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.

30 ILCS 235/8

    (30 ILCS 235/8)
    Sec. 8. Consideration of financial institution's commitment to its community.
    (a) In addition to any other requirements of this Act, a public agency shall consider the financial institution's record and current level of financial commitment to its local community when deciding whether to deposit public funds in that financial institution. The public agency may consider factors including, but not necessarily limited to:
        (1) for financial institutions subject to the federal
Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, the current and historical ratings that the financial institution has received, to the extent that those ratings are publicly available, under the federal Community Reinvestment Act of 1977;
        (2) any changes in ownership, management, policies,
or practices of the financial institution that may affect the level of the financial institution's commitment to its community;
        (3) the financial impact that the withdrawal or
denial of deposits of public funds might have on the financial institution;
        (4) the financial impact to the public agency as a
result of withdrawing public funds or refusing to deposit additional public funds in the financial institution; and
        (5) any additional burden on the resources of the
public agency that might result from ceasing to maintain deposits of public funds at the financial institution under consideration.
    (a-5) Effective January 1, 2022, no public funds may be deposited in a financial institution subject to the federal Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 unless the institution has a current rating of satisfactory or outstanding under the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.
    (a-10) When investing or depositing public funds, the public agency may give preference to financial institutions that have a current rating of outstanding under the federal Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.
    (b) Nothing in this Section shall be construed as authorizing the public agency to conduct an examination or investigation of a financial institution or to receive information that is not publicly available and the disclosure of which is otherwise prohibited by law.
