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 115/8.1

    (225 ILCS 115/8.1) (from Ch. 111, par. 7008.1)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
    Sec. 8.1. Certified veterinary technician. A person who is a certified veterinary technician who performs veterinary technology contrary to this Act is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor and shall be subject to the revocation of his or her certificate. However, these penalties and restrictions shall not apply to a student while performing activities required as a part of his or her training.
    The Department and the Board are authorized to hold hearings, reprimand, suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew a certificate and to perform any other acts that may be necessary to regulate certified veterinary technicians in a manner consistent with the provisions of the Act applicable to veterinarians.
    The title "Certified veterinary technician" and the initials "CVT" may only be used by persons certified by the Department. A person who uses these titles without the certification as provided in this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    Certified veterinary technicians shall be required to complete continuing education as prescribed by rule to renew their certification.
