Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

The lien of such mortgage or deed of trust, as to third persons without actual notice thereof, shall be valid as to all such indebtedness and future advances from the time said mortgage or deed of trust is filed for record in the office of the Recorder of Deeds or the Registrar of Titles of the county where the real property described therein is located.

    (205 ILCS 5/6.1) (from Ch. 17, par. 313.1)
    Sec. 6.1. Non-recourse reverse mortgage loans.
    (a) It is the intent of this amendatory Act of 1991 that homeowners at least 62 years of age be permitted to meet their financial needs by accessing the equity in their homes through a reverse mortgage. The General Assembly recognizes that many restrictions and requirements that exist to govern traditional mortgage transactions are inapplicable in the context of reverse mortgages. In order to foster reverse mortgage transactions and better serve the citizens of this State, this Section authorizes the making of reverse mortgages, and expressly relieves reverse mortgage lenders and borrowers from compliance with inappropriate requirements.
    As used in this Section, "borrower" means any homeowner who is, or whose spouse is, at least 62 years of age.
    As used in this Section, "reverse mortgage" means a non-recourse loan, secured by real property, that complies with all of the following:
        (1) Provides cash advances to a borrower based on the
    
equity in a borrower's owner-occupied principal residence, provided that it is a residence designed to be occupied by not more than 4 families.
        (2) Requires no payment of principal or interest
    
until the entire loan becomes due and payable.
    (b) Reverse mortgage loans shall be subject only to all of the following provisions:
        (1) Payment, in whole or in part, shall be permitted
    
without penalty at any time during the term of the mortgage.
        (2) A reverse mortgage may provide for an interest
    
rate that is fixed or adjustable and may provide for interest that is contingent on appreciation in the value of the property.
        (3) If a reverse mortgage provides for periodic
    
advances to a borrower, the advances may not be reduced in amount or number based on any adjustment in the interest rate.
        (4) A reverse mortgage may be subject to any
    
additional terms and conditions imposed by a lender that are required under the provisions of the federal Housing and Community Development Act of 1987 to enable the lender to obtain federal government insurance on the mortgage if the loans are to be insured under that Act.
    (c) The repayment obligation under a reverse mortgage is subject to all of the following:
        (1) Temporary absences from the home not exceeding 60
    
consecutive days shall not cause the mortgage to become due and payable.
        (2) Temporary absences from the home exceeding 60
    
days, but not exceeding one year shall not cause the mortgage to become due and payable, provided that the borrower has taken action that secures the home in a manner satisfactory to the lender.
        (3) The lender must disclose any interest or other
    
fees to be charged during the period that commences on the date the mortgage becomes due and payable and ends when repayment in full is made in accordance with applicable State and federal laws, rules, and regulations.
    (d) A reverse mortgage shall become due and payable upon the occurrence of any of the following events:
        (1) The real property securing the loan is sold.
        (2) All borrowers cease to occupy the home as a
    
principal residence.
        (3) A fixed maturity date agreed to by the lender and
    
the borrower is reached.
        (4) An event that is specified in the loan documents
    
and that jeopardizes the lender's security occurs.
    (e) No reverse mortgage commitment may be made by a lender unless the loan applicant attests, in writing, that the applicant has received from the lender, at the time of initial inquiry, a statement prepared by the Department on Aging regarding the advisability and availability of independent information and counseling services on reverse mortgages.

The mortgagor must sign the disclosure document as part of the reverse mortgage transaction.

        (1) that the proposed capital at least meets the
    
minimum requirements of this Act determined by the Commissioner pursuant to Section 7 of this Act including additional capital necessitated by the circumstances of the proposed bank including its size, scope of operations and market in which it proposes to operate;
        (2) that the future earnings prospects are favorable;
        (3) that the general character, experience, and
    
qualifications of its proposed management and its proposed plan of operation are such as to assure reasonable promise of successful, safe and sound operation;
        (4) that the name of the proposed bank is not the
    
same as or deceptively similar to a name reserved with the Commissioner's office under Section 9.5 or to the name of any other bank then operating in this State; and

    (a) When the directors have organized as provided in Section 12 of this Act, and the capital stock and the preferred stock, if any, together with a surplus of not less than 50% of the capital, has been all fully paid in and a record of the same filed with the Commissioner, the Commissioner or some competent person of the Commissioner's appointment shall make a thorough examination into the affairs of the proposed bank, and if satisfied (i) that all the requirements of this Act have been complied with, (ii) that no intervening circumstance has occurred to change the Commissioner's findings made pursuant to Section 10 of this Act, and (iii) that the prior involvement by any stockholder who will own a sufficient amount of stock to have control, as defined in Section 18 of this Act, of the proposed bank with any other financial institution, whether as stockholder, director, officer, or customer, was conducted in a safe and sound manner, upon payment into the Commissioner's office of the reasonable expenses of the examination, as determined by the Commissioner, the Commissioner shall issue a charter authorizing the bank to commence business as authorized in this Act. All charters issued by the Commissioner or any predecessor agency which chartered State banks, including any charter outstanding as of September 1, 1989, shall be perpetual. For the 2 years after the Commissioner has issued a charter to a bank, the bank shall request and obtain from the Commissioner prior written approval before it may change senior management personnel or directors.
    The original charter, duly certified by the Commissioner, or a certified copy shall be evidence in all courts and places of the existence and authority of the bank to do business. Upon the issuance of the charter by the Commissioner, the bank shall be deemed fully organized and may proceed to do business. The Commissioner may, in the Commissioner's discretion, withhold the issuing of the charter when the Commissioner has reason to believe that the bank is organized for any purpose other than that contemplated by this Act. The Commissioner shall revoke the charter and order liquidation in the event that the bank does not commence a general banking business within one year from the date of the issuance of the charter, unless a request has been submitted, in writing, to the Commissioner for an extension and the request has been approved. After commencing a general banking business, a bank may change its name by filing written notice with the Commissioner at least 30 days prior to the effective date of such change. A bank chartered under this Act may change its main banking premises by filing written application with the Commissioner, on forms prescribed by the Commissioner, provided (i) the change shall not be a removal to a new location without complying with the capital requirements of Section 7 and of subsection (1) of Section 10 of this Act; (ii) the Commissioner approves the relocation or change; and (iii) the bank complies with any applicable federal law or regulation. The application shall be deemed to be approved if the Commissioner has not acted on the application within 30 days after receipt of the application, unless within the 30-day time frame the Commissioner informs the bank that an extension of time is necessary prior to the Commissioner's action on the application.
    (b)(1) The Commissioner may also issue a charter to a bank that is owned exclusively by other depository institutions or depository institution holding companies and is organized to engage exclusively in providing services to or for other financial institutions, their holding companies, and the officers, directors, and employees of such institutions and companies, and in providing services at the request of other financial institutions or their holding companies (also referred to as a "bankers' bank"). The bank may also provide products and services to its officers, directors, and employees.
    (2) A bank chartered pursuant to paragraph (1) shall, except as otherwise specifically determined or limited by the Commissioner in an order or pursuant to a rule, be vested with the same rights and privileges and subject to the same duties, restrictions, penalties, and liabilities now or hereafter imposed under this Act.
    (c) A bank chartered under this Act shall, at all times while it accepts or retains deposits, maintain with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or such other instrumentality of or corporation chartered by the United States, deposit insurance as authorized under federal law.
    (d)(i) A bank that has a banking charter issued by the Commissioner under this Act may, pursuant to a written purchase and assumption agreement, transfer substantially all of its assets to another State bank or national bank in consideration, in whole or in part, for the transferee banks' assumption of any part or all of its liabilities. Such a transfer shall in no way be deemed to impair the charter of the transferor bank or cause the transferor bank to forfeit any of its rights, powers, interests, franchises, or privileges as a State bank, nor shall any voluntary reduction in the transferor bank's activities resulting from the transfer have any such effect; provided, however, that a State bank that transfers substantially all of its assets pursuant to this subsection (d) and following the transfer does not accept deposits and make loans, shall not have any rights, powers, interests, franchises, or privileges under subsection (15) of Section 5 of this Act until the bank has resumed accepting deposits and making loans.
    (ii) The fact that a State bank does not resume accepting deposits and making loans for a period of 24 months commencing on September 11, 1989 or on a date of the transfer of substantially all of a State bank's assets, whichever is later, or such longer period as the Commissioner may allow in writing, may be the basis for a finding by the Commissioner under Section 51 of this Act that the bank is unable to continue operations.
    (iii) The authority provided by subdivision (i) of this subsection (d) shall terminate on May 31, 1997, and no bank that has transferred substantially all of its assets pursuant to this subsection (d) shall continue in existence after May 31, 1997.

not engage in the general banking business or any part thereof unless and until the interim bank becomes the resulting bank in a merger.
    (c) The merger agreement must be approved by all of the incorporators of the interim bank and must be approved by the existing State bank with which the interim bank will merge, as required by Section 22 of this Act.
    (d) Upon receipt of the application to organize the interim bank and the merger agreement submitted pursuant to this Section and Section 22 of this Act, the Commissioner may issue a charter to the interim bank and approve the merger agreement if the Commissioner makes the findings set forth in subsection (3) of Section 22 of this Act. The interim bank's charter shall not take effect until, and shall only be effective for purposes of, the merger.
    (e) Nothing in this Section affects the obligations of an existing State bank with which the interim bank will merge, or the rights of minority or dissenting shareholders of the existing State bank, in connection with the approval, execution, and accomplishment of a merger agreement as provided elsewhere in this Act.

