Vital Records Act Legislation Given Approval

SHARE NOW

Legislation sponsored by State Representative Ryan Spain (R-Peoria) which amends the Vital Records Act has been given approval in the Senate and now makes its way to the governor’s desk for approval.

HB4993 provides that if a death occurs in Illinois, in a county outside the deceased’s county of residence, the local registrar of the district in which the death certificate was filed shall, within 7 days after its filing, send a copy of the death certificate to the local registrar in the district where the deceased’s county of residence is located.

This legislation came from the family of an individual who died in a county outside the one where he lived. The family experienced difficulty getting the death certificate in the home county from the county where he died.
