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.

    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds as follows:
    (1) That the protection of women and children from sexual assault is critically important.
    (2) That every state in the nation has a sex offender registration law.
    (3) That Illinois, as well as other states in the nation, including Iowa and Missouri, have laws restricting where convicted or registered sex offenders may reside.
    (4) That the residency restrictions are not consistent between states.
    (5) That the disparity in residency restrictions and registration requirements is of concern to communities and law enforcement in Illinois.
    (6) That it would benefit Illinois, its citizens, and its border states, including Iowa and Missouri, for a task force to be created to analyze the impact of the disparity between states regarding registration requirements and residency restrictions on convicted or registered sex offenders, or both.
