Health Care Licensure Commission - RG 589 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Health Care Licensure Commission - RG 589


Historical Note: The Health Care Licensure Commission was created by the General Assembly in 1971 to study the status of licensure and regulation in Illinois as it affects the health care delivery system, the full utilization of health and allied health manpower, the problem of entry into and career progression in the health care field, possible changes in the health and allied health care training system consistent with the protection of the public health, and legislation or administrative changes to improve existing practices. The commission was composed of six members of the House and six members of the Senate, respectively appointed by the Speaker and the president pro tempore, and eight citizen members appointed by the Governor. Also created was an Advisory Committee to the Health Care Licensure Study Commission composed of a physician, a podiatrist, a chiropractor, a dentist, a dental hygienist, a pharmacist, a registered nurse, an optometrist, a psychologist, a physical therapist, a representative of the Illinois Hospital Association, and the director of a clinical laboratory, all appointed by the Governor. The commission was to make its final report to the General Assembly by March 1, 1973 and thereafter both the commission and its advisory committee expired on July 1, 1973 (P.A. 77-1511, pp. 2781-2782).
