Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

(730 ILCS 140/) Private Correctional Facility Moratorium Act.

730 ILCS 140/1

    (730 ILCS 140/1) (from Ch. 38, par. 1581)
    Sec. 1. Short title. This Act shall be known and may be cited as the Private Correctional Facility Moratorium Act.
(Source: P.A. 86-1412.)

730 ILCS 140/2

    (730 ILCS 140/2) (from Ch. 38, par. 1582)
    Sec. 2. Legislative findings. The General Assembly hereby finds and declares that the management and operation of a correctional facility or institution involves functions that are inherently governmental. The imposition of punishment on errant citizens through incarceration requires the State, any unit of local government or a county sheriff, to exercise its coercive police powers over individuals and is thus distinguishable from privatization in other areas of government. It is further found that issues of liability, accountability and cost warrant a prohibition of the ownership, operation or management of correctional facilities by for-profit private contractors.

730 ILCS 140/3

    (730 ILCS 140/3) (from Ch. 38, par. 1583)
    Sec. 3. Certain contracts prohibited. After the effective date of this Act, the State, any unit of local government, or a county sheriff, shall not contract with a private contractor or private vendor for the provision of services relating to the operation of a correctional facility or the incarceration of persons in the custody of the Department of Corrections, the Department of Juvenile Justice, or a sheriff; however, this Act does not apply to (1) State work release centers or juvenile residential facilities that provide separate care or special treatment operated in whole or part by private contractors or (2) contracts for ancillary services, including medical services, educational services, repair and maintenance contracts, or other services not directly related to the ownership, management or operation of security services in a correctional facility.
