The Governor has signed P.A. 103-004 into law, which law amends a number of state statutes, including statutes relating to the state energy code, sports wagering, court fees, and various others. One provision that will be of interest to local governments is the extension of the previous amendment to the Illinois Liquor Control Act that authorized the delivery and carry out of mixed drinks until August 1, 2028 – this “cocktails to go” enactment was set to expire in January of 2024, and now will extend for an additional four plus years.

We reported on the 2020 “cocktails to go” legislation here.
