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.

225 ILCS 85/8

    (225 ILCS 85/8) (from Ch. 111, par. 4128)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
    Sec. 8. Licensure by endorsement; emergency licensure. The Department may, in its discretion, license as a pharmacist, without examination, on payment of the required fee, an applicant who is so licensed under the laws of another U.S. jurisdiction or another country, if the requirements for licensure in the other jurisdiction in which the applicant was licensed, were, at the date of his or her licensure deemed by the Board to be substantially equivalent to the requirements then in force in this State.
    A person holding an active, unencumbered license in good standing in another jurisdiction who applies for a license pursuant to Section 7 of this Act due to a natural disaster or catastrophic event in another jurisdiction may be temporarily authorized by the Secretary to practice pharmacy pending the issuance of the license. This temporary authorization shall expire upon issuance of the license or upon notification that the Department has denied licensure.
    Upon a declared Executive Order due to an emergency caused by a natural or manmade disaster or any other exceptional situation that causes an extraordinary demand for pharmacist services, the Department may issue a pharmacist who holds a license to practice pharmacy in another state an emergency license to practice in this State.
