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.

815 ILCS 315/2

    (815 ILCS 315/2) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 1902)
    Sec. 2. A merchant may offer check cashing services, in the course of such business and only as an incident thereto, and may charge fees for each check cashed provided that the check cashing services are incidental to the main business of the merchant. However, check cashing services shall not include any transaction where a customer presents a check for the exact amount of any purchase. The fees charged shall not exceed the greater of $.50 or 1% of the face value of the check cashed. No license shall be required as a condition for providing such services. This Act does not affect the applicability of Sections 2 and 29 of "An Act in relation to the definition, licensing and regulation of community currency exchanges and ambulatory currency exchanges, and the operators and employees thereof, and to make an appropriation therefor, and to provide penalties and remedies for the violation thereof", approved June 30, 1943, as amended, to any activity of a merchant which is not expressly authorized by this Act.
