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.

630 ILCS 5/80

    (630 ILCS 5/80)
    Sec. 80. Powers liberally construed. The powers conferred by this Act shall be liberally construed in order to accomplish their purposes and shall be in addition and supplemental to the powers conferred by any other law. If any other law or rule is inconsistent with this Act, this Act is controlling as to any public-private agreement entered into under this Act. To implement the powers conferred by this Act, the responsible public entity may establish rules and procedures for the procurement of a public-private agreement under this Act. Nothing contained in this Act is intended to supersede applicable federal law or to foreclose the use or potential use of federal funds. In the event any provision of this Act is inconsistent with applicable federal law or would have the effect of foreclosing the use or potential use of federal funds, the applicable federal law or funding condition shall prevail, but only to the extent of such inconsistency.
