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.

50 ILCS 325/1

    (50 ILCS 325/1) (from Ch. 107, par. 47)
    Sec. 1. Any governmental unit charged with the duty of administering relief to poor and indigent persons which levied taxes for the year 1936 or shall have levied taxes for any year thereafter for the relief and support of all poor and indigent persons lawfully resident therein may use that part of the proceeds of such taxes, not required to pay expenditures incurred for such poor relief purposes in the year for which such taxes shall have been levied or to pay warrants issued in anticipation thereof, for the relief and support of all poor and indigent persons lawfully resident therein for any year after the year for which such taxes shall have been levied.
    That such taxes so levied for the year 1936 or for any year thereafter may have exceeded the amount required to pay poor relief expenditures actually incurred in the year for which such taxes were or will be levied shall not constitute an objection to the validity of such taxes inasmuch as the amount of money actually needed for poor relief purposes for any year can only be estimated and cannot be realized during the year for which such taxes have been levied and could not have been known at the time such taxes were levied and the need for money for poor relief purposes is an obligation continuing from year to year and will require the expenditure of money therefor in the year or years following such levy.
    The use of such proceeds of said poor relief taxes in paying poor relief expenditures incurred in the following year or years and the inclusion thereof in the appropriation ordinance for the following year or years by any such governmental unit is declared to have been within the intent of the statute authorizing the levy of such taxes and such appropriations are hereby legalized.
