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.

760 ILCS 100/10

    (760 ILCS 100/10) (from Ch. 21, par. 64.10)
    Sec. 10. Upon receipt of such application for license, the Comptroller shall issue a license to the applicant unless the Comptroller determines that:
    (a) The applicant has made any misrepresentations or false statements or has concealed any essential or material fact, or
    (b) The applicant is insolvent; or
    (c) The applicant is or has been using practices in the conducting of the cemetery business that work or tend to work a fraud; or
    (d) The applicant has refused to furnish or give pertinent data to the Comptroller; or
    (e) The applicant has failed to notify the Comptroller with respect to any material facts required in the application for license under the provisions of this Act; or
    (f) The applicant has failed to satisfy any enforceable judgment entered by the circuit court in any civil proceedings against such applicant; or
    (g) The applicant has conducted or is about to conduct its business in a fraudulent manner; or
    (h) The applicant or any individual listed in the license application has conducted or is about to conduct any business on behalf of the applicant in a fraudulent manner; or has been convicted of a felony or any misdemeanor of which an essential element is fraud; or has been involved in any civil litigation in which a judgment has been entered against him or her based on fraud; or has failed to satisfy any enforceable judgment entered by the circuit court in any civil proceedings against such individual; or has been convicted of any felony of which fraud is an essential element; or has been convicted of any theft-related offense; or has failed to comply with the requirements of this Act; or has demonstrated a pattern of improperly failing to honor a contract with a consumer; or
    (i) The applicant has ever had a license involving cemeteries or funeral homes revoked, suspended, or refused to be issued in Illinois or elsewhere.
    If the Comptroller so determines, then he or she shall conduct a hearing to determine whether to deny the application. However, no application shall be denied unless the applicant has had at least 10 days' notice of a hearing on the application and an opportunity to be heard thereon. If the application is denied, the Comptroller shall within 20 days thereafter prepare and keep on file in his or her office the transcript of the evidence taken and a written order of denial thereof, which shall contain his or her findings with respect thereto and the reasons supporting the denial, and shall send by United States mail a copy of the written order of denial to the applicant at the address set forth in the application, within 5 days after the filing of such order. A review of such decision may be had as provided in Section 20 of this Act.
    The license issued by the Comptroller shall remain in full force and effect until it is surrendered by the licensee or revoked by the Comptroller as hereinafter provided.
