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. 8.08. All examinations held by the Miners' Examining Board shall be conducted in the English language and shall be of a practical nature so as to determine the competency and qualification of the applicant to engage in mining. The Miners' Examining Board shall examine under oath all persons who apply for certificates as to their previous experience as miners and shall grant certificates of competency to such applicants as are qualified, which certificates shall entitle the holder thereof to be employed as and to do the work of miners in this State.
