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 1920/2.11) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 8002.11)
    Sec. 2.11. Non-coal reclamation.
    (a) (Blank).
    (b) The Department may make expenditures and carry out the purposes of this Section for lands mined for substances other than coal; provided, however, that those non-coal reclamation projects be accorded a high priority under subsection (a) of paragraph (1) of Section 2.03 and that annual expenditures for non-coal reclamation do not exceed 2% of the Department's annual budget for mine land reclamation. Except for those non-coal reclamation projects relating to the protection of the public health or safety which shall be accorded a high priority, non-coal reclamation expenditures shall be made only after all reclamation with respect to abandoned coal lands or coal development impacts has been accomplished.
    (c) In those instances where coal mine waste piles are being reworked for conservation purposes, the Department may make additional incremental expenditures to dispose of the wastes from such operations by filling voids and sealing tunnels if the disposal of these wastes is in accordance with the purposes of this Section.
    (d) The Department shall acquire, by purchase, exchange, gifts, condemnation or otherwise, the fee simple title or any lesser interest in and to such land rights or other property as the Department considers necessary to carry out the provisions of this Section. Transfers and dispositions of such land shall be made in the same manner as prescribed by Section 2.07 of this Act.
    (e) Consistent with this Section, the Department may enter and reclaim abandoned non-coal mined lands in the same manner as prescribed in Section 2.04 of this Act.
