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.

    (410 ILCS 230/Art. II heading)

410 ILCS 230/2-100

    (410 ILCS 230/2-100) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4602-100)
    Sec. 2-100. (A) The General Assembly finds:
    (1) The problems of problem pregnancy and parenthood are multiple and complex and are best approached through a variety of integrated and essential services;
    (2) Such services, including a wide array of educational and supportive services often are not available to persons who need them, or are available but fragmented and thus of limited effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and future welfare dependency.
    (3) State policy therefore should encourage the development of appropriate health, educational, and social services where they are now lacking or inadequate, and the better coordination of existing services where they are available, in order to assist problem pregnancies and to help those people in need to become productive independent contributors to family and community life.
    (B) It is, therefore, the purpose of this Act:
    (1) To establish better linkages among existing programs in order to expand and improve the availability of, and access to, needed comprehensive community services which assist problem pregnancies and to obtain proper care and assistance to those persons in need to become productive independent contributors to family and community life;
    (2) To expand the availability of community services that are essential to that objective; and
    (3) To promote innovative, comprehensive and integrated approaches to the delivery of such services.
