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.

    (a) As used in this Section:
    "Key location" means the location where the raffle organized by a law enforcement agency or a statewide association that represents law enforcement officials is conducted and the prize or prizes are awarded.
    "Law enforcement agency" means an agency of this State or unit of local government which is vested by law or ordinance with the duty to maintain public order and to enforce criminal laws or ordinances.
    (b) Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Act, law enforcement agencies and statewide associations that represent law enforcement officials may organize raffles under this Act. Raffles organized by a law enforcement agency or a statewide association that represents law enforcement officials must only be licensed by the governing body of the county or municipality in which the key location for that raffle is located, even if raffle tickets are sold beyond the borders of that governing body of the county or municipality. A raffle organized by a law enforcement agency or a statewide association that represents law enforcement officials must abide by any restrictions established pursuant to subsection (a) of Section 2 of this Act by the governing body of the county or municipality in which the key location is located.
