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. 67 1/2, par. 55b)
In any municipality or county for which a Land Clearance
Commission has been established, and for which no Housing Authority has
been established, the Land Clearance Commission, if a recipient of state
grants under this Act, may, subject to the approval of the Department of
Commerce and Economic Opportunity, exercise
the powers vested in Housing
Authorities under the provisions of this Act and the "Housing
Authorities Act," approved March 19, 1934, as amended, and apply state
grant funds allocated under this Act to any such purpose. For the
purpose of any project so undertaken, the Land Clearance Commission
shall be subject to all laws and regulations applicable to Housing
Authorities. If a Housing Authority is established for any such
municipality or county, the Land Clearance Commission shall thereafter
exercise only those powers designated in the "Blighted Areas
Redevelopment Act of 1947," approved July 2, 1947, as amended, and, in
respect to pending, uncompleted or existing projects undertaken as a
Housing Authority, the Land Clearance Commission, subject to the
approval of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, may either
complete or continue such project, or transfer full and complete power
thereover to the Housing Authority.
