Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Office

Updating the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) database is an ongoing process. More recent legislation may not yet be in the ILCS database but can be found on this website aspublic actssoon after they became law. Information on the relationship between laws and public acts can be found in theguide.

Because the Legislative Database is maintained primarily for draft legislation purposes, amendments to the Articles of Incorporation are sometimes added to the Legislative Database before they become effective. If the source at the end of a section of the statute contains public law that has not yet come into force, the current version of the law may already have been removed from the database and you should refer to that public law in the event of changes made under applicable law.
