House Bill 2776 - Professional license applications

HB 2776 requires the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) to expedite professional license applications submitted by service members or their spouses within thirty days of receiving all required documentation. This updated process will help ease the transition process when a service family relocates as members and their spouses frequently hold licenses for professions including nursing, pharmacy, and dentistry.

The newly signed law also updates state statute regarding licensure requirements. Going forward, applications for licensure must include proof that the applicant meets the requirements and standards for the occupation or profession they're applying for.

HB 2776 is effective January 1, 2022. This bill passed both chambers of the legislature, has been signed by the Governor and is now Public Act - 102-0384.
