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.

420 ILCS 35/1

    (420 ILCS 35/1) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 230.1)
    Sec. 1. The Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is authorized to acquire by private purchase, acceptance, or by condemnation in the manner provided for the exercise of the power of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act, any and all lands, buildings and grounds where radioactive by-products and wastes produced by industrial, medical, agricultural, scientific or other organizations can be concentrated, stored or otherwise disposed in a manner consistent with the public health and safety. Whenever, in the judgment of the Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, it is necessary to relocate existing facilities for the construction, operation, closure or long-term care of a facility for the safe and secure disposal of low-level radioactive waste, the cost of relocating such existing facilities may be deemed a part of the disposal facility land acquisition and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency may, on behalf of the State, pay such costs. Existing facilities include public utilities, commercial or industrial facilities, residential buildings, and such other public or privately owned buildings as the Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency deems necessary for relocation. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is authorized to operate a relocation program, and to pay such costs of relocation as are provided in the federal "Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act", Public Law 91-646. The Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is authorized to exceed the maximum payments provided pursuant to the federal "Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act" if necessary to assure the provision of decent, safe, and sanitary housing, or to secure a suitable alternate location. Payments issued under this Section shall be made from the Low-level Radioactive Waste Facility Development and Operation Fund established by the Illinois Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Act.
