    I've done a little digging around and I seem to be stuck in a revovling door with my research on this matter. Some sites say it is and I have to identify and others say not its not, so my question is. Is Illinois a Stop and ID state? and if it is not, what is the code for reference when stopped by law enforment and asked or demanded that I ID myself?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No, you do not have to carry identification in Illinois unless you are driving. But the issue becomes....they're probably going to be in the process you were suspected of some sort of crime, whether real or just whatever they can use as an excuse. Ultimately, if they want to find out who you are, they'll do so anyway. So , your mileage my vary, but I'd just show the ID and then if you're questioned or arrested, do not speak until you have an attorney .
