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 705/15) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 1715)
    Sec. 15. Escrow of franchise fees; surety bonds; franchise fee deferrals. If the Administrator finds that a franchisor has failed to demonstrate that adequate financial arrangements have been made to fulfill obligations to provide real estate, improvements, equipment, inventory, training, or other items to be included in the establishment and opening of the franchise business being offered, the Administrator may by rule or order require the escrow or impoundment of franchise fees and other funds paid by the franchisee until such obligations have been fulfilled, or, at the option of the franchisor, the furnishing of a surety bond as provided by rule of the Administrator, if he finds that such requirement is necessary and appropriate to protect prospective franchisees, or, at the option of the franchisor, the deferral of payment of the initial fee until the opening of the franchise business.
