INDEX TO THE TRANSCRIPTS OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE SIXTH ILLINOIS CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION

Published by Marc MkKoy
The Sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention completed its deliberations almost
eighteen years ago, but interest in its debates remains strong. Legislators,
attorneys, and scholars continue to consult Convention proceedings for the intent
behind the provisions of the 1970 Illinois Constitution.
The Illinois State Library has long been concerned with rendering assistance to these
and other researchers. In 1972, it published a two-part index to the preliminary
transcripts of the Constitution Convention. Part I was arranged by subject, Part
II by Constitution article and section. These indexes provided temporary access to
the Convention Proceedings prior to completion of the final written version.
In July of 1972, the Office of the Secretary of State published a seven volume Record
of Proceedings (of the) Sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention. Volumes II through
V contain the verbatim transcripts of the floor deliberations. Although this final
edition includes a subject index to the verbatim transcripts, it does not provide
access to debates by Constitution articles and section number. In order to fill that
need, the Illinois State Library is issuing this revised version of Part II of its 1972
index, now keyed to the printed volumes, in the hope that it will prove useful to
lawyers, judges, and others studying the Illinois Constitution. For details on
content and arrangement, see “How to Use This Index”.
Note: The 1988 index was retyped in 2004 by the Legislative Research Unit, with
typographical errors and stylistic inconsistencies corrected. The following specific changes
in 2004 should be noted:
(1) The 1988 index has two pages numbered 63. In this version they have been
numbered “63A” and “63B” to preserve the numbering of later pages.
(2) The 1972 and 1988 indexes omit the constitutional convention history of Article VII,
subsection 6(l). That information has been supplied in this version.
(3) On some pages of the 1988 index, footnotes designated “*” or “**” lack
corresponding marks at the places in the text to which they refer. Those missing
footnote marks have been supplied in this version. Also, all footnotes have been
moved from within the text (where the 1988 version put them) to the bottoms of the
pages to which they apply.
(4) The 1988 index put Article IV, subsection 5(a) (Frequency of Sessions) after
subsection 3(a). It has been moved to its proper location.
(5) A table of contents listing each article and section of the 1970 Constitution has been
added, beginning on page i. It is hyperlinked to the 1988 index.
