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.

    (815 ILCS 325/7) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 327)
    Sec. 7. Inapplicability. This Act shall not apply in any municipality that provides for the registration of recyclable metal purchased by resolution, ordinance or regulation that substantially complies with the substantive provisions of this Act or any rule or regulation hereunder with the exception of the penalty provisions. The fact of such nonapplication shall be evidenced by a certificate of exemption issued by the Department of State Police or such department as may succeed to its functions, if it finds that a municipal resolution, ordinance, or regulation meeting such requirements is being enforced. The certificate of exemption shall be available for inspection in the office of the municipal clerk. This Act does not apply in municipalities with populations of 1,000,000 or over.
