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.

20 ILCS 2310/2310-220

    (20 ILCS 2310/2310-220) (was 20 ILCS 2310/55.73)
    Sec. 2310-220. Findings; rural obstetrical care. The General Assembly finds that substantial areas of rural Illinois lack adequate access to obstetrical care. The primary cause of this problem is the absence of qualified practitioners who are willing to offer obstetrical services. A significant barrier to recruiting and retaining those practitioners is the high cost of professional liability insurance for practitioners offering obstetrical care.
    Therefore, the Department, from funds appropriated for that purpose, shall award grants to physicians practicing obstetrics in rural designated shortage areas, as defined in Section 3.04 of the Underserved Health Care Provider Workforce Act, for the purpose of reimbursing those physicians for the costs of obtaining malpractice insurance relating to obstetrical services. The Department shall establish reasonable conditions, standards, and duties relating to the application for and receipt of the grants.
