Provides that individuals licensed pursuant to the following Acts who have been actively licensed for 10 or more consecutive years with no prior disciplinary action or pending disciplinary proceedings shall be deemed compliant with continuing education requirements upon completion of half the number of hours required by the individual licensing Act or administrative rule: the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Act of 1985; the Electrologist Licensing Act; the Environmental Health Practitioner Licensing Act; the Funeral Directors and Embalmers Licensing Code; the Illinois Landscape Architecture Act of 1989; the Illinois Professional Land Surveyor Act of 1989; and the Illinois Certified Shorthand Reporters Act of 1984.

Specifies that if an electronic recording is used by the Department, the electronic recording shall serve as the official record of the proceeding and may not be transcribed unless requested and paid for by the party requesting transcription, except as otherwise provided by law. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
