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.

    (65 ILCS 5/10-2.1-11) (from Ch. 24, par. 10-2.1-11)
    Sec. 10-2.1-11. Promotional examinations-Credits to veterans.) The board of fire and police commissioners shall give preference for promotional appointment to persons designated in Section 10-2.1-10 whose names appear on promotional eligibility registers by adding to the final grade average which they will receive as a result of any promotional examination 7/10 of one point for each 6 months or fraction thereof of military or naval service not exceeding 30 months. The numerical result thus attained shall be applied by the board of fire and police commissioners in determining the position of such persons on any eligibility list as the result of any promotional examination held for purposes of preference in certification and appointment from such eligibility list.
    No person shall receive the preference for a promotional appointment granted by this Division 2.1 after he has received one promotion from an eligibility list on which he was allowed such preference.
