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.

    Sec. 141. Preventing Lost Potential Day. September 19 of each year is designated as Preventing Lost Potential Day, to be observed throughout the State as a day set apart to provide a new focus on the importance of and dedication to educate, encourage, protect, and develop our State's youth. The State of Illinois must push to allow all youth to experience life in the fullest, increasing exposure to positive community influences, and enhancing the development of a positive and confident approach to citizenship. This day shall serve as a continued symbol of the movement to make the State of Illinois the best place in the nation for youth.
