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.

625 ILCS 5/6-500.2

    (625 ILCS 5/6-500.2) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-500.2)
    Sec. 6-500.2. Statement of intent and purpose. The purpose of this UCDLA is to implement the federal Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 (CMVSA) (Title XII of Pub. Law 99-570) and reduce or prevent commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities and injuries by:
        (a) permitting commercial drivers to hold only one
driver's license;
        (b) disqualifying commercial drivers who have
committed certain serious traffic violations, or other specified offenses; and
        (c) strengthening commercial driver licensing and
testing standards.
    This UCDLA is remedial in nature and should be liberally construed to promote the public's health, safety and welfare. To the extent that this UCDLA conflicts with any other provisions of this Code, the UCDLA shall prevail. Where this UCDLA is silent, the other general provisions of this Code shall apply.
