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.

The Department shall carry on a continuous study and investigation of the lottery throughout the State (1) for the purpose of ascertaining any defects in this Act or in the rules and regulations issued under this Act whereby any abuses in the administration and operation of the lottery or any evasion of this Act or the rules and regulations may arise or be practiced, (2) for the purpose of formulating recommendations for changes in this Act and the rules and regulations promulgated hereunder to prevent such abuses and evasions, (3) to guard against the use of this Act and the rules and regulations issued hereunder as a cloak for the carrying on of organized gambling and crime, and (4) to insure that the law and rules and regulations shall be in such form and be so administered as to serve the true purposes of this Act.
