Synopsis As Introduced
In the Regulatory Sunset Act, changes the repeal date for the Illinois Architecture Practice Act of 1989 from January 1, 2010 to January 1, 2020. Amends the Illinois Architecture Practice Act of 1989. Removes the provision concerning the invalidity of a building permit issued with respect to technical submissions that do not conform to the requirements of the Act. Provides that it is unlawful to affix one's seal to technical submissions if it masks the true identity of the person who actually exercised responsible control of the preparation of such work (rather than prohibiting a person from deviating from the technical submissions without the prior approval of the licensed architect for a project). Makes changes to provisions concerning the powers and duties of the Department and the Board. Removes a provision creating a complaint committee. Provides that the Department is not required to issue any certificate, credential, or other official document indicating a person has been granted the title "Architect, Retired". Makes changes to provisions concerning disciplinary grounds and investigations. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
House Committee Amendment No. 1
Moves a provision concerning the filing or approval of technical submissions to another Section. Provides that no officer, board, commission, or other public entity who receives technical submissions shall accept for filing or approval any technical submissions relating to services requiring the involvement of an architect that do not bear the seal and signature of an architect licensed under this Act (now, "No officer, board, commission, or other public entity charged with the enforcement of codes and ordinances requiring the involvement of an architect shall accept for filing or approval any technical submissions that do not bear the seal and signature of an architect licensed under this Act.").
