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.

the criminal history report it obtained requires further review, including detailed information on whether the need for further review is based on federal law or on the Authority's determination that the criminal history record of the applicant or other household member indicates a risk to the health, safety, or peaceful enjoyment of housing for other residents;
(2) identifies the specific conviction or convictions
upon which the Authority relied upon when making its decision to deny the applicant's housing application;
(3) explains that the applicant has a right to an
individualized criminal records assessment hearing regarding the Authority's decision to deny the applicant's housing application, as set forth in Section 25.02;
(4) provides clear instructions on what to expect
during an individualized criminal records assessment hearing, as set forth in Section 25.02;
