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.
(220 ILCS 20/2.04)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 552.4)
"Pipeline facilities" includes new and existing pipe rights-of-way and
any equipment, facility, or building used in the transportation of gas
treatment of gas during the course of transportation and
includes facilities within this State that transport gas from an interstate
gas pipeline to a direct sales customer within this State purchasing gas
for its own consumption, but
"rights-of-way" as used in this Act does not authorize the Commission to
prescribe, under this Act, the location or
routing of any pipeline facility. "Pipeline facilities" also includes
new and existing pipes and lines and any other equipment, facility, or
structure, except customer-owned branch lines connected to the primary fuel
lines, used to convey gas from a gas main to the outside wall of
residential premises, and any person who provides gas service directly to its
residential customer through these facilities shall be deemed to operate
such pipeline facilities for purposes of this Act irrespective of the ownership
of the facilities or the location of the facilities with respect to the
meter, except that a person who provides gas service to a "master meter
system", as that term is defined at 49 C.F.R. Section 191.3, shall not be
deemed to operate any facilities downstream of the master meter.
