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.

230 ILCS 5/12.1

    (230 ILCS 5/12.1) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-12.1)
    Sec. 12.1. (a) The General Assembly finds that the Illinois Racing Industry does not include a fair proportion of minority or female workers.
    Therefore, the General Assembly urges that the job training institutes, trade associations and employers involved in the Illinois Horse Racing Industry take affirmative action to encourage equal employment opportunity to all workers regardless of race, color, creed or sex.
    Before an organization license, inter-track wagering license or inter-track wagering location license can be granted, the applicant for any such license shall execute and file with the Board a good faith affirmative action plan to recruit, train and upgrade minorities and females in all classifications with the applicant for license. One year after issuance of any such license, and each year thereafter, the licensee shall file a report with the Board evidencing and certifying compliance with the originally filed affirmative action plan.
    (b) At least 10% of the total amount of all State contracts for the infrastructure improvement of any race track grounds in this State shall be let to minority-owned businesses or women-owned businesses. "State contract", "minority-owned business" and "women-owned business" shall have the meanings ascribed to them under the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Women, and Persons with Disabilities Act.
