    AN ACT concerning regulation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Oil and Gas Act is amended by
changing Section 6.1 as follows:
    (225 ILCS 725/6.1)  (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 5410)
    Sec. 6.1. When the applicant has complied with all
applicable provisions of this Act and the rules of the
Department, the Department shall issue the permit. All
applications for a permit submitted to the Department shall
either be granted, or denied, or a deficiency letter issued in
writing within 20 business days after the date of receipt by
the Department, unless the applicant and Department mutually
agree to extend the 20-day period. If granted, the written
permit shall be issued. If a deficiency letter is issued
denied, the Department shall provide specific requirements for
additional information or documentation needed for the
application to be considered and the permit issued. Upon
submission of the required information and documentation, the
same process and timeframe as provided in this Section shall
continue until either the permit is issued or it is determined
that the permit cannot be issued because of legal or regulatory
impediments. The Department shall respond in a timely manner to
any application or submission of additional information and
documentation after initial submission.
