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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 63, par. 42.35)
No comment or opinion shall be included in the fiscal note
with regard to the merits of the measure for which the fiscal note is
prepared; however, technical or mechanical defects may be noted. The
work sheet shall include, insofar as practicable, a breakdown of the
costs upon which any appropriation measure or measure which is expected
to cause an expenditure of State, local governmental, school district,
or community college district funds is based and the expectable direct or
or decrease in State, local governmental, school district, or community
college district revenues, as the case may be, including but not
necessarily limited to costs of personnel, materials and supplies and
capital outlay. It shall also include such other information as is
required by rules and regulations which may be promulgated by each house
of the General Assembly with respect to the preparation of fiscal notes.
The fiscal note shall be prepared in quintuplicate, and the name of the
State board, commission, department, agency, or other entity preparing
it shall appear at the end of the note and the original of both the work
sheet and the fiscal note shall be signed by the head of the board,
commission, department, agency, or other entity or by a responsible
representative designated by him for the purpose.
