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 4116/5

    (20 ILCS 4116/5)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on August 1, 2025)
    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds the following:
        (1) Illinois' transportation system is crucial to
every resident, employee, and business. It serves as the backbone of the economy and is a critical component of Illinois' economic competitiveness.
        (2) The State must continue to pursue an equitable
transportation network in which marginalized communities have improved access to all modes of transportation, thereby enhancing access to jobs, housing, and other services.
        (3) Illinois is home to an expansive transportation
network, currently ranking third in the nation for the number of roadway miles and bridges, totaling 127,044 and 26,848, respectively. The State also has 6,883 miles of freight railway, 1,118 inland waterway miles, 58 transit systems with over 450 million annual transit trips, and 17 major airports.
        (4) The historic Rebuild Illinois capital plan
adopted in 2019 will end in June 2025.
        (5) The motor fuel tax and vehicle registration fees
remain the most significant form of transportation funding for Illinois.
        (6) Illinois will continue to contend with
transportation funding shortfalls due to increasing vehicle fuel efficiency and the rising popularity of electric vehicles.
        (7) New and innovative funding and policy options are
needed to adequately maintain Illinois' transportation systems and support future growth.
        (8) The General Assembly should study these issues to
determine funding mechanisms for transportation projects and operations in Illinois, policy changes to support the efficient governance and delivery of transportation projects, and the workforce needed to support the future transportation system.