    (205 ILCS 5/14) (from Ch. 17, par. 321)
    Sec. 14. Stock. Unless otherwise provided for in this Act provisions of general application to stock of a state bank shall be as follows:
    (1) All banks shall have their capital divided into shares of a par value of not less than $1 each and not more than $100 each, however, the par value of shares of a bank effecting a reverse stock split pursuant to item (8) of subsection (a) of Section 17 may temporarily exceed this limit provided it conforms to the limits immediately after the reverse stock split is completed. No issue of capital stock or preferred stock shall be valid until not less than the par value of all such stock so issued shall be paid in and notice thereof by the president, a vice-president or cashier of the bank has been transmitted to the Commissioner. In the case of an increase in capital stock by the declaration of a stock dividend, the capitalization of retained earnings effected by such stock dividend shall constitute the payment for such shares required by the preceding sentence, provided that the surplus of said bank after such stock dividend shall be at least equal to fifty per cent of the capital as increased. The charter shall not limit or deny the voting power of the shares of any class of stock except as provided in Section 15(3) of this Act.
    (2) Pursuant to action taken in accordance with the requirements of Section 17, a bank may issue preferred stock of one or more classes as shall be approved by the Commissioner as hereinafter provided, and make such amendment to its charter as may be necessary for this purpose; but in the case of any newly organized bank which has not yet issued capital stock the requirements of Section 17 shall not apply.
    (3) Without limiting the authority herein contained a bank, when so provided in its charter and when approved by the Commissioner, may issue shares of preferred stock:
        (a) Subject to the right of the bank to redeem any of
    
such shares at not exceeding the price fixed by the charter for the redemption thereof;
        (b) Subject to the provisions of subsection (8) of
    
this Section 14 entitling the holders thereof to cumulative or noncumulative dividends;
        (c) Having preference over any other class or classes
    
of shares as to the payment of dividends;
        (d) Having preference as to the assets of the bank
    
over any other class or classes of shares upon the voluntary or involuntary liquidation of the bank;
        (e) Convertible into shares of any other class of
    
stock, provided that preferred shares shall not be converted into shares of a different par value unless that part of the capital of the bank represented by such preferred shares is at the time of the conversion equal to the aggregate par value of the shares into which the preferred shares are to be converted.
    (4) If any part of the capital of a bank consists of preferred stock, the determination of whether or not the capital of such bank is impaired and the amount of such impairment shall be based upon the par value of its stock even though the amount which the holders of such preferred stock shall be entitled to receive in the event of retirement or liquidation shall be in excess of the par value of such preferred stock.
    (5) Pursuant to action taken in accordance with the requirements of Section 17 of this Act, a state bank may provide for a specified number of authorized but unissued shares of capital stock for one or more of the following purposes:
        (a) Reserved for issuance under stock option plan or
    
plans to directors, officers or employees;
        (b) Reserved for issuance upon conversion of
    
convertible preferred stock issued pursuant to and in compliance with the provisions of subsections (2) and (3) of this Section 14.
        (c) Reserved for issuance upon conversion of
    
convertible debentures or other convertible evidences of indebtedness issued by a state bank, provided always that the terms of such conversion have been approved by the Commissioner;
        (d) Reserved for issuance by the declaration of a
    
stock dividend. If and when any shares of capital stock are proposed to be authorized and reserved for any of the purposes set forth in subparagraphs (a), (b) or (c) above, the notice of the meeting, whether special or annual, of stockholders at which such proposition is to be considered shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth or summarizing the terms upon which the shares of capital stock so reserved are to be issued, and the extent to which any preemptive rights of stockholders are inapplicable to the issuance of the shares so reserved or to the convertible preferred stock or convertible debentures or other convertible evidences of indebtedness, and the approving vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote at such meeting of the terms of such issuance shall be requisite for the adoption of any amendment providing for the reservation of authorized but unissued shares for any of said purposes. Nothing in this subsection (5) contained shall be deemed to authorize the issuance of any capital stock for a consideration less than the par value thereof.
    (6) Upon written application to the Commissioner 60 days prior to the proposed purchase and receipt of the written approval of the Commissioner, a state bank may purchase and hold as treasury stock such amounts of the total number of issued and outstanding shares of its capital and preferred stock outstanding as the Commissioner determines is consistent with safety and soundness of the bank. The Commissioner may specify the manner of accounting for the treasury stock and the form of notice prior to ultimate disposition of the shares. Except as authorized in this subsection, it shall not be lawful for a state bank to purchase or hold any additional such shares or securities described in subsection (2) of Section 37 unless necessary to prevent loss upon a debt previously contracted in good faith, in which event such shares or securities so purchased or acquired shall, within 6 months from the time of purchase or acquisition, be sold or disposed of at public or private sale. Any state bank which intends to purchase and hold treasury stock as authorized in this subsection (6) shall file a written application with the Commissioner 60 days prior to any such proposed purchase. The application shall state the number of shares to be purchased, the consideration for the shares, the name and address of the person from whom the shares are to be purchased, if known, and the total percentage of its issued and outstanding shares to be held by the bank after the purchase. The total consideration paid by a state bank for treasury stock shall reduce capital and surplus of the bank for purposes of Sections of this Act relating to lending and investment limits which require computation of capital and surplus. After considering and approving an application to purchase and hold treasury stock under this subsection, the Commissioner may waive or reduce the balance of the 60 day application period. The Commissioner may specify the form of the application for approval to acquire treasury stock and promulgate rules and regulations for the administration of this subsection (6). A state bank may acquire or resell its own shares as treasury stock pursuant to this subsection (6) without a change in its charter pursuant to Section 17. Such stock may be held for any purpose permitted in subsection (5) of this Section 14 or may be resold upon such reasonable terms as the board of directors may determine provided notice is given to the Commissioner prior to the resale of such stock.
    (7) During the time that a state bank shall continue its banking business, it shall not withdraw or permit to be withdrawn, either in the form of dividends or otherwise, any portion of its capital, but nothing in this subsection shall prevent a reduction or change of the capital stock or the preferred stock under the provisions of Sections 17 through 30 of this Act, a purchase of treasury stock under the provisions of subsection (6) of this Section 14 or a redemption of preferred stock pursuant to charter provisions therefor.
    (8) (a) Subject to the provisions of this Act, the board
    
of directors of a state bank from time to time may declare a dividend of so much of the net profits of such bank as it shall judge expedient, but each bank before the declaration of a dividend shall carry at least one-tenth of its net profits since the date of the declaration of the last preceding dividend, or since the issuance of its charter in the case of its first dividend, to its surplus until the same shall be equal to its capital.
        (b) No dividends shall be paid by a state bank while
    
it continues its banking business to an amount greater than its net profits then on hand, deducting first therefrom its losses and bad debts. All debts due to a state bank on which interest is past due and unpaid for a period of 6 months or more, unless the same are well secured and in the process of collection, shall be considered bad debts.
    (9) A State bank may, but shall not be obliged to, issue a certificate for a fractional share, and, by action of its board of directors, may in lieu thereof, pay cash equal to the value of the fractional share. A certificate for a fractional share shall entitle the holder to exercise fractional voting rights, to receive dividends, and to participate in any of the assets of the bank in the event of liquidation.

    Sec. 14.1. Quasi-Reorganization of Capital Upon a Change in Control. For the purposes of declaring dividends pursuant to Section 14(8)(b) of this Act, if a bank:
    (1) incurs a change in ownership of more than 50% of its voting stock; and
    (2) has a deficit in its net profits then on hand at the time of such change in ownership; and
    (3) receives the prior written approval of the Commissioner; such bank may restate its asset and liability accounts to fair value for the purpose of reorganizing the capital accounts of the bank so that net profits then on hand are restated to zero; provided that in no event may total capital be increased as a result of a capital reorganization made pursuant to this Section.

    (205 ILCS 5/15) (from Ch. 17, par. 322)
    Sec. 15. Stock and stockholders. Unless otherwise provided for in this Act, provisions of general application to capital stock, preferred stock, and stockholders of a State bank shall be as follows:
    (1) There shall be an annual meeting of the stockholders for the election of directors each year on the first business day in January, unless some other date shall be fixed by the by-laws. A special meeting of the stockholders may be called at any time by the board of directors, and otherwise as may be provided in the bylaws.
    (2) Written or printed notice stating the place, day, and hour of the meeting, and in case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be delivered not less than 10 nor more than 40 days before the date of the meeting either personally or by mail, by or at the direction of the president, or the secretary, or the officer or persons calling the meeting, to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting. If mailed, the notice shall be deemed to be delivered when deposited in the United States mail with postage thereon prepaid addressed to the stockholder at his address as it appears on the records of the bank.
    (3) Except as provided below in this paragraph (3), each outstanding share shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of stockholders. Shares of its own stock belonging to a bank shall not be voted, directly or indirectly, at any meeting and shall not be counted in determining the total number of outstanding shares at any given time, but shares of its own stock held by it in a fiduciary capacity may be voted and shall be counted in determining the total number of outstanding shares at any given time. A stockholder may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing by the stockholder or by his duly authorized attorney-in-fact. No proxy shall be valid after 11 months from the date of its execution, unless otherwise provided in the proxy. Except as provided below in this paragraph (3), in all elections for directors every stockholder (or subscriber to the stock prior to the issuance of a charter) shall have the right to vote, in person or by proxy, for the number of shares of stock owned by him, for as many persons as there are directors to be elected, or to cumulate the shares and give one candidate as many votes as the number of directors multiplied by the number of his or her shares of stock shall equal, or to distribute them on the same principle among as many candidates as he or she shall think fit. The bank charter of any bank organized on or after January 1, 1984 may limit or eliminate cumulative voting rights in all or specified circumstances, or may eliminate voting rights entirely, as to any class or classes or series of stock of the bank; provided that one class of shares or series thereof shall always have voting rights in respect of all matters in the bank. A bank organized prior to January 1, 1984 may amend its charter to eliminate cumulative voting rights under all or specified circumstances, or to eliminate voting rights entirely, as to any class or classes or series of stock of the bank; provided that one class of shares or series thereof shall always have voting rights in respect of all matters in the bank, and provided further that the proposal to eliminate the voting rights receives the approval of the holders of 70% of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote as provided in paragraph (b) (7) of Section 17. A majority of the outstanding shares represented in person or by proxy shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of stockholders. In the absence of a quorum a meeting may be adjourned from time to time without notice to the stockholders.
    (4) Whenever additional stock of a class is offered for sale, stockholders of record of the same class on the date of the offer shall have the right to subscribe to the proportion of the shares as the stock of the class held by them bears to the total of the outstanding stock of the class, and the price thereof may be in excess of par value. This right shall be transferable but shall terminate if not exercised within 60 days of the offer, unless the Commissioner shall authorize a shorter time. If the right is not exercised, the stock shall not be re-offered for sale to others at a lower price without the stockholders of the same class again being accorded a preemptive right to subscribe at the lower price. Notwithstanding any of the provisions of this paragraph (4) or any other provision of law, stockholders shall not have any preemptive or other right to subscribe for or to purchase or acquire shares of capital stock issued or to be issued under a stock-option plan or upon conversion of preferred stock or convertible debentures or other convertible indebtedness that has been approved by stockholders in the manner required by the provisions of subsection (5) of Section 14 hereof or to treasury stock acquired pursuant to subsection (6) of Section 14.
    (5) For the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders, or stockholders entitled to receive payment of any dividend, or in order to make a determination of stockholders for any other proper purpose, the board of directors of a bank may provide that the stock transfer books shall be closed for a stated period not to exceed, in any case, 40 days. In lieu of closing the stock transfer books, the board of directors may fix in advance a date as the record date for any determination of stockholders, the date in any case to be not more than 40 days, and in case of a meeting of stockholders, not less than 10 days prior to the date on which the particular action, requiring the determination of stockholders, is to be taken. If the stock transfer books are not closed and no record date is fixed for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders, or stockholders entitled to receive payment of a dividend, the date on which notice of a meeting is mailed or the date on which the resolution of the board of directors declaring the dividend is adopted, as the case may be, shall be the record date for the determination of stockholders.
    (6) Stock standing in the name of another corporation, domestic or foreign, may be voted by the officer, agent, or proxy as the by-laws of the corporation may prescribe, or, in the absence of such provision, as the board of directors of the corporation may determine. Stock standing in the name of a deceased person may be voted by his or her administrator or executor, either in person or by proxy. Stock standing in the name of a guardian or trustee may be voted by that fiduciary either in person or by proxy. Shares standing in the name of a receiver may be voted by the receiver, and shares held by or under control of a receiver may be voted by the receiver without the transfer thereof into his or her name if authority so to do be contained in an appropriate order of the court by which the receiver was appointed. A stockholder whose shares of stock are pledged shall be entitled to vote those shares until the shares have been transferred into the name of the pledgee, and thereafter the pledgee shall be entitled to vote the shares so transferred.
    (7) Shares of stock shall be transferable in accordance with the general laws of this State governing the transfer of corporate shares.
    (8) The president and any other officer designated by the board of directors of every State bank shall cause to be kept at all times a full and correct list of the names and residences of all the shareholders in the State bank and the number of shares held by each in the office where its business is transacted. The list shall be subject to the inspection of all the shareholders of the State bank and the officers authorized to assess taxes under State authority during business hours of each day in which business may be legally transacted. A copy of the list, verified by the oath of the president or cashier, shall be transmitted to the Commissioner of Banks and Real Estate within 10 days of any demand therefor made by the Commissioner.
    (9) Any number of shareholders of a bank may create a voting trust for the purpose of conferring upon a trustee or trustees the right to vote or otherwise represent their shares for a period of not to exceed 10 years by entering into a written voting trust agreement specifying the terms and conditions of the voting trust and by transferring their shares to the trustee or trustees for the purposes of the agreement. The trust agreement shall not become effective until a counterpart of the agreement is deposited with the bank at its main banking premises. The counterpart of the voting trust agreement so deposited with the bank shall be subject to the same right of examination by a shareholder of the bank, in person or by agent or attorney, as is the record of shareholders of the bank and shall be subject to examination by any holder of a beneficial interest in the voting trust, either in person or by agent or attorney, at any reasonable time for any proper purpose.
    (10) Voting agreements. Shareholders may provide for the voting of their shares by signing an agreement for that purpose. A voting agreement created under this paragraph is not subject to the provisions of paragraph (9).
    A voting agreement created under this paragraph is specifically enforceable in accordance with the principles of equity.

