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.
(410 ILCS 240/3.1)
Lysosomal storage disorders.
In accordance with the timetable specified in this Section, the Department shall provide all newborns with screening tests for the presence of certain lysosomal storage disorders known as Krabbe, Pompe, Gaucher, Fabry, and Niemann-Pick. The testing shall begin within 6 months following the occurrence of all of the following:
(1) the establishment and verification of relevant
and appropriate performance specifications as defined under the federal Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments and regulations thereunder for Federal Drug Administration-cleared or in-house developed methods, performed under an institutional review board approved protocol, if required;
(2) the availability of quality assurance testing
methodology for these processes;
(3) the acquisition and installment by the Department
of the equipment necessary to implement the screening tests;
(4) the establishment of precise threshold values
ensuring defined disorder identification for each screening test;
(5) the authentication of pilot testing achieving
each milestone described in items (1) through (4) of this Section for each disorder screening test; and
(6) the authentication of achieving the potential of
high throughput standards for statewide volume of each disorder screening test concomitant with each milestone described in items (1) through (4) of this Section.
It was the goal of Public Act 97-532 that the screening for the specified lysosomal storage disorders begins within 2 years after August 23, 2011 (the effective date of Public Act 97-532). The Department is authorized to implement an additional fee for the screening prior to beginning the testing in order to accumulate the resources for start-up and other costs associated with implementation of the screening and thereafter to support the costs associated with screening and follow-up programs for the specified lysosomal storage disorders.
