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.

230 ILCS 5/24

    (230 ILCS 5/24) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-24)
    Sec. 24. (a) No license shall be issued to or held by an organization licensee unless all of its officers, directors, and holders of ownership interests of at least 5% are first approved by the Board. The Board shall not give approval of an organization license application to any person who has been convicted of or is under an indictment for a crime of moral turpitude or has violated any provision of the racing law of this State or any rules of the Board.
    (b) An organization licensee must notify the Board within 10 days of any change in the holders of a direct or indirect interest in the ownership of the organization licensee. The Board may, after hearing, revoke the organization license of any person who registers on its books or knowingly permits a direct or indirect interest in the ownership of that person without notifying the Board of the name of the holder in interest within this period.
    (c) In addition to the provisions of subsection (a) of this Section, no person shall be granted an organization license if any public official of the State or member of his or her family holds any ownership or financial interest, directly or indirectly, in the person.
    (d) No person which has been granted an organization license to hold a race meeting shall give to any public official or member of his family, directly or indirectly, for or without consideration, any interest in the person. The Board shall, after hearing, revoke the organization license granted to a person which has violated this subsection.
    (e) (Blank).
    (f) No organization licensee or concessionaire or officer, director or holder or controller of 5% or more legal or beneficial interest in any organization licensee or concession shall make any sort of gift or contribution of any kind or pay or give any money or other thing of value to any person who is a public official, or a candidate or nominee for public office.
