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 63/145

    (225 ILCS 63/145)
    (Text of Section before amendment by P.A. 102-880)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
    Sec. 145. Findings of facts, conclusions of law, and recommendations. At the conclusion of the hearing the hearing officer shall present to the Secretary a written report of its findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations. The report shall contain a finding whether or not the accused person violated this Act or failed to comply with the conditions required in this Act. The hearing officer shall specify the nature of the violation or failure to comply and shall make its recommendations to the Secretary.
    The report of findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations of the hearing officer shall be the basis for the Department's order refusing to issue, restore, or renew a license, or otherwise disciplining a licensee. If the Secretary disagrees in any regard with the report of the hearing officer, the Secretary may issue an order in contravention of the hearing officer's recommendations. The finding is not admissible in evidence against the person in a criminal prosecution brought for the violation of this Act, but the hearing and findings are not a bar to a criminal prosecution brought for the violation of this Act.
    If the Secretary fails to issue a final order within 30 days after the receipt of the hearing officer's findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations, then the hearing officer's findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations shall become a final order of the Department without further review.
