Freedom of Information Act Requests

The Illinois Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 ILCS 140) is designed to ensure that the public has reasonable access to information about its State and local government. FOIA sets forth the procedure for public requests to inspect or receive copies of records.

The Illinois Liquor Control Commission makes available to any person for inspection or copying all non-exempt public records. Written Freedom of Information request are promptly responded to, indicating compliance or denial to the request within 5 business days (excluding weekends and State Holidays). In certain circumstances, the ILCC may take up to an additional 5 business days to collect and prepare public records. Responses to requests made for a commercial purpose, however, may take up to 21 days or longer. All requests for records will be responded to promptly. Documents provided as part of a FOIA request will be provided as is without any explanation.

Any person may complete a Freedom of Information Act Request form, requesting any non-exempt public records of the ILCC. The form is NOT required to submit a FOIA request, but is available as a resource for anyone who wants to request records from the ILCC.
