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.

    Further, the State of Illinois accepts retrocession of and authorizes acceptance of retrocession of concurrent legislative jurisdiction over all those lands owned by the United States that may subsequently be identified by the Department of the Army as part of the U.S. Army Depot Activity Savanna Military Reservation, Jo Daviess County and Carroll County, Illinois, although not included within the legal description contained in this subsection, to the extent concurrent jurisdiction has not previously been retroceded to the State of Illinois. Any additional land over which the State accepts retrocession of concurrent jurisdiction shall be identified in a notice filed by the Governor as provided in subsection (d).
    (b) Pursuant to concurrent legislative jurisdiction, both State and federal laws are applicable. Since most major crimes violate both federal and State laws, both may punish an offender for an offense committed in the area. The State of Illinois, subject to the exemption of the federal government, has the right to tax. The regulatory powers of the State of Illinois may be exercised in the area, but not in such a manner as to interfere with federal functions. Persons residing on the area under concurrent legislative jurisdiction are ensured important rights and privileges of citizenship, such as the right to vote and access to the Illinois courts.
    (c) Subject to subsection (b), the State of Illinois accepts cession of concurrent legislative jurisdiction from the United States.
    (d) The Governor of the State of Illinois is authorized to accept the retrocession of concurrent legislative jurisdiction over the subject lands by filing a notice of acceptance with the Illinois Secretary of State.
    (e) Upon transfer by deed of the subject lands, or any portion thereof, by the United States of America, the concurrent jurisdiction retained by the United States shall expire as to the particular property transferred.
