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.

215 ILCS 5/500-140

    (215 ILCS 5/500-140)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 500-140. Injunctive relief. A person required to be licensed under this Article but failing to obtain a valid and current license under this Article constitutes a public nuisance. The Director may report the failure to obtain a license to the Attorney General, whose duty it is to apply forthwith by complaint on relation of the Director in the name of the people of the State of Illinois, for injunctive relief in the circuit court of the county where the failure to obtain a license occurred to enjoin that person from failing to obtain a license. Upon the filing of a verified petition in the court, the court, if satisfied by affidavit or otherwise that the person is required to have a license and does not have a valid and current license, may enter a temporary restraining order without notice or bond, enjoining the defendant from acting in any capacity that requires such license. A copy of the verified complaint shall be served upon the defendant, and the proceedings shall thereafter be conducted as in other civil cases. If it is established that the defendant has been, or is engaged in any unlawful practice, the court may enter an order or judgment perpetually enjoining the defendant from further engaging in such practice. In all proceedings brought under this Section, the court, in its discretion, may apportion the costs among the parties, including the cost of filing the complaint, service of process, witness fees and expenses, court reporter charges, and reasonable attorney fees. In case of the violation of any injunctive order entered under the provisions of this Section, the court may summarily try and punish the offender for contempt of court. The injunctive relief available under this Section is in addition to and not in lieu of all other penalties and remedies provided in this Code.

    (215 ILCS 5/507.2)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 507.2. Policyholder information and exclusive ownership of expirations.
    (a) As used in this Section, "expirations" means all information relative to an insurance policy including, but not limited to, the name and address of the insured, the location and description of the property insured, the value of the insurance policy, the inception date, the renewal date, and the expiration date of the insurance policy, the premiums, the limits and a description of the terms and coverage of the insurance policy, and any other personal and privileged information, as defined by Section 1003 of this Code, compiled by a registered firm or furnished by the insured to the insurer or any agent, contractor, or representative of the insurer.
    For purposes of this Section only, a registered firm also includes a sole proprietorship that transacts the business of insurance as an insurance agency.
    (b) All "expirations" as defined in subsection (a) of this Section shall be mutually and exclusively owned by the insured and the registered firm. The limitations on the use of expirations as provided in subsections (c) and (d) of this Section shall be for mutual benefit of the insured and the registered firm.
    (c) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, for purposes of soliciting, selling, or negotiating the renewal or sale of insurance coverage, insurance products, or insurance services or for any other marketing purpose, a registered firm shall own and have the exclusive use of expirations, records, and other written or electronically stored information directly related to an insurance application submitted by, or an insurance policy written through, the registered firm. No insurance company, managing general agent, surplus lines insurance broker, wholesale broker, group self-insurance fund, third-party administrator, or any other entity, other than a financial institution as defined in Section 1402 of this Code, shall use such expirations, records, or other written or electronically stored information to solicit, sell, or negotiate the renewal or sale of insurance coverage, insurance products, or insurance services to the insured or for any other marketing purposes, either directly or by providing such information to others, without, separate from the general agency contract, the written consent of the registered firm. However, such expirations, records, or other written or electronically stored information may be used for any purpose necessary for placing such business through the insurance producer including reviewing an application and issuing or renewing a policy and for loss control services.
    (d) With respect to a registered firm, this Section shall not apply:
        (1) when the insured requests either orally or in
    
writing that another registered firm obtain quotes for insurance from another insurance company or when the insured requests in writing individually or through another registered firm, that the insurance company renew the policy;
        (2) to policies in the Illinois Fair Plan, the
    
Illinois Automobile Insurance Plan, or the Illinois Assigned Risk Plan for coverage under the Workers' Compensation Act and the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act;
        (3) when the insurance producer is employed by or has
    
agreed to act exclusively or primarily for one company or group of affiliated insurance companies or to a producer who submits to the company or group of affiliated companies that are organized to transact business in this State as a reciprocal company, as defined in Article IV of this Code, every request or application for insurance for the classes and lines underwritten by the company or group of affiliated companies;
        (4) to policies providing life and accident and
    
health insurance;
        (5) when the registered firm is in default for
    
nonpayment of premiums under the contract with the insurer or is guilty of conversion of the insured's or insurer's premiums or its license is revoked by or surrendered to the Department;
        (6) to any insurance company's obligations under
    
Sections 143.17 and 143.17a of this Code; or
        (7) to any insurer that, separate from a producer or
    
registered firm, creates, develops, compiles, and assembles its own, identifiable expirations as defined in subsection (a).
    For purposes of this Section, an insurance producer shall be deemed to have agreed to act primarily for one company or a group of affiliated insurance companies if the producer (i) receives 75% or more of his or her insurance related commissions from one company or a group of affiliated companies or (ii) places 75% or more of his or her policies with one company or a group of affiliated companies.
    Nothing in this Section prohibits an insurance company, with respect to any items herein, from conveying to the insured or the registered firm any additional benefits or ownership rights including, but not limited to, the ownership of expirations on any policy issued or the imposition of further restrictions on the insurance company's use of the insured's personal information.
    (e) Nothing in this Section prevents a financial institution, as defined in Section 1402 of this Code, from obtaining from the insured, the insurer, or the registered firm the expiration dates of an insurance policy placed on collateral or otherwise used as security in connection with a loan made or serviced by the financial institution when the financial institution requires the expiration dates for evidence of insurance.
    (f) For purposes of this Section, "financial institution" does not include an insurance company, registered firm, managing general agent, surplus lines broker, wholesale broker, group self-funded insurance fund, or third-party administrator.
    (g) The Director may adopt rules in accordance with Section 401 of this Code for the enforcement of this Section.
    (h) This Section applies to the expirations relative to all policies of insurance bound, applied for, sold, renewed, or otherwise taking effect on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly.
