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. 5. Purpose. The General Assembly declares that it is the public policy of the State to promote and encourage the use of alternate fuel in vehicles as a means to improve air quality in the State and to meet the requirements of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and the federal Energy Policy Act of 1992. The General Assembly further declares that the State can play a leadership role in the development of vehicles powered by alternate fuels, as well as in the establishment of the necessary infrastructure to support this emerging technology.
