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 729/73

    (225 ILCS 729/73)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 73. Citations.
    (a) The Office of the State Fire Marshal may adopt rules to permit the issuance of citations for certain violations of this Act or the rules adopted under this Act. The citation shall be issued to the licensee and shall contain the licensee's name and address, the licensee's license number, a brief factual statement, the Sections of the law or rules allegedly violated, and the penalty imposed. The citation must clearly state that the licensee may choose, in lieu of accepting the citation, to request a hearing to appeal the citation. If the licensee does not file a written appeal of the citation with the Office of the State Fire Marshal within 15 days after the citation is served, then the citation shall become a final order imposing a monetary penalty. The penalty shall be a monetary civil fine. In the event of a timely written appeal, the Office of the State Fire Marshal shall conduct an administrative hearing governed by the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act and enter an order to sustain, modify, or revoke such citation. Any appeal from such hearing order shall be to the circuit court of the county in which the violation took place and shall be governed by the Administrative Review Law.
    (b) The Office of the State Fire Marshal shall adopt rules designating violations for which a citation may be issued, which may specify separate hearing procedures for appeals of such citations so long as the hearing procedures are not inconsistent with the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
    (c) Service of a citation may be made by personal service or certified mail to the licensee at the licensee's last known address as listed with the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
