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 5/23

    (230 ILCS 5/23) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-23)
    Sec. 23. (a) The Board shall promulgate as part of its rules and regulations a set of minimum standards (including, but not limited to, a workers' compensation plan) to be observed by race tracks.
    (b) The failure of a person who has been awarded racing dates to observe the minimum standards to be promulgated by the Board under subsection (a) of this Section shall result in the mandatory suspension of the organization license of that person by the Board. The suspended organization license of the person shall not be reinstated until the minimum standards are observed. Those persons and tracks which apply for dates shall not be granted organization licenses if they are not in observance of the minimum standards to be promulgated by the Board under subsection (a) of this Section.
    The Board may refuse to issue or may suspend the organization license of any person who fails to file a return, or to pay the tax, penalty or interest shown in a filed return, or to pay any final assessment of tax, penalty or interest, as required by any tax Act administered by the Illinois Department of Revenue, until such time as the requirements of any such tax Act are satisfied.
    (c) The Board shall consider the operational needs of the Illinois State Fair and the DuQuoin State Fair as this Section applies to the Illinois Department of Agriculture. In considering the operational needs of the Illinois Department of Agriculture, the Board may waive any rule or portion of a rule when the physical structure, improvement cost or other use of the facilities prohibits compliance within this Act or the Board's rules.
