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.

    (15 ILCS 405/6.01) (from Ch. 15, par. 206.01)
    Sec. 6.01. Specification and establishment of accounting standards and principles. The Comptroller shall specify and establish the financial accounting and reporting standards and principles to be used by all State government and State agencies. The standards and principles shall be effective upon filing by the Comptroller with the Auditor General. The Comptroller shall maintain and publish the standards and principles as a public document. These standards and principles shall be known as the Generally Accepted Accounting Standards and Principles for Illinois State Government, and shall, whenever possible, be compatible with any similar nationally existing generally accepted accounting standards and principles for government.
    In establishing the Generally Accepted Accounting Standards and Principles for Illinois State Government, the Comptroller shall consult with the Governor and the other members of the Executive Branch, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and the leadership of the General Assembly and shall provide to these officials draft copies of any proposed standards at least 90 days prior to their adoption and shall consider any responses or suggestions that these officials may present.
