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.

70 ILCS 605/4-8

    (70 ILCS 605/4-8) (from Ch. 42, par. 4-8)
    Sec. 4-8. Change from appointment to election of commissioners in certain districts. In any district, whether heretofore or hereafter organized, 10 per cent or more of the adult landowners may petition the court to change the method of selecting commissioners from appointment to election. The practice and procedure on a petition to change from the appointment to the election of commissioners shall follow, as nearly as the facts will permit, the practice and procedure set forth in Section 4-6 for the change from elective to appointive commissioners. The commissioners in office at the time an order is given or made directing that thereafter the commissioners shall be elected in the manner provided by this Act shall continue in office until the time that their successors would have been appointed under Section 4-1 and until their successors have been elected and shall have qualified.
