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.

205 ILCS 305/16.1

    (205 ILCS 305/16.1)
    Sec. 16.1. Service to the economically disadvantaged.
    (a) Persons who reside in investment areas as defined in the Community Development Banking and Financial Institutions Act of 1994 (12 U.S.C. 4702) and identified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury may be admitted to membership in a credit union that serves the area by maintaining a facility in the area. For purposes of this Section, a "facility" means a credit union owned branch, a shared branch, an office operated on a regularly scheduled weekly basis, or a credit union owned electronic facility that meets, at a minimum, the requirements of accepting shares for members' accounts, accepting loan applications and disbursing loans, but does not include an ATM.
    (b) Credit unions desiring to serve the economically disadvantaged in accordance with this Section shall do so pursuant to a written business plan that shall document the fact that the area meets the criteria of this Section, identify the credit and depository needs of the area, identify the services to be delivered, and describe the manner in which the services will be delivered. The credit union shall regularly review the business plan to determine whether the area is being adequately served and shall provide to the Secretary periodic service status reports that describe how the needs of the area are being met.
