(30 ILCS 235/8)
    Sec. 8. Consideration of financial institution's commitment to its community.
    (a) In addition to any other requirements of this Act, a public agency is authorized to consider the financial institution's record and current level of financial commitment to its local community when deciding whether to deposit public funds in that financial institution. The public agency may consider factors including, but not necessarily limited to:
        (1) for financial institutions subject to the federal
Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, the current and historical ratings that the financial institution has received, to the extent that those ratings are publicly available, under the federal Community Reinvestment Act of 1977;
        (2) any changes in ownership, management, policies,
or practices of the financial institution that may affect the level of the financial institution's commitment to its community;
        (3) the financial impact that the withdrawal or
denial of deposits of public funds might have on the financial institution;
        (4) the financial impact to the public agency as a
result of withdrawing public funds or refusing to deposit additional public funds in the financial institution; and
        (5) any additional burden on the resources of the
public agency that might result from ceasing to maintain deposits of public funds at the financial institution under consideration.
    (b) Nothing in this Section shall be construed as authorizing the public agency to conduct an examination or investigation of a financial institution or to receive information that is not publicly available and the disclosure of which is otherwise prohibited by law.
