(35 ILCS 505/3c) (from Ch. 120, par. 419b.1)
    Sec. 3c. No person shall act as a receiver of fuel within this State without first securing a license from the Department to act as a receiver of fuel.
    Application for such license shall be made to the Department upon blanks furnished by it. The application shall be signed and verified, and shall contain such information as the Department deems necessary. The applicant for a receiver's license shall also file with the Department a bond on a form to be approved by and with a surety or sureties satisfactory to the Department conditioned upon such applicant paying to the State of Illinois all monies becoming due by reason of the receipt of fuel by the applicant, together with all penalties and interest thereon. The Department shall fix the penalty of such bond in each case taking into consideration the amount of fuel expected to be sold, distributed and used by such applicant and the penalty fixed by the Department shall be such, as in its opinion, will protect the State of Illinois against failure to pay the tax imposed by Section 2a on fuel received in this State, but the amount of the penalty fixed by the Department shall not exceed twice the monthly amount that would be due in the event of a sale or use on all the fuel sold or used by the receiver inclusive of tax-free sales or use.
    Upon receipt of the application and bond in proper form, the Department shall issue to the applicant a license to act as a receiver. No person who is in default to the State for monies due under this Act for the receipt, sale, distribution or use of fuel or motor fuel shall receive a license either directly or indirectly to act as a receiver.
