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.

305 ILCS 5/12-13

    (305 ILCS 5/12-13) (from Ch. 23, par. 12-13)
    Sec. 12-13. Rules and regulations. The Department shall make all rules and regulations and take such action as may be necessary or desirable for carrying out the provisions of this Code, to the end that its spirit and purpose may be achieved and the public aid programs administered efficiently throughout the State. However, the rules and regulations shall not provide that payment for services rendered to a specific recipient by (i) a person licensed under the Medical Practice Act of 1987, whether under a general or limited license, (ii) a person licensed or registered under other laws of this State to provide dental, optometric, or pediatric care, or (iii) a licensed clinical social worker may be authorized only when services are recommended for that recipient by a person licensed to practice medicine in all its branches.
    Whenever a rule of the Department requires that an applicant or recipient verify information submitted to the Department, the rule, in order to make the public fully aware of what information is required for verification, shall specify the acceptable means of verification or shall list examples of acceptable means of verification.
    The provisions of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act are hereby expressly adopted and incorporated herein, and shall apply to all administrative rules and procedures of the Illinois Department under this Act, except that Section 5-35 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act relating to procedures for rule-making does not apply to the adoption of any rule required by federal law in connection with which the Illinois Department is precluded by law from exercising any discretion, and the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act with respect to contested cases are not applicable to (1) hearings involving eligibility of applicants or recipients of public aid or (2) support hearings involving responsible relatives.
