(15 ILCS 520/12) (from Ch. 130, par. 31)
    Sec. 12. All securities deposited by approved banks or savings and loan associations under the provisions of this Act shall remain the property of the banks or savings and loan associations depositing such securities. Should the depositary refuse or fail to pay over the moneys, or any part thereof, deposited with it when due and payable, the State Treasurer may sell such securities in accordance with the terms of any agreement between the State Treasurer and the depositary bank or savings and loan association or, if applicable, institute suit on the bond. If a depositary fails or suspends active operations, the deposit in such depositary shall become due and payable immediately, any agreement or contract to the contrary notwithstanding. Such sale shall transfer absolute ownership of the securities so sold to the vendee thereof. The surplus, if any, over the amount due to the State and the expenses of the sale shall be paid to the depositary. Actions may be brought in the name of the People of the State of Illinois to enforce the claims of the State with respect to any securities deposited by an approved bank or savings and loan association.
