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.

Effect on other laws.
The powers and duties
of the Auditor General under this Act and the
system of audits established by this Act are in addition to any other
powers, duties or audits required or authorized by law.
Where records or information are classified as confidential,
by or pursuant to law, such records or information shall be
disclosed to the Office of the Auditor General as necessary
and to the extent required for the performance of an authorized post audit. Federal tax information shall only be provided in accordance with federal law and regulation applicable to the safeguarding of federal tax information.
Confidential records or information disclosed to the Office of the
Auditor General shall be subject to the same legal confidentiality
and protective restrictions in the Office of the Auditor General as
such records and information have in the hands of the official
authorized custodian. Any penalties applicable to the officially
authorized custodian or his employees for the violation of any
confidentiality or protective restrictions applicable to such
records or information shall also apply to the officers, employees, contractors,
and agents of the Office of the Auditor General.
The Office of the Auditor General may not publish any
confidential information or records in any report, including data
and statistics, if such information as published is directly or
indirectly matchable to any individual.
Inside the Office of the Auditor General, confidential records
or information may be used only for official purposes.
Any officer, employee, contractor, or agent of the Office of the Auditor
General who violates any legal confidentiality or protective
restriction governing any records or information shall be guilty
of a Class A misdemeanor unless a greater penalty is otherwise
provided by law.
Where this Act expressly governs or grants authority for regulations
to govern other auditing procedures, this Act supersedes all other
statutes to the contrary. To the extent that this Act conflicts with
another statute, this Act prevails.
Except as provided in this Section, this Act does not supersede or
repeal by implication any other statute.