    (205 ILCS 5/16) (from Ch. 17, par. 323)
    Sec. 16. Directors. The business and affairs of a State bank shall be managed by its board of directors that shall exercise its powers as follows:
    (1) Directors shall be elected as provided in this Act. Any omission to elect a director or directors shall not impair any of the rights and privileges of the bank or of any person in any way interested. The existing directors shall hold office until their successors are elected and qualify.
    (2) (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of any charter
    
heretofore or hereafter issued, the number of directors, not fewer than 5 nor more than 25, may be fixed from time to time by the stockholders at any meeting of the stockholders called for the purpose of electing directors or changing the number thereof by the affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of the outstanding stock entitled to vote at the meeting, and the number so fixed shall be the board regardless of vacancies until the number of directors is thereafter changed by similar action.
        (b) Notwithstanding the minimum number of directors
    
specified in paragraph (a) of this subsection, a State bank that has been in existence for 10 years or more and has less than $20,000,000 in assets, as of the December 31 immediately preceding the annual meeting of shareholders at which directors are elected, may, subject to the approval of the Commissioner, have a minimum of 3 directors; provided that if a State bank has fewer than 5 directors, at least one director shall not be an officer or employee of the bank. The Commissioner shall annually review the appropriateness of the grant of authority to have a reduced minimum number of directors pursuant to this paragraph (b).
    (3) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph (3), directors shall hold office until the next annual meeting of the stockholders succeeding their election or until their successors are elected and qualify. If the board of directors consists of 6 or more members, in lieu of electing the membership of the whole board of directors annually, the charter or by-laws of a State bank may provide that the directors shall be divided into either 2 or 3 classes, each class to be as nearly equal in number as is possible. The term of office of directors of the first class shall expire at the first annual meeting of the stockholders after their election, that of the second class shall expire at the second annual meeting after their election, and that of the third class, if any, shall expire at the third annual meeting after their election. At each annual meeting after classification, the number of directors equal to the number of the class whose terms expire at the time of the meeting shall be elected to hold office until the second succeeding annual meeting, if there be 2 classes, or until the third succeeding annual meeting, if there be 3 classes. Vacancies may be filled by stockholders at a special meeting called for the purpose.
    If authorized by the bank's by-laws or an amendment thereto, the directors of a State bank may properly fill a vacancy or vacancies arising between shareholders' meetings, but at no time may the number of directors selected to fill a vacancy in this manner during any interim period between shareholders' meetings exceed 33 1/3% of the total membership of the board of directors.
    (4) The board of directors shall hold regular meetings at least once each month, provided that, upon prior written approval by the Commissioner, the board of directors may hold regular meetings less frequently than once each month but at least once each calendar quarter. A special meeting of the board of directors may be held as provided by the by-laws. A special meeting of the board of directors may also be held upon call by the Commissioner or a bank examiner appointed under the provisions of this Act upon not less than 12 hours notice of the meeting by personal service of the notice or by mailing the notice to each of the directors at his residence as shown by the books of the bank. A majority of the board of directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business unless a greater number is required by the charter or the by-laws. The act of the majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of the board of directors unless the act of a greater number is required by the charter or by the by-laws.
    (5) A member of the board of directors shall be elected president. The board of directors may appoint other officers, as the by-laws may provide, and fix their salaries to carry on the business of the bank. The board of directors may make and amend by-laws (not inconsistent with this Act) for the government of the bank and may, by the affirmative vote of a majority of the board of directors, establish reasonable compensation of all directors for services to the corporation as directors, officers, or otherwise. An officer, whether elected or appointed by the board of directors or appointed pursuant to the by-laws, may be removed by the board of directors at any time.
    (6) The board of directors shall cause suitable books and records of all the bank's transactions to be kept.
    (7) (a) In discharging the duties of their respective
    
positions, the board of directors, committees of the board, and individual directors may, in considering the best long term and short term interests of the bank, consider the effects of any action (including, without limitation, action that may involve or relate to a merger or potential merger or to a change or potential change in control of the bank) upon employees, depositors, suppliers, and customers of the corporation or its subsidiaries, communities in which the main banking premises, branches, offices, or other establishments of the bank or its subsidiaries are located, and all pertinent factors.
        (b) In discharging the duties of their respective
    
positions, the board of directors, committees of the board, and individual directors shall be entitled to rely on advice, information, opinions, reports or statements, including financial statements and financial data, prepared or presented by: (i) one or more officers or employees of the bank whom the director believes to be reliable and competent in the matter presented; (ii) one or more counsels, accountants, or other consultants as to matters that the director believes to be within that person's professional or expert competence; or (iii) a committee of the board upon which the director does not serve, as to matters within that committee's designated authority; provided that the director's reliance under this paragraph (b) is placed in good faith, after reasonable inquiry if the need for such inquiry is apparent under the circumstances and without knowledge that would cause such reliance to be unreasonable.

    (1) No director shall be removed at a meeting of shareholders unless the notice of the meeting shall state that a purpose of the meeting is to vote upon the removal of one or more directors named in the notice. Only the named director or directors may be removed at that meeting.
    (2) In the case of a bank having cumulative voting, if less than the entire board is to be removed, no director may be removed if the votes cast against his or her removal would be sufficient to elect him or her if then cumulatively voted at an election of the entire board of directors.
    (3) If a director is elected by a class or series of shares, he or she may be removed only by the shareholders of that class or series.
    (4) In the case of a State bank whose board is classified as provided in paragraph (3) of Section 16 of this Act, the charter or the by-laws may provide that directors may be removed only for cause.

        (8) increase, decrease, or change its capital stock
    
or preferred stock, whether issued or unissued, for the purpose of eliminating fractional shares or avoiding the issuance of fractional shares, provided that in no case shall the capital be diminished to the prejudice of its creditors; or

The Commissioner shall revoke such approval in the event such amendment or amendments are not effected within one year from the date of the issuance of the Commissioner's certificate and written approval except for transactions permitted under subsection (5) of Section 14 of this Act.
        (6) No amendment or amendments shall affect suits in
    
which the bank is a party, nor affect causes of action, nor affect rights of persons in any particular, nor shall actions brought against such bank by its former name be abated by a change of name.
        (7) A proposal to amend the charter to eliminate
    
cumulative voting rights under all or specified circumstances, or to eliminate voting rights entirely, as to any class or classes or series or stock of a bank, pursuant to paragraph (3) of Section 15 and paragraph (7) of subsection (a) of this Section 17, shall be adopted only upon such proposal receiving the approval of the holders of 70% of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote at the meeting where the proposal is presented for approval, unless holders of preferred stock are entitled to vote as a class in respect thereof, in which event the proposed amendment shall be adopted upon receiving the approval of the holders of 70% of the outstanding shares of each class of shares entitled to vote as a class in respect thereof and of the total outstanding shares entitled to vote at the meeting where the proposal is presented for approval. The proposal to amend the charter pursuant to this paragraph (7) may be voted upon at the annual meeting or a special meeting.
        (8) Written or printed notice of a stockholders'
    
meeting to vote on a proposal to increase, decrease or change the capital stock or preferred stock pursuant to paragraph (8) of subsection (a) of this Section 17 and to eliminate fractional shares or avoid the issuance of fractional shares shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting at least 30 days before the meeting and in the manner provided in this Act for the giving of notice of meetings of stockholders, and shall include all of the following information:
            (A) A statement of the purpose of the proposed
        
reverse stock split.
            (B) A statement of the amount of consideration
        
being offered for the bank's stock.
            (C) A statement that the bank considers the
        
transaction fair to the stockholders, and a statement of the material facts upon which this belief is based.
            (D) A statement that the bank has secured an
        
opinion from a third party with respect to the fairness, from a financial point of view, of the consideration to be paid, the identity and qualifications of the third party, how the third party was selected, and any material relationship between the third party and the bank.
            (E) A summary of the opinion including the basis
        
for and the methods of arriving at the findings and any limitation imposed by the bank in arriving at fair value and a statement making the opinion available for reviewing or copying by any stockholder.
            (F) A statement that objecting stockholders will
        
