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 5/14

    (230 ILCS 5/14) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-14)
    Sec. 14. (a) The Board shall hold regular and special meetings at such times and places as may be necessary to perform properly and effectively all duties required under this Act. A majority of the members of the Board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of any business, for the performance of any duty, or for the exercise of any power which this Act requires the Board members to transact, perform or exercise en banc, except that upon order of the Board one of the Board members may conduct the hearing provided in Section 16. The Board member conducting such hearing shall have all powers and rights granted to the Board in this Act. The record made at the hearing shall be reviewed by the Board, or a majority thereof, and the findings and decision of the majority of the Board shall constitute the order of the Board in such case.
    (b) The Board shall obtain a court reporter who will be present at each regular and special meeting and proceeding and who shall make accurate transcriptions thereof except that when in the judgment of the Board an emergency situation requires a meeting by teleconference, the executive director shall prepare minutes of the meeting indicating the date and time of the meeting and which members of the Board were present or absent, summarizing all matters proposed, deliberated, or decided at the meeting, and indicating the results of all votes taken. The public shall be allowed to listen to the proceedings of that meeting at all Board branch offices.
    (c) The Board shall provide records which are separate and distinct from the records of any other State board or commission. Such records shall be available for public inspection and shall accurately reflect all Board proceedings.
    (d) The Board shall file a written annual report with the Governor on or before March 1 each year and such additional reports as the Governor may request. The annual report shall include a statement of receipts and disbursements by the Board, actions taken by the Board, a report on the industry's progress toward the policy objectives established in Section 1.2 of this Act, and any additional information and recommendations which the Board may deem valuable or which the Governor may request.
    (e) The Board shall maintain a branch office on the ground of every organization licensee during the organization licensee's race meeting, which office shall be kept open throughout the time the race meeting is held. The Board shall designate one of its members, or an authorized agent of the Board who shall have the authority to act for the Board, to be in charge of the branch office during the time it is required to be kept open.
