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. 21.16. Illinois DREAM scratch-off.
    (a) The Department shall offer a special Illinois DREAM instant scratch-off game for the benefit of the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission. The new revenue from the Illinois DREAM scratch-off game shall be deposited into the Illinois DREAM Fund, a special fund that is created in the State treasury. Subject to appropriation, money in the Illinois DREAM Fund shall be used to assist in funding scholarships and other statutory responsibilities of the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission. The game shall commence on January 1, 2024 or as soon thereafter as is reasonably practical. The Department shall consult with the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission established under Section 67 of the Higher Education Student Assistance Act regarding the design and promotion of the game.
    (b) The operation of any games under this Section shall be governed by this Act, and any rules shall be adopted by the Department.
    (c) For purposes of this Section, "net revenue" means the total amount for which tickets have been sold less the sum of the amount paid out in prizes and the actual administrative expenses of the Department solely related to the Illinois DREAM scratch-off game.
    (d) During the time that tickets are sold for the Illinois DREAM scratch-off game, the Department shall not unreasonably diminish the efforts devoted to marketing any other instant scratch-off lottery game.
    (e) The Department may adopt any rules necessary to implement and administer this Section in consultation with the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission.
