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.

    (20 ILCS 1370/1-40)
    Sec. 1-40. Bulk long distance telephone services for military personnel in military service.
    (a) As used in this Section only:
    "Immediate family" means a service member's spouse residing in the service member's household, brothers and sisters of the whole or of the half blood, children, including adopted children and stepchildren, parents, and grandparents.
    "Military service" means any full-time training or duty, no matter how described under federal or State law, for which a service member is ordered to report by the President, Governor of a state, commonwealth, or territory of the United States, or other appropriate military authority.
    "Service member" means a resident of Illinois who is a member of any component of the United States Armed Forces or the National Guard of any state, the District of Columbia, a commonwealth, or a territory of the United States.
    (b) The Department may enter into a contract to purchase bulk long distance telephone services and make them available at cost, or may make bulk long distance telephone services available at cost under any existing contract the Department has entered into, to immediate family of service members that have entered military service so that immediate family can communicate with the service members. If the Department enters into a contract under this Section, it shall do so in accordance with the Illinois Procurement Code and in a nondiscriminatory manner that does not place any potential vendor at a competitive disadvantage.
    (c) In order to be eligible to use bulk long distance telephone services purchased by the Department under this Section, a service member or immediate family must provide the Department with a copy of the orders calling the service member to military service in excess of 29 consecutive days and of any orders further extending the service member's period of military service.
    (d) If the Department enters into a contract under this Section, the Department shall adopt rules as necessary to implement this Section.
