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 5/36a

    (230 ILCS 5/36a) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-36a)
    Sec. 36a. (a) It is recognized that there are horses which exhibit symptoms of epistaxis or respiratory tract hemorrhage which with proper treatment are sound and able to compete in races. The Board shall establish by rule the appropriate standards for the administration of furosemide (Lasix) or other Board approved bleeder medications in such circumstances.
    (b) Every horse entered to race shall be placed in a security area as designated by the Board. The Board, in designating a security area, shall not require that a horse be placed in a barn or stall other than the barn or stall assigned to that horse by the racing secretary. The barn or stall shall be posted as a security area. The trainer of record shall be responsible for the security of the horse and barn or stall area. The security area shall be under the supervision of the Board.
    No unauthorized person shall approach the security area. If any unauthorized person does approach the security area, a report of the incident is to be made immediately to one of the State veterinarians or the stewards, or a board investigator.
    The provisions of this Section 36a and the treatment authorized herein shall apply to and be available only for horses entered in and competing in race meetings as defined in Section 3.07 of this Act.
