Illinois recently passed a bill allowing process servers access to gated communities.
Filed in February, SB 3286 moved quickly through the legislative process. The bill passed both Houses on May 21st and was sent to the Governor to be signed on June 19th.
The Illinois Association of Professional Process Servers (ILAPPS) has supported the passing of this bill throughout the process, and believe the bill will help to avoid obstruction of justice, make service of process more efficient and provide clear instructions to gated community employees and local law enforcement, all while making sure Illinois’ residents are given the right to respond to papers involving them.
Congratulations to ILAPPS and all Illinois process servers!
