(415 ILCS 5/3) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1003)
    Sec. 3. Definitions.
    (a) For the purposes of this Act, the words and terms defined in the Sections which follow this Section and precede Section 4 shall have the meaning therein given, unless the context otherwise clearly requires.
    (b) This amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly renumbers the definition Sections formerly included in this Act as Sections 3.01 through 3.94. The new numbering scheme is intended to alphabetize the defined terms and to leave room for additional terms to be added in alphabetical order in the future. It does not reuse any of the original numbers.
    In the bill for this amendatory Act, the renumbered Sections are shown in the manner commonly used to show renumbering in revisory bills. The Sections being renumbered are shown as existing (rather than new) text; only the changes being made to the existing text are shown with striking and underscoring. The original source lines have been retained.
    (c) In a statute, rule, permit, or other document in existence on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, a reference to one of the definition Sections renumbered by this amendatory Act shall be deemed to refer to the corresponding Section as renumbered by this amendatory Act.
