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.

If the Director issues an order on the amended plan, or if the dividing company withdraws the amended plan before an order is issued, then the dividing company shall file an amended certificate of division pursuant to this Section. Nothing in this subsection (e) shall allow a dividing company to amend its plan of division under Section 35B-15 on or after the effective date specified in a certificate of division that is active or that has been stayed.
