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.

520 ILCS 5/2.19

    (520 ILCS 5/2.19) (from Ch. 61, par. 2.19)
    Sec. 2.19. It shall be unlawful to use a floating blind for the taking of migratory waterfowl, as permitted by this Act, unless such blind is anchored in a stationary position when in use. This does not prohibit the use of a scull boat in taking migratory waterfowl except where use of a scull boat is prohibited by Administrative Rule. A scull boat is defined as a boat propelled by means of an oar fixed in a notch in the transom of a boat and worked in a turning or sculling motion.
    A floating blind is defined as any watercraft or floating structure that is camouflaged, disguised, or altered in appearance to offer a place of concealment and is capable of carrying a person. Such floating blind may be mechanically powered as long as such power is used only for movement to and from the place of hunting and no attempt is made to hunt during such movement.