be entitled to the fair value of those shares that are voted against the charter amendment, if a proper demand is made on the bank and the requirements are satisfied as specified in this Section.
If a stockholder shall file with the bank, prior to or at the meeting of stockholders at which the proposed charter amendment is submitted to a vote, a written objection to the proposed charter amendment and shall not vote in favor thereof, and if the stockholder, within 20 days after receiving written notice of the date the charter amendment was accomplished pursuant to paragraph (5) of subsection (a) of this Section 17, shall make written demand on the bank for payment of the fair value of the stockholder's shares as of the day prior to the date on which the vote was taken approving the charter amendment, the bank shall pay to the stockholder, upon surrender of the certificate or certificates representing the stock, the fair value thereof. The demand shall state the number of shares owned by the objecting stockholder. The bank shall provide written notice of the date on which the charter amendment was accomplished to all stockholders who have filed written objections in order that the objecting stockholders may know when they must file written demand if they choose to do so. Any stockholder failing to make demand within the 20-day period shall be conclusively presumed to have consented to the charter amendment and shall be bound by the terms thereof. If within 30 days after the date on which a charter amendment was accomplished the value of the shares is agreed upon between the objecting stockholders and the bank, payment therefor shall be made within 90 days after the date on which the charter amendment was accomplished, upon the surrender of the stockholder's certificate or certificates representing the shares. Upon payment of the agreed value the objecting stockholder shall cease to have any interest in the shares or in the bank. If within such period of 30 days the stockholder and the bank do not so agree, then the objecting stockholder may, within 60 days after the expiration of the 30-day period, file a complaint in the circuit court asking for a finding and determination of the fair value of the shares, and shall be entitled to judgment against the bank for the amount of the fair value as of the day prior to the date on which the vote was taken approving the charter amendment with interest thereon to the date of the judgment. The practice, procedure and judgment shall be governed by the Civil Practice Law. The judgment shall be payable only upon and simultaneously with the surrender to the bank of the certificate or certificates representing the shares. Upon payment of the judgment, the objecting stockholder shall cease to have any interest in the shares or the bank. The shares may be held and disposed of by the bank. Unless the objecting stockholder shall file such complaint within the time herein limited, the stockholder and all persons claiming under the stockholder shall be conclusively presumed to have approved and ratified the charter amendment, and shall be bound by the terms thereof. The right of an objecting stockholder to be paid the fair value of the stockholder's shares of stock as herein provided shall cease if and when the bank shall abandon the charter amendment.
    (c) The purchase and holding and later resale of treasury stock of a state bank pursuant to the provisions of subsection (6) of Section 14 may be accomplished without a change in its charter reflecting any decrease or increase in capital stock.
    (d) A State bank may amend its charter for the purpose of authorizing its board of directors to issue preferred stock; to increase, decrease, or change the par value of shares of its preferred stock, whether issued or unissued; or to increase, decrease, or change the preferences, qualifications, limitations, restrictions, or special or relative rights of its preferred stock, whether issued or unissued; provided that in no case shall the capital be diminished to the prejudice of the bank's creditors. An amendment to the bank's charter granting such authority shall establish ranges, limits, or restrictions that must be observed when the board exercises the discretion authorized by the amendment.
    Once such an amendment is adopted and approved as provided in this subsection, and without further action by the bank's stockholders, the board may exercise its delegated authority by adopting a resolution specifying the actions that it is taking with respect to the preferred stock. The board may fully exercise its delegated authority through one resolution or it may exercise its delegated authority through a series of resolutions, provided that the board's actions remain at all times within the ranges, limitations, and restrictions specified in the amendment to the bank's charter.
    A resolution adopted by the board under this authority shall be submitted to the Commissioner for approval. The Commissioner shall approve the resolution, or state any objections to the resolution, within 30 days after the receipt of the resolution adopted by the board. If no objections are specified by the Commissioner within that time frame, the resolution will be deemed to be approved by the Commissioner. Once approved, the resolution shall be incorporated as an addendum to the bank's charter and the board may proceed to effect the changes set forth in the resolution.

    (205 ILCS 5/18) (from Ch. 17, par. 325)
    Sec. 18. Change in control.
    (a) Before a change may occur in the ownership of outstanding stock of any State bank, whether by sale and purchase, gift, bequest or inheritance, or any other means, including the acquisition of stock of the State bank by any bank holding company, which will result in control or a change in the control of the bank or before a change in the control of a holding company having control of the outstanding stock of a State bank whether by sale and purchase, gift, bequest or inheritance, or any other means, including the acquisition of stock of such holding company by any other bank holding company, which will result in control or a change in control of the bank or holding company, or before a transfer of substantially all the assets or liabilities of the State bank, the Commissioner shall be of the opinion and find:
        (1) that the general character of proposed management
    
or of the person desiring to purchase substantially all the assets or to assume substantially all the liabilities of the State bank, after the change in control, is such as to assure reasonable promise of successful, safe and sound operation;
        (1.1) that depositors' interests will not be
    
jeopardized by the purchase or assumption and that adequate provision has been made for all liabilities as required for a voluntary liquidation under Section 68 of this Act;
        (2) that the future earnings prospects of the person
    
desiring to purchase substantially all assets or to assume substantially all the liabilities of the State bank, after the proposed change in control, are favorable;
        (3) that any prior involvement by the persons
    
proposing to obtain control, to purchase substantially all the assets, or to assume substantially all the liabilities of the State bank or by the proposed management personnel with any other financial institution, whether as stockholder, director, officer or customer, was conducted in a safe and sound manner; and
        (4) that if the acquisition is being made by a bank
    
holding company, the acquisition is authorized under the Illinois Bank Holding Company Act of 1957.
    (b) Persons desiring to purchase control of an existing state bank, to purchase substantially all the assets, or to assume substantially all the liabilities of the State bank shall, prior to that purchase, submit to the Commissioner:
        (1) a statement of financial worth;
        (2) satisfactory evidence that any prior involvement
    
by the persons and the proposed management personnel with any other financial institution, whether as stockholder, director, officer or customer, was conducted in a safe and sound manner; and
        (3) such other relevant information as the
    
Commissioner may request to substantiate the findings under subsection (a) of this Section.
    A person who has submitted information to the Commissioner pursuant to this subsection (b) is under a continuing obligation until the Commissioner takes action on the application to immediately supplement that information if there are any material changes in the information previously furnished or if there are any material changes in any circumstances that may affect the Commissioner's opinion and findings. In addition, a person submitting information under this subsection shall notify the Commissioner of the date when the change in control is finally effected.
    The Commissioner may impose such terms and conditions on the approval of the change in control application as he deems necessary or appropriate.
    If an applicant, whose application for a change in control has been approved pursuant to subsection (a) of this Section, fails to effect the change in control within 180 days after the date of the Commissioner's approval, the Commissioner shall revoke that approval unless a request has been submitted, in writing, to the Commissioner for an extension and the request has been approved.
    (b-1) Any person who obtains ownership of stock of an existing State bank or stock of a holding company that controls the State bank by gift, bequest, or inheritance such that ownership of the stock would constitute control of the State bank or holding company may obtain title and ownership of the stock, but may not exercise management or control of the business and affairs of the bank or vote his or her shares so as to exercise management or control unless and until the Commissioner approves an application for the change of control as provided in subsection (b) of this Section.
    (c) Whenever a state bank makes a loan or loans, secured, or to be secured, by 25% or more of the outstanding stock of a state bank, the president or other chief executive officer of the lending bank shall promptly report such fact to the Commissioner upon obtaining knowledge of such loan or loans, except that no report need be made in those cases where the borrower has been the owner of record of the stock for a period of one year or more, or the stock is that of a newly organized bank prior to its opening.
    (d) The reports required by subsections (b) and (c) of this Section 18, other than those relating to a transfer of assets or assumption of liabilities, shall contain the following information to the extent that it is known by the person making the report: (1) the number of shares involved; (2) the names of the sellers (or transferors); (3) the names of the purchasers (or transferees); (4) the names of the beneficial owners if the shares are registered in another name: (5) the purchase price, if applicable; (6) the total number of shares owned by the sellers (or transferors), the purchasers (or transferees) and the beneficial owners both immediately before and after the transaction; and, (7) in the case of a loan, the name of the borrower, the amount of the loan, the name of the bank issuing the stock securing the loan and the number of shares securing the loan. In addition to the foregoing, such reports shall contain such other information which is requested by the Commissioner to inform the Commissioner of the effect of the transaction upon control of the bank whose stock is involved.
    (d-1) The reports required by subsection (b) of this Section 18 that relate to purchase of assets and assumption of liabilities shall contain the following information to the extent that it is known by the person making the report: (1) the value, amount, and description of the assets transferred; (2) the amount, type, and to whom each type of liabilities are owed; (3) the names of the purchasers (or transferees); (4) the names of the beneficial owners if the shares of a purchaser or transferee are registered in another name; (5) the purchase price, if applicable; and, (6) in the case of a loan obtained to effect a purchase, the name of the borrower, the amount and terms of the loan, and the description of the assets securing the loan. In addition to the foregoing, these reports shall contain any other information that is requested by the Commissioner to inform the Commissioner of the effect of the transaction upon the bank from which assets are purchased or liabilities are transferred.
    (e) Whenever such a change as described in subsection (a) of this Section 18 occurs, each state bank shall report promptly to the Commissioner any changes or replacement of its chief executive officer or of any director occurring in the next 12 month period, including in its report a statement of the past and current business and professional affiliations of the new chief executive officer or directors.
    (f) (Blank).
    (g) (1) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this
    
subsection (g), the Commissioners shall not approve an application for a change in control if upon consummation of the change in control the persons applying for the change in control, including any affiliates of the persons applying, would control 30% or more of the total amount of deposits which are located in this State at insured depository institutions. For purposes of this subsection (g), the words "insured depository institution" shall mean State banks, national banks, and insured savings associations. For purposes of this subsection (g), the word "deposits" shall have the meaning ascribed to that word in Section 3(1) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. For purposes of this subsection (g), the total amount of deposits which are considered to be located in this State at insured depository institutions shall equal the sum of all deposits held at the main banking premises and branches in the State of Illinois of State banks, national banks, or insured savings associations. For purposes of this subsection (g), the word "affiliates" shall have the meaning ascribed to that word in Section 35.2 of this Act.
        (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection
    
(g)(1) of this Section, the Commissioner may approve an application for a change in control for a bank that is in default or in danger of default. Except in those instances in which an application for a change in control is for a bank that is in default or in danger of default, the Commissioner may not approve a change in control which does not meet the requirements of subsection (g)(1) of this Section. The Commissioner may not waive the provisions of subsection (g)(1) of this Section, whether pursuant to Section 3(d) of the federal Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 or Section 44(d) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, except as expressly provided in this subsection (g)(2).
    (h) As used in this Section, the term "control" means the power, directly or indirectly, to direct the management or policies of the bank or to vote 25% or more of the outstanding stock of the bank. If there is any question as to whether a change in control application should be filed, the question shall be resolved in favor of filing the application with the Commissioner.
    As used in this Section, "substantially all" the assets or liabilities of a State bank means that portion of the assets or liabilities of a State bank such that their purchase or transfer will materially impair the ability of the State bank to continue successful, safe, and sound operations or to continue as a going concern or would cause the bank to lose its federal deposit insurance.
    As used in this Section, "purchase" includes a transfer by gift, bequest, inheritance, or any other means.

