Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill as introduced. Amends the Illinois Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Practice Act. Replaces "Department of Professional Regulation" with "Department of Financial and Professional Regulation" and "Director of the Department of Professional Regulation" with "Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation" throughout the Act. Makes changes in provisions concerning the Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the requirement of licensure, qualifications for licensure, the roster of licensees, expiration, renewal, and restoration of licenses, licensing of applicants from other states, refusal, revocation, or suspension of licenses, and administrative procedure. Adds provisions concerning rehearings ordered by the Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and by the Secretary and certifications of the record and costs. Makes other changes. Repeals a Section concerning confidential information and disclosure. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
Provides that a licensee requesting restoration from inactive status shall be required to demonstrate that he or she has completed a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education and met any additional continuing education requirements established by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation by rule (rather than demonstrate that he or she has completed continuing education as established by rule).

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that an applicant for a license to practice audiology shall present satisfactory evidence of having received a master's or doctoral degree in audiology from a program approved by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, but that an applicant whose degree was conferred on or after January 1, 2008, must present satisfactory evidence of having received a doctoral degree in audiology from a program approved by the Department (instead of providing that when applying for an initial license as an audiologist prior to January 1, 2008, an applicant must present satisfactory evidence of receiving a master's or doctoral degree in audiology from an approved program and that if applying for initial licensure on or after January 1, 2008, an applicant must present satisfactory evidence of a doctoral degree in audiology from an approved program).
