Legislative Update

January 2017


Over 190 laws went into effect in Illinois on January 1, 2017. These new laws cover areas such as public safety, regulation, and consumer protection.

A comprehensive review of each law passed during the Spring Legislative Session and its effective date is available by clicking here.

Procedurally, some bills passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by the Governor had an immediate effective date and therefore do not appear on the comprehensive list. January 1
is typically the default effective date of legislation unless unique circumstances require an immediate effective date.

You can access the ICPAS Government Relations Office legislative tracking reports and see real time status of legislation that may be of interest to you.

The 100th General Assembly will be sworn in on January 11th, thereby beginning a new session of the General Assembly. All bills introduced and pending in the 99th General Assembly will sine die and require reintroduction to advance in the new General Assembly.