The action to be taken by such merging or converting State bank and its rights and liabilities and those of its stockholders and of its dissenting stockholders shall be the same as those prescribed for a State bank merging with, or converting into, a national bank or insured savings association that has received its charter from an agency of the United States Government at the time of the action by the law of the United States and not by the law of this State unless the State bank merges with or converts to a savings and loan association or savings bank chartered under the laws of this State, except that an affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of stock of a State bank entitled to vote at a meeting called in conformity with Section 23 shall be required for the merger or conversion. Upon the completion of a merger or conversion, resulting in a national bank or insured savings association, the charter of any merging or converting State bank shall automatically terminate. Approval by the Commissioner to convert a State bank to a national bank or insured savings association or to merge a State bank into a national bank or insured savings association shall not be required under this Act.

    Sec. 21. Resulting State bank.
    (a) Upon approval by the Commissioner, banks may be merged to result in a State bank, and a national bank or insured savings association may convert into a State bank as prescribed by this Act, except that the action by a national bank or an insured savings association shall be taken in the manner prescribed by and shall be subject to limitations and requirements imposed by the law of the United States or the laws of the State of Illinois, which shall also govern the rights of its dissenting stockholders.
    (b) Upon approval by the Commissioner, a State bank may be merged with an insured savings association resulting in a State bank except that the merger of an insured savings association shall be in the manner prescribed by and shall be subject to limitations and requirements imposed by the laws of the State of Illinois, including this Act, and the laws of the United States.
    (c) On or after June 1, 1997, a State bank, the deposits of which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, may merge with an out-of-state bank. When the resulting bank will be a State bank, the merger shall be subject to the provisions and requirements of this Act. When the resulting bank will be an out-of-state bank, the merger shall be in the manner prescribed by and shall be subject to the limitations and requirements imposed by the laws of the other State, except that if the laws of the other state do not provide rights for dissenting shareholders that are comparable to those provided by Section 29 of this Act, then the rights of the dissenting stockholders of the State bank shall be governed by Section 29 of this Act.

The Commissioner shall specify the form of the application which shall set forth, to the extent applicable, the same information required in an application by a foreign corporation pursuant to Section 13.15 of the Business Corporation Act of 1983. Subject to Sections 21.2 and 21.3 of this Act, receipt by the Commissioner of a copy of an application filed with and approved by the out-of-state bank's chartering authority authorizing the out-of-state bank to merge with a State bank shall satisfy the filing requirements of this subsection (a).
    When the provisions of this Section have been complied with, the Commissioner shall issue a certificate of authority to merge. If the merger is not consummated within one year, the Commissioner may cancel the certificate of authority.

    (205 ILCS 5/21.4)
    Sec. 21.4. Out-of-state banks establishing branches.
    (a) No out-of-state bank and no national bank whose main banking premises is located in a state other than Illinois shall establish a branch in this State, other than a branch authorized pursuant to Section 21.1 of this Act, unless:
        (1) the laws of the state in which such out-of-state
    
bank or national bank has its main banking premises permit such out-of-state bank or national bank to establish a branch in this State;
        (2) such out-of-state bank or national bank has its
    
main banking premises in a state that permits a State bank to establish a branch in that state pursuant to terms and conditions that are deemed to be reciprocal with the provisions of this Act; and
        (3) such out-of-state bank obtains a certificate of
    
authority from, or provides notice to, the Commissioner as provided in subsection (b) of this Section.
    (b) Before such out-of-state bank may establish a branch in this State, the out-of-state bank must obtain a certificate of authority from the Commissioner. The out-of-state bank must file an application for a certificate of authority on a form prescribed by the Commissioner.
    The application for a certificate of authority shall not be required if the state in which the out-of-state bank is chartered permits a state bank to establish a branch in that state without filing an application. An out-of-state bank chartered in such a state may establish a branch in this State pursuant to this Section after providing the Commissioner with written notice. The Commissioner may prescribe the form of such notice and may accept a copy of a notice or application provided by the out-of-state bank to its chartering authority or to its appropriate federal banking agency.
    (c) The determination of whether the laws of the state in which such out-of-state bank or national bank has its main banking premises are reciprocal with the provisions of this Act shall be made in writing by the Commissioner. The Commissioner shall not make a finding of reciprocity unless the Commissioner determines that the laws of the other state permit a State bank to establish a branch in such other state under terms and conditions that are substantially similar to the provisions of this Section. The Commissioner shall consider, at a minimum, whether the laws of such other state discriminate in any way against a State bank and whether the laws of such other state impose administrative or regulatory burdens that are substantially more restrictive than those imposed by this Act on an out-of-state bank or national bank seeking to establish a branch in this State.
    (d) After such out-of-state bank or national bank lawfully establishes a branch in this State pursuant to the provisions of this Section, such out-of-state bank or national bank may establish and maintain additional branches in this State to the same extent as a State bank. An out-of-state bank shall provide written notice to the Commissioner of its intent to establish an additional branch or branches in this State within 30 days after receiving approval from the appropriate federal banking agency to establish the branch or branches. The form of the notice shall be specified by the Commissioner.
    (e) A branch of an out-of-state bank may not conduct any activity that is not authorized for a State bank.

    (c) This Section shall not apply to an affiliate that operates solely for the purpose of owning or leasing the real estate on which the branch that accepts deposits is located.
    (d) This Section shall not be construed to prohibit the maintenance of a branch that was established prior to May 10, 2007, or the conduct of any transactions that were lawfully being conducted at the branch prior to May 10, 2007.
    (e) The Commissioner may make and enforce reasonable rules, regulations, directions, orders, decisions, and findings as the execution and enforcement of the provisions of this Section require.

Such demand shall state the number of the shares owned by such dissenting stockholder. The continuing bank shall provide written notice of the effective date of the merger to all shareholders who have filed written objections in order that such dissenting shareholders may know when they must file written demand if they choose to do so. Any stockholder failing to make demand within the 20-day period shall be conclusively presumed to have consented to the merger and shall be bound by the terms thereof. If within 30 days after the date on which such merger was effected the value of such shares is agreed upon between the dissenting stockholders and the continuing bank, payment therefor shall be made within 90 days after the date on which such merger was effected, upon the surrender of his certificate or certificates representing said shares. Upon payment of the agreed value the dissenting stockholder shall cease to have any interest in such shares or in the continuing bank.

The practice, procedure and judgment shall be governed by the Civil Practice Law of this State. The judgment shall be payable only upon and simultaneously with the surrender to the continuing bank of the certificate or certificates representing said shares. Upon the payment of the judgment, the dissenting stockholder shall cease to have any interest in such shares or in the continuing bank. Such shares of stock may be held and disposed of by the continuing bank. Unless the dissenting stockholder shall file such complaint within the time herein limited, such stockholder and all persons claiming under him shall be conclusively presumed to have approved and ratified the merger, and shall be bound by the terms thereof. The right of a dissenting stockholder to be paid the fair value of his shares of stock as herein provided shall cease if and when the continuing bank shall abandon the merger.

    Sec. 32. Basic loaning limits. The liabilities outstanding at one time to a state bank of a person for money borrowed, including the liabilities of a partnership or joint venture in the liabilities of the several members thereof, shall not exceed 25% of the amount of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank.
    The liabilities to any state bank of a person may exceed 25% of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank, provided that (i) the excess amount from time to time outstanding is fully secured by readily marketable collateral having a market value, as determined by reliable and continuously available quotations, at least equal to the excess amount outstanding; and (ii) the total liabilities shall not exceed 30% of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank.
    The following shall not be considered as money borrowed within the meaning of this Section:
        (1) The purchase or discount of bills of exchange
    
drawn in good faith against actually existing values.
        (2) The purchase or discount of commercial or
    
business paper actually owned by the person negotiating the same.
        (3) The purchase of or loaning money in exchange for
    
evidences of indebtedness which shall be secured by mortgage or trust deed upon productive real estate the value of which, as ascertained by the oath of 2 qualified appraisers, neither of whom shall be an officer, director, or employee of the bank or of any subsidiary or affiliate of the bank, is double the amount of the principal debt secured at the time of the original purchase of evidence of indebtedness or loan of money and which is still double the amount of the principal debt secured at the time of any renewal of the indebtedness or loan, and which mortgage or trust deed is shown, either by a guaranty policy of a title guaranty company approved by the Commissioner or by a registrar's certificate of title in any county having adopted the provisions of the Registered Titles (Torrens) Act, or by the opinion of an attorney-at-law, to be a first lien upon the real estate therein described, and real estate shall not be deemed to be encumbered within the meaning of this subsection (3) by reason of the existence of instruments reserving rights-of-way, sewer rights and rights in wells, building restrictions or other restrictive covenants, nor by reason of the fact it is subject to lease under which rents or profits are reserved by the owners.
        (4) The purchase of marketable investment securities.
        (5) The liability to a state bank of a person who is
    
an accommodation party to, or guarantor of payment for, any evidence of indebtedness of another person who obtains a loan from or discounts paper with or sells paper to the state bank; but the total liability to a state bank of a person as an accommodation party or guarantor of payment in respect of such evidences of indebtedness shall not exceed 25% of the amount of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank; provided however that the liability of an accommodation party to paper excepted under subsection 2 of this Section shall not be included in the computation of this limitation.
        (6) The liability to a state bank of a person, who as
    
a guarantor, guarantees collection of the obligation or indebtedness of another person.
    The total liabilities of any one person, for money borrowed, or otherwise, shall not exceed 25% of the deposits of the bank, and those total liabilities shall at no time exceed 50% of the amount of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank. Absent an actual unremedied breach, the obligation or responsibility for breach of warranties or representations, express or implied, of a person transferring negotiable or non-negotiable paper to a bank without recourse and without guaranty of payment, shall not be included in determining the amount of liabilities of the person to the bank for borrowed money or otherwise; and in the event of and to the extent of an unremedied breach, the amount remaining unpaid for principal and interest on the paper in respect of which the unremedied breach exists shall thereafter for the purpose of determining whether subsequent transactions giving rise to additional liability of the person to the state bank for borrowed money or otherwise are within the limitations of Sections 32 through 34 of this Act, be included in computing the amount of liabilities of the person for borrowed money or otherwise.
    The liability of a person to a state bank on account of acceptances made or issued by the state bank on behalf of the person shall be included in the computation of the total liabilities of the person for money borrowed except to the extent the acceptances grow out of transactions of the character described in subsection (6) of Section 34 of this Act and are otherwise within the limitations of that subsection; provided nevertheless that any such excepted acceptances acquired by the state bank which accepted the same shall be included in the computation of the liabilities of the person to the state bank for money borrowed.
    The Secretary may adopt rules to address the funding by banks of any loan commitment, when such funding would involve additional extensions of credit to be made after the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank have decreased and the Secretary determines that such decrease in unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus would cause the additional extensions of credit to result in an unsafe and unsound condition.

