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.

240 ILCS 10/12

    (240 ILCS 10/12) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 130)
    Sec. 12. Advertisements. It is unlawful for any person, firm, partnership, association, limited liability company, or corporation to hold himself, themselves, or itself out as a warehouseman or advertise for, or solicit business as a warehouseman without first complying with this Act; or advertising as being an insured warehouse unless the insurance is for the benefit of the depositor against fire or other casualties; or to use any stationery, cards, signs or other advertisements of a false, fraudulent, deceptive or misleading nature; or use the word storage, in any way, in connection with the business unless engaged in the storage business and licensed as a warehouse operator under this Act.
    A personal property warehouseman has authority to use the services of warehouse representatives or warehouse brokers in Illinois provided the names and addresses of such warehouse representatives or warehouse brokers are listed on the license application of the personal property warehouseman.
    No person shall set himself out to be a warehouse representative or a warehouse broker, or do business as such, without first being so listed by a duly licensed warehouseman. A warehouseman may, by giving written notice in duplicate to the Commission, amend his license application at any time to add or delete the name or names of warehouse representatives or warehouse brokers retained by him.
