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.

5 ILCS 80/6

    (5 ILCS 80/6) (from Ch. 127, par. 1906)
    Sec. 6. Factors to be studied. In conducting the study required under Section 5, the Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall consider, but is not limited to consideration of, the following factors in determining whether an agency or program should be recommended for termination, modification, or continuation:
        (1) the full range and variety of practices and
activities included in the scope of practice covered by the agency or program, including modes of practice or subspecialties that have developed since the last review;
        (2) (blank);
        (3) the extent to which the regulatory agency or
program has operated in the public interest, and the extent to which its operation has been impeded or enhanced by existing statutes, procedures, and practices of any other department of State government, and any other circumstances, including budgetary, resource, and personnel matters;
        (4) the extent to which the agency running the
program has recommended statutory changes to the General Assembly that would benefit the public as opposed to the persons it regulates;
        (5) the extent to which the agency or program has
required the persons it regulates to report to it concerning the impact of rules and decisions of the agency or the impact of the program on the public regarding improved service, economy of service, and availability of service;
        (6) the extent to which persons regulated by the
agency or under the program have been required to assess problems in their industry that affect the public;
        (7) the extent to which the agency or program has
encouraged participation by the public in making its rules and decisions as opposed to participation solely by the persons it regulates and the extent to which such rules and decisions are consistent with statutory authority;
        (8) the efficiency with which formal public
complaints filed with the regulatory agency or under the program concerning persons subject to regulation have been processed to completion, by the executive director of the regulatory agencies or programs, by the Attorney General and by any other applicable department of State government;
        (9) the extent to which changes are necessary in the
enabling laws of the agency or program to adequately comply with the factors listed in this Section;
        (10) the extent to which there is evidence of
significant and discernible harm arising from the full range and variety of practices and activities included in the scope of practice;
        (11) the substance, content, and relevance of
the personal qualifications required for entry into the trade, business, profession, occupation, or industry being regulated, including, but not limited to, as required hours of training, required curricula during the required hours, knowledge areas tested in examinations, and any updates that have been made since the last review to address changes in technology or modes of practice;
        (12) the extent to which all the personal
qualifications that the agency or program requires for individuals to enter the trade, business, profession, occupation, or industry being regulated are necessary to protect the public from significant and discernible harm, for all activities covered by the scope of practice;
        (13) equity concerns arising from the personal
qualifications, including:
            (A) financial impact on aspiring licensees,
including, but not limited to, (i) itemization of average costs of achieving personal qualifications; (ii) an assessment of average incomes of licensees; and (iii) numbers, monetary loss, and demographics of individuals who start but do not achieve personal qualifications or complete the application process;
            (B) challenges for individuals from
historically disadvantaged backgrounds in acquiring personal qualifications;
            (C) barriers for individuals with records of
interactions with the criminal justice system;
            (D) evidence of challenges for individuals who
do not speak English as their primary language; and
            (E) geographic distribution of training sites
and test sites; and
        (14) the extent to which enforcement actions under
the agency or program have addressed significant and discernible harms to the public as opposed to technical noncompliance with the requirements of the agency or program.
