Descriptions and the status of bills passed during this year’s shortened spring legislative session are detailed in the 2020 edition of the Digest of Bills Passed

The IASB Governmental Relations Department prepares the annual publication that contains information on bills approved by the legislature that impact and are of importance to Illinois public education.
 
The Digest categorizes legislation by topic and bill number, each containing a brief summary of the proposal. Two indexes are provided to assist users in finding the legislative information they may be seeking.
 
Because of the abbreviated legislative session due to COVID-19, the Digest of Bills Passed is much smaller than previous years. The booklet highlights 17 bills approved by both the Illinois Senate and House, with all the measures already signed into law by Governor JB Pritzker.
 
A chart indicating what actions the governor can take on legislation and a breakdown of how to determine when a bill will take effect is also provided.
 
The Digest is available online and will be mailed to member districts in August.
