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.

    (305 ILCS 5/4-21)
    Sec. 4-21. Sanctions.
    (a) The Illinois Department shall, by rule, establish a system of sanctions for persons who fail to cooperate, without good cause, with employment and training programs or other programs under this Article or Article IXA or who fail to cooperate with child support programs under this Article, Article X, or Title IV of the federal Social Security Act. The sanctions may be time limited or continue until the person cooperates in the program. The sanctions may be progressive in that a second, third, or further sanction may be progressively more severe or last longer.
    (a-1) The Illinois Department shall, by rule, impose a 30% reduction of the portion of the grant amount designated for the adult member or members of the assistance unit when an adult member is found to be in noncompliance without good cause.
    (a-2) No sanction shall reduce the portion of the grant amount that is designated for the child or children of the assistance unit.
    (a-3) The full grant amount must be restored on the first day of the month following a determination that the adult member or members of the assistance unit are in compliance with program requirements and are otherwise eligible for assistance.
    (b) The Illinois Department shall, by rule, define what constitutes failure to cooperate and what constitutes good cause which would excuse that failure.
