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.

    (5 ILCS 85/2) (from Ch. 1, par. 1651)
    Sec. 2. The repeal of the acts and parts of acts mentioned in the preceding section shall not affect suits pending or rights existing at the time this act takes effect, and as to all corporations, municipal or private, heretofore formed under any act of incorporation mentioned in the preceding section, such act of incorporation, and all amendments thereof, shall continue in force to the same extent and with like effect as if the same had not been repealed by this act, nor shall such repeal, as above mentioned, be taken, construed or held to avoid or impair any grant made or right acquired, or cause of action now existing under any such acts or the amendments thereto, but as to all grants made or rights acquired or causes of action now existing, said laws shall be continued in full force and effect. And all deeds or other instruments of writing affecting real estate, which have been proved or acknowledged according to any law in force at the time such proof or acknowledgment was made, may be recorded, and the same or a certified copy of the record thereof be read in evidence, notwithstanding the repeal of such laws by this or any other act of this or the twenty-seventh General Assembly. And when any limitation law has been revised by this or the twenty-seventh General Assembly, and the former limitation law repealed, such repeal shall not be construed so as to stop the running of any statute, but the time shall be construed as if such repeal had not been made.
