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. 11-15.4-30. Unreasonable restrictions and regulations; special assessments and levies.
    (a) A municipality may not exercise any of its powers to enact ordinances within an urban agricultural area in a manner that would unreasonably restrict or regulate farming practices in contravention of the purposes of this Act unless the restrictions or regulations bear a direct relationship to public health or safety.
    (b) A unit of local government providing public services, such as sewer, water, lights, or non-farm drainage, may not impose benefit assessments or special ad valorem levies on land within an urban agricultural area on the basis of frontage, acreage, or value unless the benefit assessments or special ad valorem levies were imposed prior to the formation of the urban agricultural area or unless the service is provided to the landowner on the same basis as others having the service.
