On August 14, the Illinois governor signed into law the “Illinois Career Preservation and Student Loan Repayment Act,” Public Act 100-0872, which amends various Illinois laws with the purpose of preventing state government agencies or boards from denying, refusing to renew, suspending, revoking, or initiating another disciplinary action upon a state professional license for a person’s failure to perform on a state guaranteed student loan or grant. The act is effective immediately.
