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 40/20-20)
    Sec. 20-20. Liquidation expenses; Asset Preservation Account.
    (a) The Trustee shall pay from the Trust Account all reasonable expenses incurred by the trustee on or after the date of failure in reference to seizing, preserving, and liquidating the grain assets, equity assets, collateral, and guarantees of or relating to a failed licensee, including, but not limited to, the hiring of temporary field personnel, equipment rental, auction expenses, mandatory commodity check-offs, and clerical expenses.
    (b) Except as to claimants holding valid claims, any outstanding indebtedness of a failed licensee that has accrued before the date of failure shall not be paid by the Trustee and shall represent a separate cause of action of the creditor against the failed licensee.
    (c) The Trustee shall report all expenditures paid from the Trust Account to the Corporation at least annually.
    (d) To the extent assets are available under subsection (g) of Section 25-20 and upon presentation of documentation satisfactory to the Trustee, the Trustee shall transfer from the Trust Account to the Regulatory Fund an amount not to exceed the expenses incurred by the Department in performance of its duties under Article 20 of this Code, in reference to the failed licensee.
    (e) The Department shall establish and maintain an Asset Preservation Account as provided in Section 205-410 of the Department of Agriculture Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois that shall contain a maximum of $50,000. The funds in the Asset Preservation Account are to be used solely by the Trustee for the reasonable expenses incurred by the Department on or after the date of failure for preserving and liquidating grain assets, equity assets, collateral, and guarantees of or relating to a failed licensee, provided that the Department has made a determination that the benefit of preserving and liquidating the grain assets, equity assets, collateral, and guarantees exceeds the anticipated costs of the preservation and liquidation, and only to the extent that all liquid and available moneys in the Grain Indemnity Trust Account relating to the particular failure have been exhausted. The Asset Preservation Account shall be funded by the income earned on the assets in the Fund. The income must be transferred to the Asset Preservation Account on a monthly basis, within 10 business days after the end of each calendar month, and to the extent necessary to maintain the $50,000 balance. The Trustee, or his or her designee, must file a report of all receipts by and disbursements from the Asset Preservation Account with the Board prior to each meeting of the Board.
