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.

820 ILCS 5/1.5

    (820 ILCS 5/1.5)
    Sec. 1.5. Preemption. The provisions of any ordinance or resolution adopted before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly by any unit of local government that impose restrictions or limitations on the picketing of an employer in a manner inconsistent with this Act are invalid, and existing ordinances and resolutions, as they apply to picketing, are void. It is declared to be the policy of this State that the regulation of picketing is an exclusive power and function of the State. A home rule unit may not regulate picketing. This Section is a denial and limitation of home rule powers and functions under subsection (h) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.
