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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

voting members appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent
of the Senate, and one voting member who is a student at Illinois State
University. The student member shall be chosen by a campus-wide student
election. The student member shall serve a term of one year beginning on July

university (sometimes commonly referred to as the summer session or summer
school). If a student member serving on the Board fails to
continue to meet or maintain the residency, minimum grade point average, or
