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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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 1605/7.1)
(from Ch. 120, par. 1157.1)
The Department shall promulgate such rules and
regulations governing the establishment
and operation of a State lottery as it deems necessary to carry out the
purposes of this Act. Such rules and regulations shall be subject to the
provisions of The Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. The Department shall issue written game rules, play instructions, directives, operations manuals, brochures, or any other publications necessary to conduct specific games, as authorized by rule by the Department.
Any written game rules, play instructions, directives, operations manuals,
brochures, or other game publications issued by the Department that relate
to a specific lottery game shall be maintained as a public record in the
Department's principal office, and made available for public inspection and
copying but shall be exempt from the rulemaking procedures of the Illinois
Administrative Procedure Act. However, when such written materials contain
any policy of general applicability, the Department shall formulate and
adopt such policy as a rule in accordance with the provisions of the
Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. In addition, the Department shall
publish each January in the Illinois Register a list of all game-specific
rules, play instructions, directives, operations manuals, brochures, or
other game-specific publications issued by the Department during the
previous year and instructions concerning how the public may obtain copies
of these materials from the Department.
