Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

320 ILCS 5/1

    (320 ILCS 5/1) (from Ch. 23, par. 6151)
    Sec. 1. It is hereby found and determined by the General Assembly that state boards and commissions exist for the singular purpose of protecting the public health and welfare; that citizens over 60 years of age represent a significant percentage of the population and have the time and experience to devote to the important issues which have a profound effect on the daily lives of older Illinoisans.
    It is also hereby found that senior citizens shall hold their positions on boards and commissions by matter of right, not discretion. These positions shall be held by consumer representatives over the age of 60 who shall serve as spokespersons for the interests of the State's older population.