As used in this Section the term "marketable investment securities" means marketable obligations evidencing indebtedness of any person in the form of bonds, notes, or debentures commonly known as investment securities; obligations identified by certificates of participation in investments the bank could have invested in directly; and includes certificates of participation in open end investment companies registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940 and Securities Act of 1933 commonly referred to as mutual or money market funds, provided the portfolios of those investment companies consist of investments that a bank could invest in directly. Marketable investment securities shall be rated in the top 4 rating categories by national rating services and designated as "investment grade" or "bank quality investments" securities. The rating restriction on marketable investment securities does not apply to securities that are issued by a public agency as defined in Section 1 of the Public Funds Investment Act.

and unimpaired surplus of any bank, to loans to or obligations of any person to the extent that the loan shall be secured by a like amount of obligations of or guaranteed by the United States or by the State of Illinois, or by a like amount of obligations of any corporation wholly owned directly or indirectly by the United States or of any agency or instrumentality of the United States or of the State of Illinois, including any unit of local government or school district, provided that the total liabilities to any bank of any one person shall not exceed 50% of such unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus.

and unimpaired surplus of any bank, to loans to or obligations of any person to the extent that the same shall be secured by shipping documents or instruments transferring or securing title covering livestock or giving a lien on livestock when the market value of the livestock securing the obligation is not at the time of the making of the loan less than 115% of the principal amount of the obligation, provided that the total liabilities to any bank of any one person shall not exceed 50% of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus.

without recourse, or as guarantor, whether conditional or unconditional, of negotiable or nonnegotiable installment consumer paper of the person transferring the same if the bank's files or the knowledge of its officers of the financial condition of each maker of those obligations is reasonably adequate and if an officer of the bank, designated for that purpose by the board of directors of the bank, certifies that the responsibility of each maker of the obligations has been evaluated and that the bank is relying primarily upon each maker for the payment of the obligations; certification shall be in writing and shall be retained as part of the records of the bank.

letters of credit; however, if the letter of credit is a standby letter of credit, it shall be included within the limit under Section 32 for the person who has procured the issuance of the standby letter of credit unless the issuing bank has, at the time of issuance, an irrevocable commitment by another bank to purchase or participate out any amounts that may later be drawn under the letter of credit that would create a loan in excess of the limits under Section 32 for the person or the amounts are secured by pledge of United States government securities, a segregated deposit account, or other security that would exempt a loan so secured by application of Section 34 or 35 of this Act; if, however, a commitment to purchase or participate is in place, the amounts are not included in the limits under Section 32 for the person until drafts are presented upon the letter.
        (6) To the acceptance of drafts or bills of exchange
    
that grow out of transactions involving the importation or exportation of goods; or that grow out of transactions involving the domestic shipment of goods, provided documents of title covering the goods secure the acceptances at the time of acceptance; or that are secured at the time of acceptances by documents of title covering readily marketable staples; but the aggregate amount of these acceptances by any State bank on behalf of any one person at any one time outstanding shall not exceed 20% of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank unless the part thereof in excess of that percentum of unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus is and will remain secured by accompanying documents of title or proceeds thereof growing out of the same transaction or by substituted security of similar character; provided further, however, that the aggregate amount of the acceptances on behalf of any one person outstanding at any one time shall not exceed 50% of the amount of unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank.

personal property subject to any lease or series of leases which is or are the responsibility of a person shall not, when added to any liability of such person for money borrowed, exceed 25% of the unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank.

        (c) No such lease or related agreement shall obligate
    
the bank to maintain, repair or service the personal property, or unconditionally obligate the bank to restore or replace the same, or in effect unconditionally place on the bank the risk of such restoration or replacement, in the event of loss, theft or destruction of or damage to such property from any cause other than a wilful act of the bank.
    The limitations and restrictions set forth in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) above shall apply and be complied with even though such owning and leasing is carried on by the bank, in whole or in part, through the medium of a subsidiary as permitted by paragraph (12) of Section 5 of this Act.
    In the event a state bank acquires by purchase or discount a lease, or the sums due and to become due thereunder, of personal property made by a lessor other than the bank or such a subsidiary, paragraph (b) of this Section 35.1 shall also apply to the obligation of the lessee under such lease.

        (5) The collateral requirements of this paragraph do
    
not apply to an acceptance that is already fully secured either by attached documents or by other property having an ascertainable market value that is involved in the transaction.

    (3)(a) For purposes of this Section, "control" means (i) ownership, control, or power to vote 25% or more of the outstanding shares of any class of voting security of the corporation or firm, directly or indirectly, or acting through or in concert with one or more other persons; (ii) control in any manner over the election of a majority of the directors of the corporation or firm; or (iii) the power to exercise a controlling influence over the management or policies of the corporation or firm, directly or indirectly, or acting through or in concert with one or more persons.

    (3)(c) A person is presumed to have control, including the power to exercise a controlling influence over the management or policies, of a corporation or firm if:
        (i) the person:

individual exercising similar functions of the corporation or firm; and
            (B) directly or indirectly owns, controls, or has
        
the power to vote more than 10% of any class of voting securities of the corporation or firm; or

        (1) An act or omission that is grossly negligent.
        (2) A breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the
    
bank or its shareholders.
        (3) Acts or omissions not in good faith or that
    
involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law.

Whenever the vote of the stockholders or the directors, as the case may be, at a meeting thereof is required or permitted to be taken in connection with any corporate action, by any section of this Act, the meeting and vote of stockholders or directors may be dispensed with, if all of the stockholders or all of the directors who would have been entitled to vote upon the action if such meeting were held, shall consent in writing to such corporate action being taken. In the event that the action which is consented to is such as would have required the filing of a certificate under any of the other sections of this Act, if such action had been voted upon by the stockholders or directors at a meeting thereof, the certificate filed under such other section shall state that written consent has been given hereunder, in lieu of stating that the stockholders or directors have voted upon the corporate action in question, if such last mentioned statement is required thereby.

    Sec. 46. Misleading practices and names prohibited; penalty.
    (a) No person, firm, partnership, or corporation that is not a bank shall transact business in this State in a manner which has a substantial likelihood of misleading the public by implying that the business is a bank, or shall use the word "bank", "banker", or "banking" in connection with the business. Any person, firm, partnership or corporation violating this Section shall be deemed guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, and the Attorney General or State's Attorney of the county in which any such violation occurs may restrain such violation by a complaint for injunctive relief.
    (b) If the Commissioner is of the opinion and finds that a person, firm, partnership, or corporation that is not a bank has transacted or intends to transact business in this State in a manner which has a substantial likelihood of misleading the public by implying that the business is a bank, or has used or intends to use the word "bank", "banker", or "banking" in connection with the business, then the Commissioner may direct that person, firm, partnership, or corporation to cease and desist from transacting the business or using the word "bank", "banker", or "banking". If that person, firm, partnership, or corporation persists in transacting the business or using the word "bank", "banker", or "banking", then the Commissioner may impose a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for each violation. Each day that the person, firm, partnership, or corporation continues transacting the business or using the word "bank", "banker", or "banking" in connection with the business shall constitute a separate violation of these provisions.
    (c) A person, firm, partnership, or corporation that is not a bank, and is not transacting or intending to transact business in this State in a manner that has a substantial likelihood of misleading the public by implying that such business is a bank, may apply to the Commissioner for permission to use the word "bank", "banker", or "banking" in connection with the business. If the Commissioner determines that there is no substantial likelihood of misleading the public, and upon such conditions as the Commissioner may impose to prevent the person, firm, partnership, or corporation from holding itself out in a misleading manner, then such person, firm, partnership, or corporation may use the word "bank", "banker", or "banking".
        (d) (1) Unless otherwise expressly permitted by law,
    
no person, firm, partnership, or corporation may use the name of an existing bank when marketing to or soliciting business from customers or prospective customers if the reference to the existing bank is made without the consent of the existing bank.
        (1.5) Unless otherwise expressly permitted by law, no
    
person, firm, partnership, or corporation may use a name similar to that of an existing bank when marketing to or soliciting business from customers or prospective customers if the similar name is used in a manner that could cause a reasonable person to believe that the marketing material or solicitation originated from or is endorsed by the existing bank or that the existing bank is in any other way responsible for the marketing material or solicitation.
        (2) An existing bank may, in addition to any other
    
remedies available under the law, report an alleged violation of this subsection (d) to the Commissioner. If the Commissioner finds the marketing material or solicitation in question to be in violation of this subsection, the Commissioner may direct the person, firm, partnership, or corporation to cease and desist from using that marketing material or solicitation in Illinois. If that person, firm, partnership, or corporation persists in the use of the marketing material or solicitation, then the Commissioner may impose a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for each violation. Each instance in which the marketing material or solicitation is sent to a customer or prospective customer shall constitute a separate violation of these provisions. The Commissioner is authorized to promulgate rules to administer these provisions.

    (a) All State banks shall make a full and accurate statement of their affairs at least 1 time during each calendar quarter which shall be certified to, under oath by the president, a vice-president or the cashier of such bank. If the statement is submitted in electronic form, the Commissioner may, in the call for the report, specify the manner in which the appropriate officer of the bank shall certify the statement of affairs. The statement shall be according to the form which may be prescribed by the Commissioner and shall exhibit in detail information concerning such bank at the close of business of any day the Commissioner may choose and designate in a call for such report. Each bank shall deliver its quarterly statement to the location specified by the Commissioner within 30 calendar days of the date of the call for such reports. If the quarterly statement is mailed, it must be postmarked within the period prescribed for delivery, and if the quarterly statement is delivered in electronic form, the bank shall generate and retain satisfactory proof that it has caused the report to be delivered within the period prescribed for delivery.
    (b) In addition to the foregoing reports, any bank which is the victim of a shortage of funds in excess of $10,000, an apparent misapplication of the bank's funds by an officer, employee or director, or any adverse legal action in an amount in excess of 10% of total unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus of the bank, including but not limited to, the entry of an adverse money judgment against the bank or a write-off of assets of the bank, shall report that information in writing to the Commissioner within 7 days of the occurrence. Compliance with the time frames prescribed by the United States Department of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network shall be deemed compliance with this Section. Neither the bank, its directors, officers, employees or its agents, in the preparation or filing of the reports required by subsection (b) of this Section, shall be subject to any liability for libel, slander, or other charges resulting from information supplied in such reports, except when the supplying of such information is done in a corrupt or malicious manner or otherwise not in good faith.

