(30 ILCS 212/2)
    Sec. 2. Policy. The State Treasurer has been granted authority to enter into banking service agreements with financial institutions to carry out his or her constitutional and statutory responsibilities. Public entities have traditionally paid for services rendered pursuant to such agreements through the deposit of funds in those institutions. This method of compensation is generally inefficient and may result in overcompensation of financial institutions. It is in the public interest to pay financial institutions at a level commensurate with the services provided.
