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 3440/3.5

    (20 ILCS 3440/3.5)
    Sec. 3.5. Encounter procedure. When an undertaking encounters human remains, unregistered graves, grave markers, or grave artifacts, all activities shall cease within a 100-foot radius of the encounter. The encountering party shall notify the coroner and the Department as required in Section 3. If the coroner determines that the human remains are not over 100 years old, no further action is required under this Act. If the coroner does determine that the human remains are over 100 years old, the Department shall review the undertaking and may issue a permit pursuant to Section 13. During its review, if it is determined by the Department that the human remains, unregistered grave, grave marker, or grave artifact are Native American in origin, the Department shall conduct tribal consultation with the tribal nations that identify as having or having had a historical, cultural, or geographic affiliation on the land where the undertaking will occur.
