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.

(from Ch. 23, par. 5112)
Registration under this Act shall not be deemed to constitute an
endorsement by the State of Illinois of the charitable organization,
professional fund raiser, or professional solicitor so registered. It shall
be unlawful for any charitable organization, professional fund raiser, or
professional solicitor to represent, directly or indirectly, for the
purpose of solicitation and collection of funds for charitable purposes, in
any form or manner whatsoever by advertising or otherwise, that it has
registered or otherwise complied with the provisions of this Act. The
Attorney General may, in his discretion, cancel the registration of any
organization, professional fund raiser, or professional solicitor which or
who violates the provisions of this Section. The Attorney General shall,
by rule, set forth the standards by which he shall make this determination.
Such standards shall be stated as precisely and clearly as practicable, to
inform fully those persons affected.
