The Illinois Registered Design Practitioners Act, which allows licensure for registered design practitioners to stamp and seal drawings for nonresidential projects, has been introduced in the Illinois General Assembly this week. Illinois SB 1270 was introduced to the General Assembly by State Sen. Kimberly A. Lightford (D-4th District). In addition to expanding the rights of registered interior designers in the state, the bill also establishes a Registered Design Practitioner Licensing Board.
“We fully support the efforts of Senator Kimberly Lightford in introducing this bill, which recognizes interior designers as qualified professionals practicing in code-impacted spaces in Illinois,” said ASID CEO Randy Fiser. “This legislation will help interior designers expand their design businesses, and in turn, will bolster the economy in Illinois.”
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is working closely with the Illinois Interior Design Coalition and the ASID Illinois chapter to push this bill through the legislature.

About ASID: The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidenced-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.
ASID was founded 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
