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.

15 ILCS 305/30

    (15 ILCS 305/30)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2022)
    Sec. 30. Emergency powers.
    (a) In response to the ongoing public health disaster caused by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), a novel severe acute respiratory illness that spreads rapidly through respiratory transmissions, and the need to regulate the number of individuals entering a Secretary of State facility at any one time in order to prevent the spread of the disease, the Secretary of State is hereby given the authority to adopt emergency rulemakings, as provided under subsection (b), and to adopt permanent administrative rules extending until no later than June 30, 2021, the expiration dates of driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, identification cards, disabled parking placards and decals, and vehicle registrations that were issued with expiration dates on or after January 1, 2020. If, as of May 1, 2021, there remains in effect a proclamation issued by the Governor of the State of Illinois declaring a statewide disaster in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Secretary may further extend such expiration dates until no later than December 31, 2021.
    (a-5) During the period of any extensions implemented pursuant to this Section, all driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, identification cards, disabled parking placards and decals, and vehicle registrations shall be subject to any terms and conditions under which the original document was issued.
    (b) To provide for the expeditious and timely implementation of this amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly, any emergency rules to implement the extension provisions of this Section must be adopted by the Secretary of State, subject to the provisions of Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. Any such rule shall:
        (1) (blank);
        (2) set forth the expirations being extended (for
    
example, "this extension shall apply to all driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, identification cards, disabled parking placards and decals, and vehicle registrations expiring on [date] through [date]"); and
        (3) set forth the date on which the extension period
    
becomes effective, and the date on which the extension will terminate if not extended by subsequent emergency rulemaking.
    (c) Where the renewal of any driver's license, driving permit, monitoring device driving permit, restricted driving permit, identification card, disabled parking placard or decal, or vehicle registration has been extended pursuant to this Section, it shall be renewed during the period of an extension. Any such renewal shall be from the original expiration date and shall be subject to the full fee which would have been due had the renewal been issued based on the original expiration date, except that no late filing fees or penalties shall be imposed.
    (d) All law enforcement agencies in the State of Illinois and all State and local governmental entities shall recognize the validity of, and give full legal force to, extensions granted pursuant to this Section.
    (e) Upon the request of any person or entity whose driver's license, driving permit, monitoring device driving permit, restricted driving permit, identification card, disabled parking placard or decal, or vehicle registration has been subject to an extension under this Section, the Secretary shall issue a statement verifying the extension was issued pursuant to Illinois law, and requesting any foreign jurisdiction to honor the extension.
    (f) This Section is repealed on January 1, 2022.
