A new law sponsored by Rep. Michael P. McAuliffe (R-20) that was introduced with the purpose of amending the Health Care Worker Background Check Act went into effect on July 31, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill SB1965 on Feb. 15, when Sen. Elgie R. Sims, Jr. (D-17) filed it with the Senate clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "amend the Health Care Worker Background Check Act".

The Senate passed the bill and it arrived in the House on March 27, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 23. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on July 31. The law went into effect immediately.

Illinois legislature enacts laws through bills that can be introduced in either the state House of Representatives or the state Senate. Either chamber of the legislature can reject or amend a bill before it becomes law. Legislators sometimes sponsor "shell bills" devoid of substantive provisions, introduced with the intention of being amended later to include actual legislation.

The following table shows the full history of actions on SB1965.
