From yesterday's AOA daily report:
Concerning Developments for Illinois DOs
Physicians in Illinois might face changes to their medical practice rights if the State government does not act quickly to correct an oversight. The Illinois Medical Practice Act is set to sunset on 12/31/08, as the legislature failed to pass an extension or reauthorization of the Act before recessing this month. AOA General Counsel, our Division of State Government Affairs, and the Illinois Osteopathic Medical Society are all actively investigating the ramifications a sunset of the Medical Practice Act would have on physicians, such as whether their licenses will still be active and implications on physician liability. We will provide you with additional information as soon as it is available.
