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.

    (65 ILCS 5/8-13-11)
    Sec. 8-13-11. Liens for obligations.
    (a) As used in this Section, "statutory lien" has the meaning given to that term under 11 U.S.C. 101(53) of the federal Bankruptcy Code.
    (b) Obligations issued by an issuing entity shall be secured by a statutory lien on the transferred receipts received, or entitled to be received, by the issuing entity that are designated as pledged for such obligations. The statutory lien shall automatically attach from the time the obligations are issued without further action or authorization by the issuing entity or any other entity, person, governmental authority, or officer. The statutory lien shall be valid and binding from the time the obligations are executed and delivered without any physical delivery thereof or further act required, and shall be a first priority lien unless the obligations, or documents authorizing the obligations or providing a source of payment or security for those obligations, shall otherwise provide.
    The transferred receipts received or entitled to be received shall be immediately subject to the statutory lien from the time the obligations are issued, and the statutory lien shall automatically attach to the transferred receipts (whether received or entitled to be received by the issuing entity) and be effective, binding, and enforceable against the issuing entity, the transferring unit, the State entity, the State of Illinois, and their agents, successors, and transferees, and creditors, and all others asserting rights therein or having claims of any kind in tort, contract, or otherwise, irrespective of whether those parties have notice of the lien and without the need for any physical delivery, recordation, filing, or further act.
    The statutory lien imposed by this Section is automatically released and discharged with respect to amounts of transferred receipts reconveyed to the transferring unit pursuant to Section 8-13-10 of this Code, effective upon such reconveyance.
    (c) The statutory lien provided in this Section is separate from and shall not affect any special revenues lien or other protection afforded to special revenue obligations under the federal Bankruptcy Code.
