AN ACT to provide information on individuals with respect
to whom an indicated report of child abuse or any other
violations has been made and who are licensed providers through
the Department of Children and Family Services.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 1. The Child Care Act of 1969 is amended by adding
Section 9.1c as follows:
(225 ILCS 10/9.1c new)
Sec. 9.1c. Public database of day care homes, group day
care homes, and day care centers; license status. No later than
July 1, 2018, the Department shall establish and maintain on
its official website a searchable database, freely accessible
to the public, that provides the following information on each
day care home, group day care home, and day care center
licensed by the Department: whether, within the past 5 years,
the day care home, group day care home, or day care center has
had its license revoked by or surrendered to the Department
during a child abuse or neglect investigation or its
application for a renewal of its license was denied by the
Department, and, if so, the dates upon which the license was
revoked by or surrendered to the Department or the application
for a renewal of the license was denied by the Department. The
Department may adopt any rules necessary to implement this
Section. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to allow or
authorize the Department to release or disclose any information
that is prohibited from public disclosure under this Act or
under any other State or federal law.
