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.

    Sec. 21-261. Scavenger sale automation. Beginning in calendar year 2021, for every scavenger sale held pursuant to Section 21-260 of this Code, the county collector may employ any electronic automated means that the collector deems appropriate, provided that any electronic automated bidding system so used shall be programmed to accept the highest cash bid made by an eligible tax purchaser. If the county collector conducts the scavenger sale using an electronic automated bidding system, no personal attendance by bidders will be required at the scavenger sale. If automated means are used, all hardware and software used with respect to those automated means must be certified by the Department and re-certified by the Department every 5 years.
