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.

605 ILCS 30/1

    (605 ILCS 30/1) (from Ch. 121, par. 601)
    Sec. 1. Legislative declarations and findings. The General Assembly declares that since a third of the population owns bicycles, there is an urgent need for safe bikeways, for the use of both children and adults for transportation, healthy exercise and recreation.
    The General Assembly finds that to coordinate plans for bikeways most effectively with those of the State and local governments as they affect roads, streets, schools, parks, and other publicly owned lands, lands not owned by a municipality, local unit of government, county, or the State of Illinois or one of its agencies or authorities by agreement, abandoned roadbeds and conservation areas, while maximizing the benefits from the use of tax dollars, a single State agency, eligible to receive federal matching funds, should be designated to establish and maintain a State-wide bikeways program.
