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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

thereafter as possible, the State Comptroller shall direct and the State Treasurer shall transfer from the State Lottery Fund to the Common School Fund the Department's estimate of net lottery proceeds.
(4) If an amount in excess of the annual net

If an amount less than the annual net lottery proceeds is transferred for a fiscal year, then after the related annual fiscal year audit is completed following such fiscal year, the Department shall direct the deposit of any remaining annual net lottery proceeds from such fiscal year, subject to payments under paragraphs (1) and (2), into the Common School Fund as soon thereafter as possible.
