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.

    (230 ILCS 5/14a) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-14a)
    Sec. 14a. The Board may employ hearing officers qualified by professional training or previous experience according to rules established by the Board. The Board shall also establish rules providing for the disqualification of hearing officers for bias or conflict of interest. Such hearing officers shall, under the direction of the Board, take testimony of witnesses, examine accounts, records, books, papers and facilities, either by holding hearings or making independent investigations, in any matter referred to them by the Board; and make report thereof to the Board, and attend at hearings before the Board when so directed by the Board, for the purpose of explaining their investigations and the result thereof to the Board and the parties interested; and perform such other duties as the Board may direct, subject to its orders. The Board may make final administrative decisions based upon reports presented to it and investigations and hearings conducted by hearing officers.
