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.

    (620 ILCS 5/74) (from Ch. 15 1/2, par. 22.74)
    Sec. 74. Condemnation. In exercising its powers and performing its functions under the laws of this State pertaining to aeronautics, when it is necessary for the use and benefit of the public, pursuant to such laws, that private property be taken or damaged or entry be made on private property, for the purpose of constructing and installing any airport, restricted landing area or other air navigation facility, including buildings, structures and other improvements in connection therewith, the Department in the name of the State, within the limitations of available appropriations, shall have the right to purchase the necessary land, rights in land, or easements, including avigation easements, from the owner thereof and purchase from the owner the right of entry, or if compensation therefor cannot be agreed upon between the Department and the owner, to have just compensation ascertained and to acquire and pay for such property, land, easement or right of entry, in the manner provided for the exercise of the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act. When the Department, in the name of the State, files a petition to condemn any private property, rights in land, or easement, as herein provided, the Department may enter upon the land and premises, and the buildings or structures located thereon, notwithstanding that the damage or compensation in connection with such condemnation has not theretofore been determined and paid.
