There is no specific law in Illinois regarding the release of helium balloons.

It may violate the Illinois Litter Control Act, but I am not aware of any balloon releases prompting prosecution under those laws.

There are certain states which do have such laws, CA and FL, for examples, but Illinois is not counted in their number.