    (205 ILCS 5/48)
    Sec. 48. Secretary's powers; duties. The Secretary shall have the powers and authority, and is charged with the duties and responsibilities designated in this Act, and a State bank shall not be subject to any other visitorial power other than as authorized by this Act, except those vested in the courts, or upon prior consultation with the Secretary, a foreign bank regulator with an appropriate supervisory interest in the parent or affiliate of a state bank. In the performance of the Secretary's duties:
    (1) The Commissioner shall call for statements from all State banks as provided in Section 47 at least one time during each calendar quarter.
    (2) (a) The Commissioner, as often as the Commissioner shall deem necessary or proper, and no less frequently than 18 months following the preceding examination, shall appoint a suitable person or persons to make an examination of the affairs of every State bank, except that for every eligible State bank, as defined by regulation, the Commissioner in lieu of the examination may accept on an alternating basis the examination made by the eligible State bank's appropriate federal banking agency pursuant to Section 111 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991, provided the appropriate federal banking agency has made such an examination. A person so appointed shall not be a stockholder or officer or employee of any bank which that person may be directed to examine, and shall have powers to make a thorough examination into all the affairs of the bank and in so doing to examine any of the officers or agents or employees thereof on oath and shall make a full and detailed report of the condition of the bank to the Commissioner. In making the examination the examiners shall include an examination of the affairs of all the affiliates of the bank, as defined in subsection (b) of Section 35.2 of this Act, or subsidiaries of the bank as shall be necessary to disclose fully the conditions of the subsidiaries or affiliates, the relations between the bank and the subsidiaries or affiliates and the effect of those relations upon the affairs of the bank, and in connection therewith shall have power to examine any of the officers, directors, agents, or employees of the subsidiaries or affiliates on oath. After May 31, 1997, the Commissioner may enter into cooperative agreements with state regulatory authorities of other states to provide for examination of State bank branches in those states, and the Commissioner may accept reports of examinations of State bank branches from those state regulatory authorities. These cooperative agreements may set forth the manner in which the other state regulatory authorities may be compensated for examinations prepared for and submitted to the Commissioner.
    (b) After May 31, 1997, the Commissioner is authorized to examine, as often as the Commissioner shall deem necessary or proper, branches of out-of-state banks. The Commissioner may establish and may assess fees to be paid to the Commissioner for examinations under this subsection (b). The fees shall be borne by the out-of-state bank, unless the fees are borne by the state regulatory authority that chartered the out-of-state bank, as determined by a cooperative agreement between the Commissioner and the state regulatory authority that chartered the out-of-state bank.
    (2.5) Whenever any State bank, any subsidiary or affiliate of a State bank, or after May 31, 1997, any branch of an out-of-state bank causes to be performed, by contract or otherwise, any bank services for itself, whether on or off its premises:
        (a) that performance shall be subject to examination
    
by the Commissioner to the same extent as if services were being performed by the bank or, after May 31, 1997, branch of the out-of-state bank itself on its own premises; and
        (b) the bank or, after May 31, 1997, branch of the
    
out-of-state bank shall notify the Commissioner of the existence of a service relationship. The notification shall be submitted with the first statement of condition (as required by Section 47 of this Act) due after the making of the service contract or the performance of the service, whichever occurs first. The Commissioner shall be notified of each subsequent contract in the same manner.
    For purposes of this subsection (2.5), the term "bank services" means services such as sorting and posting of checks and deposits, computation and posting of interest and other credits and charges, preparation and mailing of checks, statements, notices, and similar items, or any other clerical, bookkeeping, accounting, statistical, or similar functions performed for a State bank, including but not limited to electronic data processing related to those bank services.
    (3) The expense of administering this Act, including the expense of the examinations of State banks as provided in this Act, shall to the extent of the amounts resulting from the fees provided for in paragraphs (a), (a-2), and (b) of this subsection (3) be assessed against and borne by the State banks:
        (a) Each bank shall pay to the Secretary a Call
    
Report Fee which shall be paid in quarterly installments equal to one-fourth of the sum of the annual fixed fee of $800, plus a variable fee based on the assets shown on the quarterly statement of condition delivered to the Secretary in accordance with Section 47 for the preceding quarter according to the following schedule: 16 per $1,000 of the first $5,000,000 of total assets, 15 per $1,000 of the next $20,000,000 of total assets, 13 per $1,000 of the next $75,000,000 of total assets, 9 per $1,000 of the next $400,000,000 of total assets, 7 per $1,000 of the next $500,000,000 of total assets, and 5 per $1,000 of all assets in excess of $1,000,000,000, of the State bank. The Call Report Fee shall be calculated by the Secretary and billed to the banks for remittance at the time of the quarterly statements of condition provided for in Section 47. The Secretary may require payment of the fees provided in this Section by an electronic transfer of funds or an automatic debit of an account of each of the State banks. In case more than one examination of any bank is deemed by the Secretary to be necessary in any examination frequency cycle specified in subsection 2(a) of this Section, and is performed at his direction, the Secretary may assess a reasonable additional fee to recover the cost of the additional examination; provided, however, that an examination conducted at the request of the State Treasurer pursuant to the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act shall not be deemed to be an additional examination under this Section. In lieu of the method and amounts set forth in this paragraph (a) for the calculation of the Call Report Fee, the Secretary may specify by rule that the Call Report Fees provided by this Section may be assessed semiannually or some other period and may provide in the rule the formula to be used for calculating and assessing the periodic Call Report Fees to be paid by State banks.
        (a-1) If in the opinion of the Commissioner an
    
emergency exists or appears likely, the Commissioner may assign an examiner or examiners to monitor the affairs of a State bank with whatever frequency he deems appropriate, including but not limited to a daily basis. The reasonable and necessary expenses of the Commissioner during the period of the monitoring shall be borne by the subject bank. The Commissioner shall furnish the State bank a statement of time and expenses if requested to do so within 30 days of the conclusion of the monitoring period.
        (a-2) On and after January 1, 1990, the reasonable
    
and necessary expenses of the Commissioner during examination of the performance of electronic data processing services under subsection (2.5) shall be borne by the banks for which the services are provided. An amount, based upon a fee structure prescribed by the Commissioner, shall be paid by the banks or, after May 31, 1997, branches of out-of-state banks receiving the electronic data processing services along with the Call Report Fee assessed under paragraph (a) of this subsection (3).
        (a-3) After May 31, 1997, the reasonable and
    
necessary expenses of the Commissioner during examination of the performance of electronic data processing services under subsection (2.5) at or on behalf of branches of out-of-state banks shall be borne by the out-of-state banks, unless those expenses are borne by the state regulatory authorities that chartered the out-of-state banks, as determined by cooperative agreements between the Commissioner and the state regulatory authorities that chartered the out-of-state banks.
        (b) "Fiscal year" for purposes of this Section 48 is
    
defined as a period beginning July 1 of any year and ending June 30 of the next year. The Commissioner shall receive for each fiscal year, commencing with the fiscal year ending June 30, 1987, a contingent fee equal to the lesser of the aggregate of the fees paid by all State banks under paragraph (a) of subsection (3) for that year, or the amount, if any, whereby the aggregate of the administration expenses, as defined in paragraph (c), for that fiscal year exceeds the sum of the aggregate of the fees payable by all State banks for that year under paragraph (a) of subsection (3), plus any amounts transferred into the Bank and Trust Company Fund from the State Pensions Fund for that year, plus all other amounts collected by the Commissioner for that year under any other provision of this Act, plus the aggregate of all fees collected for that year by the Commissioner under the Corporate Fiduciary Act, excluding the receivership fees provided for in Section 5-10 of the Corporate Fiduciary Act, and the Foreign Banking Office Act. The aggregate amount of the contingent fee thus arrived at for any fiscal year shall be apportioned amongst, assessed upon, and paid by the State banks and foreign banking corporations, respectively, in the same proportion that the fee of each under paragraph (a) of subsection (3), respectively, for that year bears to the aggregate for that year of the fees collected under paragraph (a) of subsection (3). The aggregate amount of the contingent fee, and the portion thereof to be assessed upon each State bank and foreign banking corporation, respectively, shall be determined by the Commissioner and shall be paid by each, respectively, within 120 days of the close of the period for which the contingent fee is computed and is payable, and the Commissioner shall give 20 days advance notice of the amount of the contingent fee payable by the State bank and of the date fixed by the Commissioner for payment of the fee.
        (c) The "administration expenses" for any fiscal year
    
shall mean the ordinary and contingent expenses for that year incident to making the examinations provided for by, and for otherwise administering, this Act, the Corporate Fiduciary Act, excluding the expenses paid from the Corporate Fiduciary Receivership account in the Bank and Trust Company Fund, the Foreign Banking Office Act, the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, and the Illinois Bank Examiners' Education Foundation Act, including all salaries and other compensation paid for personal services rendered for the State by officers or employees of the State, including the Commissioner and the Deputy Commissioners, communication equipment and services, office furnishings, surety bond premiums, and travel expenses of those officers and employees, employees, expenditures or charges for the acquisition, enlargement or improvement of, or for the use of, any office space, building, or structure, or expenditures for the maintenance thereof or for furnishing heat, light, or power with respect thereto, all to the extent that those expenditures are directly incidental to such examinations or administration. The Commissioner shall not be required by paragraphs (c) or (d-1) of this subsection (3) to maintain in any fiscal year's budget appropriated reserves for accrued vacation and accrued sick leave that is required to be paid to employees of the Commissioner upon termination of their service with the Commissioner in an amount that is more than is reasonably anticipated to be necessary for any anticipated turnover in employees, whether due to normal attrition or due to layoffs, terminations, or resignations.
        (d) The aggregate of all fees collected by the
    
