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.

    Sec. 5.5. Replacement of articles or property; insurance. In the event that any articles or property pledged are lost or rendered inoperable, the pawnbroker shall replace the articles or property with identical articles or property, except that if the pawnbroker cannot reasonably obtain identical articles or property, the pawnbroker shall replace the articles or property with like articles or property.
    No pawnbroker shall conduct business in this State, unless the pawnbroker maintains insurance coverage covering all hazards equal to at least 2 times the aggregate value of the outstanding loans for items held in pawn. Such insurance shall be obtained from an insurance company authorized to do business in Illinois.
    The pawnbroker shall file a copy of proof of insurance coverage with the Secretary. A pawnbroker or an insurance company shall not cancel the insurance coverage except upon notice to the Secretary by certified mail, return receipt requested. The cancellation is not effective prior to 30 days after the Secretary receives the notice.
