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.

    Sec. 15-1-5. Grants of power in other statutes; this Act controls. The State of Illinois and its various subdivisions and agencies, and all units of local government, school districts, and other entities, have the powers of condemnation and eminent domain that are (i) expressly provided in this Act or (ii) expressly provided in any other provision of law. Those powers may be exercised, however, only in accordance with this Act. If any power of condemnation or eminent domain that arises under any other provision of law is in conflict with this Act, this Act controls. This Section does not apply to the acquisition or damaging of property under the O'Hare Modernization Act.
