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.

625 ILCS 5/18c-7402.1

    (625 ILCS 5/18c-7402.1)
    Sec. 18c-7402.1. Pilot projects; automated audible warning devices.
    (a) The General Assembly finds and declares that, for the communities of the State that are traversed by railroads, there is a growing need to mitigate train horn noise without compromising the safety of the public. Therefore, after applications are filed and approved by the Commission, the Commission shall authorize pilot projects in the counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Will to test the utility and safety of stationary automated audible warning devices as an alternative to trains having to sound their horns as they approach highway-rail crossings.
    (b) In light of the pending proposed ruling by the Federal Railroad Administration on the use of locomotive horns at all highway-rail crossings across the nation, it is in the best interest of the State for the Commission to expedite the pilot projects in order to contribute data to the federal rulemaking process regarding the possible inclusion of stationary automated warning devices in the counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Will as a safety measure option to the proposed federal rule.
    (c) The Commission shall adopt rules for implementing the pilot projects in the counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Will.
