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 10/19

    (240 ILCS 10/19) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 137)
    Sec. 19. Penalty. Any person who engages in business as a personal property warehouseman without securing a license or who does not have a valid license, or who commits one or more Category II or Category III violations of this Act, or who shall impede, obstruct, hinder or otherwise prevent or attempt to prevent the Commission in the performance of its duty in connection with this Act, or who refuses to permit inspection of his premises or records as provided in this Act shall be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor for the first violation, and be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor for each subsequent violation. In addition, the Commission may impose civil penalties in the amount provided under the Illinois Commercial Transportation Law. In case of a continuing violation or violations, each day that each violation occurs constitutes a separate and distinct offense.
    It shall be the duty of each State's Attorney to whom any violation is reported to cause appropriate proceedings to be instituted and prosecuted in the circuit court without delay, provided that the Commission has previously given the warehouseman involved an administrative hearing as provided for in this Act.
    The Commission may apply for and the circuit court may grant a temporary restraining order or preliminary or permanent injunction restraining any person from committing or continuing to commit a Category II or III violation.
