Legislative Bills & Information

Any individual can search for a bill or resolution on the Illinois General Assembly website by clicking on the Bills & Resolutions under the Legislation & Laws section.  Specific bills, by numbers or keywords, can be sought by using the search box.  If you aren’t sure what number the bill may have, you can use key words to narrow down your search.  For example, if one is searching for information related to “Service Animals”, one could possibly try using the following as keywords: “service animals”, “service dogs”, “hearing dog”, and/or “sighted dogs”.
In addition, if an auxiliary aid and services is needed during a legislative activity, program or service, an accommodation request and information can be found by clicking on ADA Accessibilities for Persons with Disabilities under the Additional Resources section.
