FOREWORD 



This index was compiled using information which was handwritten in 
ledgers on file in the Index Department of the Secretary of State's 
Office. The subject matter entries in this index do not necessarily 
match the entries in the index of the published books entitled "Laws 
of Illinois" (Session Laws). The significance of this index is the 
inclusion of the enrolled law number. No law enacted from 1812 to 
1968 can be retrieved by the State Archives unless the enrolled law 
number is known. The Session Laws do not contain this number. 

Beginning in 1969 a Public Act number (rather than an enrolled law 
number) was assigned to a bill when it was approved by the Governor 
and filed with the Secretary of State. As the Public Act numbers of 
laws enacted since 1969 are published in the Session Laws and due to 
the fact that these laws can be retrieved by the State Archives by 
Public Act number, this index ends with the year 1968. 

This document has been microfiched and can be found in the Illinois 
State Document Depository Program libraries. Any public library may 
borrow a copy of the microfiche on interlibrary loan from the Illinois 
State Library, Illinois Documents Section, Centennial Building, 
Springfield, Illinois 62756, (217) 782-6304. It is also possible to 
obtain the index on diskettes by contacting the Index Department.
