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.

410 ILCS 325/2

    (410 ILCS 325/2) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 7402)
    Sec. 2. Findings; intent. The General Assembly finds and declares that sexually transmissible diseases constitute a serious and sometimes fatal threat to the public and individual health and welfare of the people of the State and visitors to the State. The General Assembly finds that the incidence of sexually transmissible diseases is rising at an alarming rate and that these diseases result in significant social, health and economic costs, including infant and maternal mortality, temporary and lifelong disability and premature death. The General Assembly finds that sexually transmissible diseases, by their nature, involve sensitive issues of privacy, and it is the intent of the General Assembly that all programs designed to deal with these diseases afford patients privacy, confidentiality and dignity. The General Assembly finds that medical knowledge and information about sexually transmissible diseases are rapidly changing. The General Assembly intends to provide a program that is sufficiently flexible to meet emerging needs, deals efficiently and effectively with reducing the incidence of sexually transmissible diseases, and provides patients with a secure knowledge that information they provide will remain private and confidential.
