Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

330 ILCS 60/2

    (330 ILCS 60/2) (from Ch. 126 1/2, par. 30)
    Sec. 2. As a guide to the interpretation and application of this Act, the public policy of the State is declared as follows:
    As a constituent commonwealth of the United States of America, the State of Illinois is dedicated to the urgent task of strengthening and expediting the national defense under the emergent conditions which are threatening the peace and security of this nation. It is the considered judgment of the General Assembly that the service members of Illinois who respond to their country's call to service in this time of crisis, are deserving of every protection the law may afford, and that repetition of the regrettable experience existing after the great war of 1917-1918, wherein returning service men were subjected to serious discrimination with regard to tenure and other rights, must be avoided, since any form of economic discrimination against returning service men is a serious menace to the entire social fabric of the United States of America and the State of Illinois.
