    Sec. 3-3-11.3. Compacts for Crime Prevention and Correction. The Governor of the State of Illinois is further authorized and empowered to enter into any other agreements or compacts with any of the United States not inconsistent with the laws of this State or of the United States, or the other agreeing States, for co-operative effort and mutual assistance in the prevention of crime and in the enforcement of the penal laws and policies of the contracting States and to establish agencies, joint or otherwise, as may be deemed desirable for making effective such agreements and compacts. The intent and purpose of this Act is to grant to the Governor of the State of Illinois administrative power and authority if and when conditions of crime make it necessary to bind the State in a cooperative effort to reduce crime and to make the enforcement of the criminal laws of agreeing States more effective, all pursuant to the consent of the Congress of the United States heretofore granted.
