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.

815 ILCS 605/10

    (815 ILCS 605/10) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 2110)
    Sec. 10. If a credit services organization is required to obtain a surety bond pursuant to paragraph (1) of Section 5 of this Act, the following procedures shall be applicable:
    (a) If a bond is obtained, a copy of it shall be filed with the Office of the Secretary of State.
    (b) The required bond shall be in favor of the State of Illinois for the benefit of any person who is damaged by any violation of this Act. The bond shall also be in favor of any person damaged by such practices. Any person claiming against the bond for a violation of this Act may maintain an action at law against the credit services organization and against the surety. The surety shall be liable only for actual damages and not the punitive damages permitted under Section 11(b) of this Act. The aggregate liability of the surety to all persons damaged by a credit services organization's violation of this Act shall in no event exceed the amount of the bond.
    (c) The bond shall be in the amount of $100,000 and shall be maintained for a period of 2 years after the date that the credit services organization ceases operations.
