[ARCHIVED] New Laws for 2023

More than 180 new laws are set to take effect on Jan. 1, 2023, covering a range of issues big and small that affect Illinois residents. Some of the new laws include:

  • The Safe-T Act eliminates the cash bail system and evaluates "pre-trial detention" based on "community risk" rather than finances.
  • Women who have a miscarriage, other diagnosis or event that impacts pregnancy or fertility, or death of a family member can take 10 days of unpaid leave.
  • Any smoke detectors must have a self-contained, non-removable, long term battery. 
  • The vehicle registration fee for cars and small trucks will be reduced if the vehicle was manufactured in Illinois.
