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. 114, par. 99)
When any passenger shall be guilty of disorderly conduct, or use
any obscene language, to the annoyance and vexation of passengers or employees, or play
any games of cards or other games of chance for money or other valuable
thing, upon any railroad train or boat, the conductor of the train
and captain or master of the boat is authorized to stop the
train or boat, at or near any place where an offense has been committed or at an available public station or dock, and remove the
passenger from the train or boat using only the force
necessary to accomplish the removal, and may command the assistance of the
employees of the railroad company or boat, or any of the other passengers willing and able to
assist with the removal; but before removing the passenger the conductor or captain or master shall tender to the
passenger the total fare the passenger has paid, minus the portion of the total fare attributable to the distance travelled by the passenger prior to being removed from the train or boat. No operating rule, bulletin, directive, or other order of a carrier shall contradict or limit the authority granted in this Section.
