(10 ILCS 5/9-5) (from Ch. 46, par. 9-5)
    Sec. 9-5. Dissolved or inactive committee. Any political committee which, after having filed a statement of organization, dissolves as a political committee or determines that it will no longer receive any campaign contributions nor make any campaign expenditures shall notify the Board of that fact and file with the Board a final report with respect to its contributions and expenditures, including the final disposition of its funds and assets.
    In the event that a political committee dissolves, all contributions in its possession, after payment of the committee's outstanding liabilities, including staff salaries, shall be refunded to the contributors in amounts not exceeding their individual contributions, or transferred to other political or charitable organizations consistent with the positions of the committee or the candidates it represented. In no case shall these funds be used for the personal aggrandizement of any committee member or campaign worker.
