A new law sponsored by Rep. Jonathan Carroll (D-57) that was introduced with the purpose of amending the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois went into effect on July 12, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill HB907 on Jan. 25, when Rep. John Connor (D-85) filed it with the House clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "amend the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois".

After debate, the House passed the bill and it arrived in the Senate on April 11, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 16. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on July 12. 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 HB907.
