Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 75. State nuclear power policy. Subject to appropriation, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, in cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources, shall study (i) the impact and cost of nuclear power and compare these to the impact and cost of alternative sources of energy, (ii) the potential effects on the public health and safety of all radioactive emissions from nuclear power plants, and (iii) all other factors that bear on the use of nuclear power or on nuclear safety. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency shall formulate a general nuclear policy for the State based on the findings of the study. The policy shall include but not be limited to the feasibility of continued use of nuclear power, effects of the use of nuclear power on the public health and safety, minimum acceptable standards for the location of any future nuclear power plants, and rules and regulations for the reporting by public utilities of radioactive emissions from power plants. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency shall establish a reliable system for communication between the public and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and for dissemination of information by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency shall publicize the findings of all studies and make the publications reasonably available to the public.
