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.

510 ILCS 92/5

    (510 ILCS 92/5)
    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds the following:
        (1) Controlling the dog and cat population would have
a significant benefit to the public health and safety by aiding in the prevention of dog attacks, reducing the number of dog and cat bite cases involving children, and decreasing the number of automobile crashes caused by stray dogs and cats.
        (2) Increasing the number of rabies-vaccinated,
owned pets in low-income areas will reduce potential threats to public health and safety from rabies.
        (3) Controlling the dog and cat population will save
taxpayer dollars by reducing the number of dogs and cats handled by county and municipal animal control agencies. Targeted low-cost spay or neuter programs for dogs and cats in select Illinois counties and other states have proven to save taxpayers money.
        (4) This Act is established to provide a variety of
means by which population control and rabies vaccinations may be financed.
