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.

65 ILCS 5/11-117-12.1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-117-12.1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-117-12.1)
    Sec. 11-117-12.1. No gas or electric service furnished to residential users by a municipality shall be terminated for nonpayment of bills on: (i) any day when the National Weather Service forecast for the following 24 hours covering the area in which the residence is located includes a forecast that the temperature will be 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below; or (ii) any day preceding a holiday or a weekend when such a forecast indicates that the temperature will be 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below during the holiday or weekend.
    This amendatory Act of 1979 applies to all municipalities that own or operate a public utility, including home rule units. However, nothing in this Section shall prevent any municipality from establishing more stringent measures.
