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.

    (55 ILCS 5/6-31013)
    Sec. 6-31013. Transitional audits.
    (a) No later than 10 days after certification of the election results, the county board chairperson, county board president, or county executive shall notify newly elected countywide officials of the option for an auditor to conduct a transitional audit at the county's expense. An elected county auditor shall conduct the audit upon a request of the newly elected countywide official. In a county that does not have an elected county auditor, the newly elected countywide official may hire a qualified auditing firm. The county board shall pay all costs associated with an audit. The transitional audit shall examine funds expended by the official for whom the newly elected official is taking over and report if the expended funds were consistent with the county board's financial allocations to that official.
    (b) A county board shall give the option for a transitional financial audit to all county officials elected in or after November 2016.
    (c) A home rule county shall not regulate transitional audits in a manner inconsistent with this Section. This Section is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of powers and functions exercised by the State.
