It was a great evening celebrating the passing of Bill 4175.
Hosted by ASID and IIDA at Marshall’s Landing in the Merchandise Mart. Signed into law by Governor J.B. Pritzker on June 10, 2022, the legislation establishes a robust slate of practice rights for interior designers in Illinois and confirms that interior design work positively impacts lives in the built environment. The legislation expands the scope of interior design with permitting privileges for interior designers to stamp and seal plans, thus defining interior designers as professionals who protect and advance occupant health safety in their work. In expanding the scope of interior design, the new legislation recognizes the extensive education and knowledge of interior designers concerning safety solutions in the built environment, including ADA-friendly features and fire safety codes.
