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.

225 ILCS 705/6.12

    (225 ILCS 705/6.12) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 612)
    Sec. 6.12. It shall be unlawful for the operator of any mine to have in his service as mine examiner any person who does not hold a certificate of competency issued by the Mining Board except that anyone holding a mine manager's certificate may serve as a mine examiner. The mine manager shall not act in the capacity of mine examiner while acting as mine manager. However, whenever any exigency arises by which it is impossible for any operator to secure the immediate services of a certificated examiner, he may employ any trustworthy and experienced man of the mine inspection district to act as temporary mine examiner for a period not exceeding 7 days, and with the approval of the State Mine Inspector of the district, for a further period not exceeding 23 days. The employment of persons who do not hold certificates as mine examiners shall in no case exceed the limit of time specified herein, and the State Mine Inspector shall not approve of the employment of such persons beyond the 23 day limit.
