(50 ILCS 805/2)
(from Ch. 85, par. 5802)
Findings and purpose.
(a) It is the purpose of this Act to
encourage municipalities and
counties to protect the land, air, water, natural resources
and environment of the State and to encourage the use of such resources
in a manner which is socially and economically desirable through the adoption
of joint or compatible Local Land Resource Management Plans.
The powers granted in this Act are intended to supplement other lawful
authority and not to repeal or limit such authority.
(b) When a municipality or a county has acted according to this
Act, they are furthering the policy of the State in land resource
management. It is the intent of this Act for such units of local
government to be immune from liability under federal antitrust laws.
