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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(c) any and all costs associated with restoring the land to its original
contour or the grave marker to its original condition;
(d) any and all costs associated with recovery of data, and analyzing,

(f) any and all costs associated with the determination and collection
of restitution; and
(g) for Native American remains and materials, any and all costs of traveling for tribal nation representatives for reinterment or repatriation activities and for non-Native American remains and materials, any and all costs of traveling for experts the Department needed to complete any restoration or identification required under this Act.

deposited into the county funds designated by the county board that may only be used for repatriation or reinterment.
