On August 15, 2016, the Illinois Supreme Court amended Rule 367, which guides a party's request for a rehearing in either the Illinois Supreme Court or Illinois Appellate Court.
Subsection (c) of the rule was amended to account for the new address of the Reporter of Decisions, which now is 301 N. 2nd Street, Springfield, IL 62702. The amended Rule 367(c) now reads:
"The number of copies of the petition, and of any answer or reply (see paragraph (d)), the form, cover and service shall conform to the requirements for briefs (see Rule 341), except that, in the Supreme Court, petitions for rehearing shall be delivered or mailed by first-class mail or delivered by third-party commercial carrier, and a copy of the petition or any motion seeking to change the time for filing the petition shall also be delivered or mailed by first-class mail or delivered by third-party commercial carrier to the Reporter of Decisions, 301 N. 2nd Street, Springfield, IL 62702, and a certificate of mailing or delivery shall be supplied to the clerk of the Supreme Court."
The amendment became effective immediately, and the order can be found here
