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 615/13) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 5013)
    Sec. 13. Upon the expiration or forfeiture of any permit no new permit covering the lands, or any of them, embraced by such expired or forfeited permit shall be issued for a period of thirty (30) days following the date of such expiration or forfeiture. If more than one application for a permit covering such lands, or any of them, shall be made during such thirty-day period, the Department shall issue a permit to such lands, or any of them, to the person offering the greatest cash bonus for such permit at a public auction to be held at the time and place and in the manner as the Department shall by regulation prescribe. Such auction shall be held at any time after the expiration of such thirty-day period and the only notice thereof shall be by entering in a book kept at the office of the Department for the purpose, which book shall be a public record, the date, place and hour of the holding of such auction.
