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.

725 ILCS 5/124B-900

    (725 ILCS 5/124B-900)
    Sec. 124B-900. Legislative declaration. The General Assembly finds that the forfeiture of real property that is used or intended to be used in connection with any show, exhibition, program, or other activity featuring or otherwise involving a fight between an animal and any other animal or human or involving the intentional killing of any animal for the purpose of sport, wagering, or entertainment will have a significant beneficial effect in deterring the rising incidence of those activities within this State, as well as other crimes that frequently occur in partnership with animal fighting, such as illegal gambling, possession of narcotics, and weapons violations.
