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.

105 ILCS 129/5

    (105 ILCS 129/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative findings. The General Assembly finds as follows:
        (1) Asthma and oral health problems are 2 of the
leading causes of absenteeism among Illinois elementary and secondary school students.
        (2) Illinois youth must deal with increasing obesity,
poor nutrition, substance abuse, and mental health crises.
        (3) Many Illinois families lack adequate health
insurance or access to health care facilities.
        (4) Improving the physical and mental health of
Illinois' youth is vital to building an educated workforce for Illinois' future.
        (5) School health centers provide quality health care
services like immunizations, physical exams, asthma care, mental health counseling, and health in schools, and national and local evaluations have found that school health centers increase access to health care, reduce absenteeism, reduce health care access disparities, and reduce unhealthy behaviors that compromise health and education success.
        (6) Illinois school health centers were found to save
the State an estimated $2,500,000 each year by reducing emergency room visits, $2,720,000 a year by providing immunizations, and $233,000-$342,000 a year by reducing asthma-related hospitalizations.
