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.

    (20 ILCS 687/6-2)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on December 31, 2025)
    Sec. 6-2. Findings and intent. The General Assembly finds and declares that it is desirable to obtain the environmental quality, public health, and fuel diversity benefits of developing new renewable energy resources and clean coal technologies for use in Illinois and to lower the cost of renewable energy resources and clean coal resources provided to utility consumers. The General Assembly finds and declares that the benefits of electricity from renewable energy resources and clean coal technologies accrue to the public at large, thus consumers and electric utilities and alternative retail electric suppliers share an interest in developing and using a significant level of these environmentally preferable resources in the State's electricity supply portfolio. The General Assembly finds and declares that encouraging energy efficiency will improve the environmental quality and public health in the State of Illinois.
