CHICAGO – State Rep. Bob Morgan, D-Deerfield, Chair of the House Health Care Licensing Committee, will continue the process of addressing the ongoing delays in licensure processing by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), by holding a public hearing of his committee on Sep. 27 at 10:00 a.m. in room C-600 on the 6 th Floor of the Michael A. Bilandic Building on LaSalle St. in downtown Chicago.

The delays have led to many professionals, including nurses and other health care workers, as well as their employers, having to worry about their ability to keep working should their licenses lapse. Morgan and other lawmakers on the Committee will hear from health care providers, representatives of health systems, pharmacies and IDFPR. Hearings of this kind are often among the first steps in crafting policy in response to a given problem, and typically determine the direction that future legislative or regulatory efforts will take.
