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.

    (740 ILCS 185/3) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 9403)
    Sec. 3. The courts of this State may order the Director or his representative to secure 3 independent value appraisals to determine the stumpage value of wrongfully cut timber or trees under Section 2 of this Act. Such order must state the reason the value information is needed, the parties involved in the action, the area to be examined and other information needed by the Department to carry out its responsibilities. The court must instruct all parties to the court action to make themselves available to the Department at reasonable times to assist in the location of areas and material to be examined. Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the parties shall bear equally the cost of expenses incurred, including but not limited to those for surveys, consulting services, attorney's fees, and administrative costs. The court shall allow a plaintiff who prevails to recover the cost of expenses incurred.
