Laws of Illinois Indexes
Each individual volume of the Laws of Illinois has a separate index, to the laws that were enacted during a legislative session. However, it is much easier to research an issue using cumulative indexes. Several cumulative indexes to the laws of Illinois have been published. They include:
Gross, Eugene L. and Gross, William L. An index to all the laws of the State of Illinois, 1818 to 1869, both public and private, which are not printed at large in Gross' Statutes of 1869, except private acts of 1869. Springfield [Ill.]: E.L. & W.L. Gross, 1869.
