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.

    (a) The responsible public entity may exercise any power of condemnation or eminent domain, including quick-take powers, that it has under law, including, in the case of the Department, all powers for acquisition of property rights granted it in the Illinois Highway Code, for the purpose of acquiring any lands or estates or interests in land for a transportation project to the extent provided in the public-private agreement or otherwise to the extent that the responsible public entity finds that the action serves the public purpose of this Act and deems it appropriate in the exercise of its powers under this Act.
    (b) The responsible public entity and a contractor may enter into the leases, licenses, easements, and other grants of property interests that the responsible public entity determines necessary to carry out this Act.
