quality of providers and there is an absence of institutions that provide guidance to consumers. The Governor may recommend enacting an occupational license.
        (11) The need to address multiple types of harm.
    
The Governor may recommend a combination of regulations. This may include a government regulation combined with a private remedy, including third-party or consumer-created ratings and reviews or private certification.
