Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Optometric Practice Act of 1987 and the Elder Abuse and Neglect Act. Provides that willfully failing to report an instance of suspected abuse or neglect (instead of child abuse or neglect) as required by law (instead of as required by the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act) is grounds for disciplinary action against an optometrist. Provides that any optometrist who willfully fails to report suspected elder abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, or self-neglect shall be referred to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for disciplinary action.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that neither the Governor nor any agency or agency head under the jurisdiction of the Governor has any rulemaking authority under the amendatory Act, but that the Governor may suggest rules by filing them with the General Assembly and requesting that the General Assembly authorize such rulemaking by law, enact the suggested rules into law, or take other appropriate action in the General Assembly's discretion.
