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. 111 2/3, par. 13-508.1)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2017)
Separate subsidiary requirement for certain electronic
publishing. A telecommunications carrier
that offers or provides both competitive and noncompetitive services shall
not provide (1) electronically published news, feature, or entertainment
material of the type generally published in newspapers, or (2) electronic
advertising services, except through a fully separated subsidiary;
provided, however, that a telecommunications carrier shall be allowed to
resell, without editing the content, news, feature, or entertainment
material of the type generally published in newspapers that it purchases
from an unaffiliated entity or from a separate subsidiary to the extent the
separate subsidiary makes that material available to all other persons
under the same rates, terms, and conditions. Nothing in this Section shall
prohibit a telecommunications carrier from electronic advertising of its
own regulated services or from providing tariffed telecommunications
services to a separate subsidiary or an unaffiliated entity that provides
electronically published news, feature, or entertainment material or
electronic advertising services.
