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.

    (730 ILCS 168/15)
    Sec. 15. Authorization.
    (a) The Chief Judge of each judicial circuit may establish a mental health court program, in compliance with the Problem-Solving Court Standards. At the discretion of the Chief Judge, the mental health court program may be operated in one or more counties of the circuit and allow defendants from all counties within the circuit to participate. Mental health court programs must be certified by the Supreme Court.
    (b) Whenever the county boards of 2 or more counties within the same judicial circuit determine that a single mental health court program would best serve those counties, the county board of each such county may adopt a resolution to the effect that there shall be a single mental health court program serving those counties, and shall provide a copy of the resolution to the Chief Judge of the judicial circuit. Upon receipt of such a resolution, the Chief Judge may establish or, in the case of an existing mental health court program, reorganize a single mental health court program to serve these counties.
