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.

35 ILCS 17/10-5

    (35 ILCS 17/10-5)
    Sec. 10-5. Purpose. The Illinois economy depends heavily on the commercial for-profit live theater industry and the accredited theater productions that are presented in Illinois. As a result of intense competition from other prominent theater cities in the United States and abroad in attracting theater productions, Illinois must move aggressively with new business development investment tools so that Illinois is more competitive in site location decision making for show producers. In an increasingly global economy, Illinois' long-term development will benefit from the rational, strategic use of State resources in support of accredited theater productions. It is the purpose of this Act to preserve and expand the existing work force used in live theater and enhance the marketing of the presentation of live theater in Illinois. It shall be the policy of this State to promote and encourage the training and hiring of Illinois residents who represent the diversity of the Illinois population through the creation and implementation of training, education, and recruitment programs organized in cooperation with Illinois colleges and universities, labor organizations, and the commercial for-profit live theater industry.
