Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (625 ILCS 5/7-214) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 7-214)
    Sec. 7-214. Disposition of security. Such security shall be applicable only to the payment of a judgment or judgments, rendered against the person or persons on whose behalf the deposit was made, for damages arising out of the crash in question, in an action at law, begun not later than the later of (i) the expiration of the relevant statute of limitations or (ii) 2 years after the date of any default in any payment under an installment agreement for payment of damages, and such deposit or any balance thereof shall be returned to the depositor or his or her personal representative when evidence satisfactory to the Secretary of State has been filed with him:
        1. that there has been a release from liability, or
a final adjudication of non-liability; or
        2. a duly acknowledged written agreement in
accordance with Section 7-208 of this Act; or
        3. whenever after the expiration of the statute of
limitations or (ii) 2 years after the date of any default in any payment under an installment agreement for payment of damages, the Secretary of State shall be given reasonable evidence that there is no such action pending and no judgment rendered in such action left unpaid.
    If, after releasing security to a judgment debtor or claimant, the balance of the security posted with the Secretary is $5 or less, the balance shall be transferred to the General Revenue Fund. The Secretary shall compile a list of all security amounts of $5 or less annually in July and shall certify that amount to the State Comptroller. As soon as possible after receiving the certification, the State Comptroller shall order transferred and the State Treasurer shall transfer the amount certified to the General Revenue Fund.
