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 available on this site as Public Acts.
Public Acts are added to this site soon after they become law. Searching the Public Act database is helpful when you want to know whether a particular Section or Act in the statutes has been amended by a recent Public Act. For example, if you want to see whether 10 ILCS 5/1-4 has been amended by a recent Public Act, then search for 10 ILCS 5/1-4 using the Public Act search page.
