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 390/8

    (815 ILCS 390/8) (from Ch. 21, par. 208)
    Sec. 8. (a) Every license issued by the Comptroller shall state the number of the license, the business name and address of the licensee's principal place of business, each branch location also operating under the license, and the licensee's parent company, if any. The license shall be conspicuously posted in each place of business operating under the license. The Comptroller may issue additional licenses as may be necessary for license branch locations upon compliance with the provisions of this Act governing an original issuance of a license for each new license.
    (b) Individual salespersons representing a licensee shall not be required to obtain licenses in their individual capacities but must acknowledge, by affidavit, that they have been provided a copy of and have read this Act. The licensee must retain copies of the affidavits of its salespersons for its records and must make the affidavits available to the Comptroller for examination upon request.
    (c) The licensee shall be responsible for the activities of any person representing the licensee in selling or offering a pre-need contract for sale.
    (d) Any person not selling on behalf of a licensee shall be required to obtain his or her own license.
    (e) Any person engaged in pre-need sales, as defined herein, prior to the effective date of this Act may continue operations until the application for license under this Act is denied; provided that such person shall make application for a license within 60 days of the date that application forms are made available by the Comptroller.
    (f) No license shall be transferable or assignable without the express written consent of the Comptroller. A transfer of more than 50% of the ownership of any business licensed hereunder shall be deemed to be an attempted assignment of the license originally issued to the licensee for which consent of the Comptroller shall be required.
    (g) Every license issued hereunder shall be renewed every 5 years for a fee of $100. The renewal fee shall be deposited into the Comptroller's Administrative Fund. The Comptroller, upon the request of an interested person or on his own motion, may issue new licenses to a licensee whose license or licenses have been revoked, if no factor or condition then exists which would have warranted the Comptroller in refusing originally the issuance of such license.
