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.

225 ILCS 10/11

    (225 ILCS 10/11) (from Ch. 23, par. 2221)
    Sec. 11. Whenever the Department is advised, or has reason to believe, that any person, group of persons or corporation is operating a child welfare agency or a child care facility without a license or permit, it shall make an investigation to ascertain the facts. If the Department is denied access, it shall request intervention of local, county or State law enforcement agencies to seek an appropriate court order or warrant to examine the premises. A person or entity preventing the Department from carrying out its duties under this Section shall be guilty of a violation of this Act and shall be subject to such penalties related thereto. If it finds that the child welfare agency or child care facility is being, or has been operated without a license or permit, it shall report the results of its investigation to the Attorney General, and to the appropriate State's Attorney for investigation and, if appropriate, prosecution.
    Operating a child welfare agency or child care facility without a license constitutes a Class A misdemeanor, followed by a business offense, if the operator continues to operate the facility and no effort is made to obtain a license. The business offense fine shall not exceed $10,000 and each day of a violation is a separate offense.
