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

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.

Code, to act as the agent for any fire, life, or other insurance company authorized by the State of Illinois, by soliciting and selling insurance and collecting premiums on policies issued by such company; and may receive for services so rendered such fees or commissions as may be agreed upon between the said corporate fiduciary and the insurance company for which it may act as agent; provided, however, that no such corporate fiduciary shall in any case assume or guarantee the payment of any premium on insurance policies issued through its agency by its principal; and provided further, that the corporate fiduciary shall not guarantee the truth of any statement made by an assured in filing his application for insurance.
The Commissioner may specify powers of corporate fiduciaries generally
or of a particular corporate fiduciary and
by rule or order limit or restrict such powers of corporate
fiduciaries or a particular corporate fiduciary if he finds the exercise of
such power by corporate fiduciaries generally or of the corporate
fiduciary in particular may tend to be an unsafe or unsound practice, or if
such power is otherwise not in the interest of beneficiaries of
any fiduciary appointment.
