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.

410 ILCS 105/5

    (410 ILCS 105/5)
    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds that:
        (1) Excessive indoor dampness in buildings is a
widespread problem that warrants action at the local, State, and national levels.
        (2) Because of the public's concern about the
possible public health effects of exposure to mold in buildings, as well as the effects on workers performing remediation work, and the costs of remediation for the property owner, there is a need to identify parties performing mold remediation in the State.
        (3) Because there is a need to reduce moisture that
fosters mold formation in buildings, the State should review current State building codes to ensure that they do not foster mold.
        (4) Parties providing mold remediation services in
residential, public, and commercial buildings in Illinois should be required to register with the State and provide proof of financial responsibility.
        (5) Laboratories performing tests to confirm mold
contamination in buildings should be certified by the American Industrial Hygiene Association using nationally recognized accreditation standards set under the Environmental Microbiology Laboratory Accreditation Program.
