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.

305 ILCS 5/11-1

    (305 ILCS 5/11-1) (from Ch. 23, par. 11-1)
    Sec. 11-1. No discrimination). There shall be no discrimination or denial of financial aid and social services on account of the race, religion, color, national origin, sex, marital status, or political affiliation of any applicant or recipient. This paragraph shall not prevent the Department from treating individuals differently as a result of the rights and responsibilities that arise under law from marital status.
    Participation in any marriage promotion or family formation activity is voluntary. Non-participation shall not affect any person's eligibility for or receipt of financial aid or social services in any program under this Code.
    Where financial aid or social services are granted to certain classes of persons under a program for which federal funds are available, nothing in this Section shall require granting of financial aid or social services to other persons where federal funds would not be available as to those other persons.
