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.

25 ILCS 50/5

    (25 ILCS 50/5) (from Ch. 63, par. 42.35)
    Sec. 5. No comment or opinion shall be included in the fiscal note with regard to the merits of the measure for which the fiscal note is prepared; however, technical or mechanical defects may be noted. The work sheet shall include, insofar as practicable, a breakdown of the costs upon which any appropriation measure or measure which is expected to cause an expenditure of State, local governmental, school district, or community college district funds is based and the expectable direct or indirect increase or decrease in State, local governmental, school district, or community college district revenues, as the case may be, including but not necessarily limited to costs of personnel, materials and supplies and capital outlay. It shall also include such other information as is required by rules and regulations which may be promulgated by each house of the General Assembly with respect to the preparation of fiscal notes. The fiscal note shall be prepared in quintuplicate, and the name of the State board, commission, department, agency, or other entity preparing it shall appear at the end of the note and the original of both the work sheet and the fiscal note shall be signed by the head of the board, commission, department, agency, or other entity or by a responsible representative designated by him for the purpose.
