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.
(225 ILCS 415/14)
(from Ch. 111, par. 6214)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Expiration, renewal, and military service.
The expiration date and renewal period for each certificate issued
under this Act shall be set by rule.
Any certified shorthand reporter who has permitted his certificate to expire
or who has had his certificate on inactive status may have his certificate
restored by making application to the Department, filing proof acceptable
to the Department of his fitness to have his certificate restored and
paying the required restoration fee. The Department may consider a
certificate expired less than 5 years as prima facie evidence that the
applicant is fit. If a certificate has expired or has been placed on
inactive status and the applicant has practiced in another jurisdiction
during such period, satisfactory proof of fitness may include
sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction.
If the certified shorthand reporter has not maintained an active practice
in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Department shall
determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, his fitness to
resume active status and shall, by rule, establish procedures and requirements for restoration.
However, any certified shorthand reporter whose certificate expired while
he was (1) in Federal Service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the
United States, or the State Militia called into service or training, or
(2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States
preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his certificate
renewed or restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if within 2 years
after termination of such service, training or education except under
conditions other than honorable, he furnished the Department with
satisfactory evidence to the effect that he has been so engaged and that
his service, training or education has been so terminated.
