    Sec. 1.25. List of corporations; exchange of information.
    (a) The Secretary of State shall publish each year a list of corporations filing an annual report for the preceding year in accordance with the provisions of this Act, which report shall state the name of the corporation and the respective names and addresses of the president, secretary, and registered agent thereof and the address of the registered office in this State of each such corporation. The Secretary of State shall furnish without charge a copy of such report to each recorder of this State, and to each member of the General Assembly and to each State agency or department requesting the same. The Secretary of State shall, upon receipt of a written request and a fee as determined by the Secretary, furnish such report to anyone else.
    (b) (1) The Secretary of State shall publish daily a list of all newly formed corporations, business and not for profit, chartered by him on that day issued after receipt of the application. The daily list shall contain the same information as to each corporation as is provided for the corporation list published under subsection (a) of this Section. The daily list may be obtained at the Secretary's office by any person, newspaper, State department or agency, or local government for a reasonable charge to be determined by the Secretary. Inspection of the daily list may be made at the Secretary's office during normal business hours without charge by any person, newspaper, State department or agency, or local government.
    (2) The Secretary shall compile the daily list mentioned in paragraph (1) of subsection (b) of this Section monthly, or more often at the Secretary's discretion. The compilation shall be immediately mailed free of charge to all local governments requesting in writing receipt of such publication, or shall be automatically mailed by the Secretary without charge to local governments as determined by the Secretary. The Secretary shall mail a copy of the compilations free of charge to all State departments or agencies making a written request. A request for a compilation of the daily list once made by a local government or State department or agency need not be renewed. However, the Secretary may request from time to time whether the local governments or State departments or agencies desire to continue receiving the compilation.
    (3) The compilations of the daily list mentioned in paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of this Section shall be mailed to newspapers, or any other person not included as a recipient in paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of this Section, upon receipt of a written application signed by the applicant and accompanied by the payment of a fee as determined by the Secretary.
    (c) If a domestic or foreign corporation has filed with the Secretary of State an annual report for the preceding year or has been newly formed or is otherwise and in any manner registered with the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State shall exchange with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services any information concerning that corporation that may be necessary for the enforcement of child support orders entered pursuant to the Illinois Public Aid Code, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, the Non-Support of Spouse and Children Act, the Non-Support Punishment Act, the Revised Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984, or the Illinois Parentage Act of 2015.
    Notwithstanding any provisions in this Act to the contrary, the Secretary of State shall not be liable to any person for any disclosure of information to the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Illinois Department of Public Aid) under this subsection or for any other action taken in good faith to comply with the requirements of this subsection.
