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.

    (410 ILCS 535/18.5)
    Sec. 18.5. Electronic reporting system for death registrations. The State Registrar shall facilitate death registration by implementing an electronic reporting system. The system may be used to transfer information to individuals and institutions responsible for completing and filing certificates and related reports for deaths that occur in the State. The system shall be used to transfer information to the Department of Healthcare and Family Services not less often than once every 3-month period for the purpose of updating the roster of Medicaid recipients. The system shall be capable of storing and retrieving accurate and timely data and statistics for those persons and agencies responsible for vital records registration and administration. Upon establishment of such an electronic reporting system, but not later than January 1, 2011, the county clerk in the county in which a death occurred or the county clerk of the county where a decedent last resided, as indicated on the decedent's death certificate, shall be authorized to issue certifications of death records from such system, and the State Registrar shall cause the electronic reporting system to provide for such capability. The Department of Financial and Professional Regulation shall have access to the system to enhance its enforcement of the Cemetery Oversight Act.
