(225 ILCS 10/16) (from Ch. 23, par. 2226)
    Sec. 16. (a) Any child care facility receiving a child for care or supervision from a foreign state or country shall report that child to the Department in the same manner as is required for reporting other children.
    (b) A person, agency or organization, other than a licensed child care institution or child welfare agency, may not receive a foreign child without prior notice to and approval of the Department.
    (c) In all instances the Department may require a guaranty that a child accepted for care or supervision from a foreign state or country will not become a public charge upon the State of Illinois.
    (d) Reports to the Department must be made, as required.
    (e) The Department may enter into agreements with public or voluntary social agencies headquartered in states adjacent to the State of Illinois, regarding the placement of children in licensed foster family homes within the boundaries of Illinois, if the agencies meet the standards and criteria required for license as a child welfare agency in Illinois. The agreements may allow foreign agencies to place and supervise children for whom they have responsibility within the State of Illinois, without regard to paragraph (a) of this Section. These agreements must, however, include a requirement that the agencies cooperate fully with the Department in its inquiry or investigation into the activities and standards of those agencies, and provide that the Department may, at any time upon 15 days written notice to an agency by registered mail, void the agreement and require the observance of paragraph (a) of this Section.
