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.

220 ILCS 75/5

    (220 ILCS 75/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative purpose. Pipeline transportation of carbon dioxide for sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, and other purposes is declared to be a public use and service, in the public interest, and a benefit to the welfare of Illinois and the people of Illinois because pipeline transportation is necessary for sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, or other carbon management purposes and thus is an essential component to compliance with required or voluntary plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from "clean coal" facilities and other sources. Carbon dioxide pipelines are critical to the promotion and use of Illinois coal and also advance economic development, environmental protection, and energy security in the State.
