    AN ACT concerning regulation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Speech-Language Pathology and
Audiology Practice Act is amended by changing Section 8.1 as
    (225 ILCS 110/8.1)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2008)
    Sec. 8.1. Temporary license. On and after July 1, 2005, a
person who has met the requirements of items (a) through (e) of
Section 8 and intends to undertake supervised professional
experience as a speech-language pathologist, as required by
subsection (f) of Section 8 and the rules adopted by the
Department, must first obtain a temporary license from the
Department. A temporary license may be issued by the Department
only to an applicant pursuing licensure as a speech-language
pathologist in this State. A temporary license shall be issued
to an applicant upon receipt of the required fee as set forth
by rule and documentation on forms prescribed by the Department
certifying that his or her professional experience will be
supervised by a licensed speech-language pathologist. A
temporary license shall be issued for a period of 12 months and
may be renewed only once for good cause shown.
    A person who has completed the course and clinical
curriculum required to receive a master's degree in
speech-language pathology, as minimally required under
subsection (d) of Section 8 of this Act for a license to
practice speech-language pathology, but who has not yet been
conferred the master's degree, may make application to the
Department for a temporary license under this Section and may
begin his or her supervised professional experience as a
speech-language pathologist without a temporary license for
120 days from the date of application or until disposition of
the license application by the Department, whichever is sooner.
