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.

430 ILCS 85/2-12

    (430 ILCS 85/2-12) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4062)
    Sec. 2-12. Correction notice and order for cessation of operation of amusement ride or attraction.
    (a) If, upon inspection, the Department determines that an element or elements of an amusement ride or amusement attraction are in violation of this Act or any rules adopted under this Act, the Department may issue a correction notice to the owner or operator, allowing the owner or operator to continue operating the amusement ride or amusement attraction but requiring the owner or operator to address the deficiency and come into compliance with adopted standards by a set deadline. If the owner or operator does not meet the deadline established in the correction notice, the Department may issue a cessation order as described in subsection (a-5) of this Section.
    (a-5) The Department may order, in writing, a temporary and immediate cessation of operation of any amusement ride or amusement attraction, also known as a "stop order", if:
        (1) it has been determined after inspection to be
hazardous or unsafe;
        (2) it is in operation before the Director has issued
a permit to operate such equipment; or
        (3) the owner or operator is not in compliance with
any of the requirements contained in this Act or any rules or regulations adopted under this Act.
    (b) After the cessation of operation, operation of the amusement ride or amusement attraction shall not resume until:
        (1) the unsafe or hazardous condition is corrected to
the satisfaction of the Director;
        (2) the Director has issued a permit to operate such
equipment; or
        (3) the owner or operator is in compliance with the
requirements contained in this Act and any rules or regulations adopted under this Act.
    (c) The Department shall notify the owner or operator in writing, via certified mail, service by sheriff, personal service, or in person, of the grounds for the cessation of operation of the amusement ride or attraction and of the conditions in need of correction at the time the order for cessation is issued. The Department may also notify the county sheriff or other local law enforcement where the amusement enterprise is operated that the Department has issued a cessation order to that enterprise. The Department shall post or shall require the owner or operator to post a notice at the entrance to the amusement enterprise stating that a cessation order has been issued for the attraction. The notice shall remain posted until the cessation order has been lifted by the Department.
    (c-5) Upon request by the Department, the Illinois State Police or local law enforcement may enforce a cessation order.
    (d) The owner or operator may appeal an order of cessation by filing a request for a hearing. The Department shall afford the owner or operator 10 business days after the date of the notice to request a hearing. Upon written request for hearing, the Department shall schedule a formal administrative hearing in compliance with Article 10 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act and pursuant to the provisions of the Department's rules of procedure in administrative hearings, except that formal discovery, such as production requests, interrogatories, requests to admit, and depositions will not be allowed. The parties shall exchange documents and witness lists prior to hearing and may request third party subpoenas to be issued.
    (e) The final determination by the Department of Labor shall be rendered within 5 business days after the conclusion of the hearing.
    (f) The provisions of the Administrative Review Law shall apply to and govern all proceedings for the judicial review of a final determination under this Section.
