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.

appropriate with regard to the failure of any licensee, including but not limited to analyzing the causes of and reasons for the failure; determining the adequacy and accuracy of Department examinations and other regulatory measures with regard to the failed licensee; and analyzing whether the handling of the liquidation and payment process by the Department was done in a manner that served the interests of those persons whose interests this Code was designed to protect.
        (11) To have those powers that are necessary or
appropriate for the exercise of the powers specifically conferred upon the Corporation and all incidental powers that are customary in corporations.