Secretary under this Act, the Corporate Fiduciary Act, or the Foreign Banking Office Act on and after July 1, 1979, shall be paid promptly after receipt of the same, accompanied by a detailed statement thereof, into the State treasury and shall be set apart in a special fund to be known as the "Bank and Trust Company Fund", except as provided in paragraph (c) of subsection (11) of this Section. All earnings received from investments of funds in the Bank and Trust Company Fund shall be deposited in the Bank and Trust Company Fund and may be used for the same purposes as fees deposited in that Fund. The amount from time to time deposited into the Bank and Trust Company Fund shall be used: (i) to offset the ordinary administrative expenses of the Secretary as defined in this Section or (ii) as a credit against fees under paragraph (d-1) of this subsection (3). Nothing in this amendatory Act of 1979 shall prevent continuing the practice of paying expenses involving salaries, retirement, social security, and State-paid insurance premiums of State officers by appropriations from the General Revenue Fund. However, the General Revenue Fund shall be reimbursed for those payments made on and after July 1, 1979, by an annual transfer of funds from the Bank and Trust Company Fund. Moneys in the Bank and Trust Company Fund may be transferred to the Professions Indirect Cost Fund, as authorized under Section 2105-300 of the Department of Professional Regulation Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois.
        Notwithstanding provisions in the State Finance Act,
    
as now or hereafter amended, or any other law to the contrary, the sum of $18,788,847 shall be transferred from the Bank and Trust Company Fund to the Financial Institutions Settlement of 2008 Fund on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly, or as soon thereafter as practical.
        Notwithstanding provisions in the State Finance Act,
    
as now or hereafter amended, or any other law to the contrary, the Governor may, during any fiscal year through January 10, 2011, from time to time direct the State Treasurer and Comptroller to transfer a specified sum not exceeding 10% of the revenues to be deposited into the Bank and Trust Company Fund during that fiscal year from that Fund to the General Revenue Fund in order to help defray the State's operating costs for the fiscal year. Notwithstanding provisions in the State Finance Act, as now or hereafter amended, or any other law to the contrary, the total sum transferred during any fiscal year through January 10, 2011, from the Bank and Trust Company Fund to the General Revenue Fund pursuant to this provision shall not exceed during any fiscal year 10% of the revenues to be deposited into the Bank and Trust Company Fund during that fiscal year. The State Treasurer and Comptroller shall transfer the amounts designated under this Section as soon as may be practicable after receiving the direction to transfer from the Governor.
        (d-1) Adequate funds shall be available in the Bank
    
and Trust Company Fund to permit the timely payment of administration expenses. In each fiscal year the total administration expenses shall be deducted from the total fees collected by the Commissioner and the remainder transferred into the Cash Flow Reserve Account, unless the balance of the Cash Flow Reserve Account prior to the transfer equals or exceeds one-fourth of the total initial appropriations from the Bank and Trust Company Fund for the subsequent year, in which case the remainder shall be credited to State banks and foreign banking corporations and applied against their fees for the subsequent year. The amount credited to each State bank and foreign banking corporation shall be in the same proportion as the Call Report Fees paid by each for the year bear to the total Call Report Fees collected for the year. If, after a transfer to the Cash Flow Reserve Account is made or if no remainder is available for transfer, the balance of the Cash Flow Reserve Account is less than one-fourth of the total initial appropriations for the subsequent year and the amount transferred is less than 5% of the total Call Report Fees for the year, additional amounts needed to make the transfer equal to 5% of the total Call Report Fees for the year shall be apportioned amongst, assessed upon, and paid by the State banks and foreign banking corporations in the same proportion that the Call Report Fees of each, respectively, for the year bear to the total Call Report Fees collected for the year. The additional amounts assessed shall be transferred into the Cash Flow Reserve Account.

The Commissioner may take possession and control of a state bank and its assets, by posting upon the premises a notice reciting that he is assuming possession pursuant to this Act, and the time when his possession shall be deemed to commence, which time shall not pre-date the posting of the notice. Promptly after taking possession and control of a bank, if the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is not appointed as receiver, the Commissioner shall file a copy of the notice posted upon the premises in the circuit court in the county in which the bank is located, and thereupon the clerk of such court shall note the filing thereof upon the records of the court, and shall enter such cause as a court action upon the dockets of such court under the name and style of "In the matter of the possession and control of the Commissioner of Banks and Real Estate of ...." (inserting the name of such bank), and thereupon the court wherein such cause is docketed shall be vested with jurisdiction to hear and determine all issues and matters pertaining to or connected with the Commissioner's possession and control of such bank as provided in this Act, and such further issues and matters pertaining to or connected with the Commissioner's possession and control as may be submitted to such court for its adjudication by the Commissioner. When the Commissioner has taken possession and control of a bank and its assets, he shall be vested with the full powers of management and control, including without limiting the generality thereof, the following:
        (1) the power to continue or to discontinue the
    
business;
        (2) the power to stop or to limit the payment of its
    
obligations, provided, however with respect to a qualified financial contract between any party and a bank or banking office, the branch or agency of which the Commissioner has taken possession and control, which party has a perfected security interest in collateral or other valid lien or security interest in collateral enforceable against third parties pursuant to a security arrangement related to that qualified financial contract, the party may retain all of the collateral and upon repudiation or termination of that qualified financial contract in accordance with its terms apply the collateral in satisfaction of any claims secured by the collateral; in no event shall the total amount so applied exceed the global net payment obligation, if any;
        (3) the power to collect and to use its assets and to
    
give valid receipts and acquittances therefor;
        (4) the power to employ and to pay any necessary
    
assistants;
        (5) the power to execute any instrument in the name
    
of the bank;
        (6) the power to commence, defend and conduct in its
    
name any action or proceeding in which it may be a party;
        (7) the power, upon the order of the court, to sell
    
and convey its assets in whole or in part, and to sell or compound bad or doubtful debts upon such terms and conditions as may be fixed in such order;
        (8) the power, upon the order of the court, to make
    
and to carry out agreements with other banks or with the United States or any agency thereof which shall have insured the bank's deposits, in whole or in part, for the payment or assumption of the bank's liabilities, in whole or in part, and to transfer assets and to make guaranties, in whole or in part, and to transfer assets and to make guaranties in connection therewith;
        (9) the power, upon the order of the court, to borrow
    
money in the name of the bank and to pledge its assets as security for the loan;
        (10) the power to terminate his possession and
    
control by restoring the bank to its board of directors;
        (11) the power to reorganize the bank as provided in
    
this Act;
        (12) the power to appoint a receiver and to order
    
liquidation of the bank as provided in this Act; and
        (13) the power, upon the order of the court and
    
without the appointment of a receiver, to determine that the bank has been closed for the purpose of liquidation without adequate provision being made for payment of its depositors, and thereupon the bank shall be deemed to have been closed on account of inability to meet the demands of its depositors.
    As soon as practical after taking possession, the Commissioner shall make his examination of the condition of the bank and an inventory of the assets. Unless the time shall be extended by order of the court and, unless the Commissioner shall have otherwise settled the affairs of a bank pursuant to the provisions of this Act, at the termination of thirty days from the time of taking possession and control of a bank for the purpose of examination, reorganization or liquidation through receivership, the Commissioner shall either terminate his possession and control by restoring the bank to its board of directors or appoint a receiver and order the liquidation of the bank as provided in this Act. All necessary and reasonable expenses of the Commissioner's possession and control and of its reorganization shall be borne by the bank and may be paid by the Commissioner from its assets. If the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is appointed by the Commissioner as receiver of a State bank, or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation takes possession of such State bank, the receivership proceedings and the powers and duties of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation shall be governed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations promulgated thereunder rather than the provisions of this Act.

Such reorganization plan shall become effective only (1) when the requirements of Section 56 shall have been satisfied, and (2) when, after reasonable notice of such reorganization, as the case may require (a) depositors and other creditors of such bank representing at least seventy-five per cent in amount of its total deposits and other liabilities as shown by the books of the bank, or (b) stockholders owning at least two-thirds of its outstanding capital stock as shown by the books of the bank, or (c) both depositors and other creditors representing at least seventy-five per cent in amount of the total deposits and other liabilities and stockholders owning at least two-thirds of its outstanding capital stock as shown by the books of the bank, shall have consented in writing to the plan of reorganization; provided, however, that claims of depositors or other creditors which will be satisfied in full on demand under the provisions of the plan of reorganization shall not be included among the total deposits and other liabilities of the bank in determining the seventy-five per cent thereof as above provided. When such reorganization becomes effective, all books, records, and assets of the bank shall be disposed of in accordance with the provisions of the plan and the affairs of the bank shall be conducted by its board of directors in the manner provided by the plan and under the conditions, restrictions, and limitations which may have been prescribed by the Commissioner. In any reorganization which shall have been approved and shall have become effective as provided herein, all depositors and other creditors and stockholders of such bank, whether or not they shall have consented to such plan of reorganization, shall be fully and in all respects subject to and bound by its provisions, and claims of all depositors and other creditors shall be treated as if they have consented to such plan of reorganization. A department, agency or political subdivision of this State holding a claim which will not be paid in full is authorized to participate in a plan of reorganization as any other creditor and shall be subject to and bound by its provisions as any other creditor.

    (a) If the Commissioner determines (which determination may be made at the time, or any time subsequent to his taking possession and control of a bank and its assets) that no practical possibility exists to reorganize the bank after reasonable efforts have been made and that it should be liquidated through receivership, he shall appoint a receiver and require of him such bond and security as the Commissioner deems proper, and the Commissioner, represented by the Attorney General, shall, if the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is not acting as receiver, file a complaint for the dissolution or winding up of the affairs of such bank in the circuit court of the county where such bank is located.
    (b) Unless the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is acting as receiver for the bank, the Commissioner, upon taking possession and control of a bank and its assets, may, and if he has not previously done so, shall, immediately upon filing a complaint for dissolution, make an examination of the affairs of the trust department of the bank or appoint a corporate fiduciary or other suitable person to make the examination as the Commissioner's agent. The examination shall be conducted in accordance with and pursuant to the authority granted under Section 5-2 of the Corporate Fiduciary Act, as now or hereafter amended, and the corporate fiduciary or other suitable person conducting the examination shall have and may exercise on behalf of the Commissioner all of the powers and authority granted to the Commissioner thereunder. The report of examination shall, to the extent reasonably possible, identify those governing instruments with specific instructions concerning the appointment of a successor fiduciary. A copy of the report shall be filed in any dissolution proceeding filed by the Commissioner. The reasonable fees and necessary expenses of the examining corporate fiduciary or other suitable person, as approved by the Commissioner or as recommended by the Commissioner and approved by the court if a dissolution proceeding has been filed, shall be borne by the subject state bank and shall have the same priority for payment as the reasonable and necessary expenses of the Commissioner in conducting an examination.
    As soon as reasonably can be done, the Commissioner, if he deems it advisable, shall seek the advice and instruction of the court concerning the removal of the corporate fiduciary as to all of its fiduciary accounts and the appointment of a successor fiduciary (which may be the examining corporate fiduciary) to take over and administer all of the fiduciary accounts being administered by the trust department of the state bank. The corporate fiduciary or other suitable person appointed to make the examination shall make a proper accounting, in the manner and scope as determined by the Commissioner to be practical and advisable under the circumstances, on behalf of the trust department of the state bank and no guardian ad litem need be appointed to review the accounting.
