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. 3-4007. Compensation.
    (a) The public defender shall be paid out of the county treasury, and, subject to appropriation, shall be paid by the Department of Revenue out of the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the General Revenue Fund as provided in subsection (b), as the sole compensation for his or her services a salary in an amount fixed by the County Board. When a Public Defender in a county of 30,000 or more population is receiving not less than 90% of the compensation of the State's Attorney of such county, that Public Defender shall not engage in the private practice of law.

Subject to appropriation, these amounts furnished by the State shall be payable monthly by the Department of Revenue out of the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the General Revenue Fund to the county in which each Public Defender is employed.
    (c) In cases where 2 or more adjoining counties have joined to form a common office of Public Defender, the salary of the Public Defender shall be set and paid as provided by a joint resolution of the various county boards involved.
