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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 111, par. 6621)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2030)
Injunction; cease and desist order.
(a) If any person or entity violates a provision of this Act, the
Secretary may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, through
the Attorney General of the State of Illinois, petition for an order
enjoining such violation or for an order enforcing compliance with this
Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition in such court, the court may
issue a temporary restraining order, without notice or bond, and may
preliminarily and permanently enjoin such violation. If it is established
that such person has violated or is violating the injunction, the court may
punish the offender for contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section
are in addition to, and not in lieu of, all other remedies and penalties
provided by this Act.
(b) If any person practices as a licensed structural engineer or holds
himself out as a structural engineer without being licensed under the
provisions of this Act, then any licensed structural engineer, any
interested party or any person injured thereby may file a complaint with the Department that shall proceed through the process outlined in Section 22 of this Act.
(c) Whenever in the opinion of the Department any person or entity violates any
provision of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an
order to cease and desist should not be entered against that person or entity. The
rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and
shall provide a period of 7 days from the date of the rule to file an
answer to the satisfaction of the Department. Failure to answer to the
satisfaction of the Department shall cause an order to cease and desist to
be issued immediately.
