(225 ILCS 427/70)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 70. Penalty for insufficient funds; payments. Any person who:
        (1) delivers a check or other payment to the
Department that is returned to the Department unpaid by the financial institution upon which it is drawn; or
        (2) presents a credit or debit card for payment that
is invalid or expired or against which charges by the Department are declined or dishonored;
shall pay to the Department, in addition to the amount already owed to the Department, a fine of $50. The Department shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines shall be paid to the Department by certified check or money order within 30 calendar days after notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days from the date of the notification, the person has failed to submit the necessary remittance, the Department shall automatically terminate the license or deny the application, without hearing. After termination or denial, the person seeking a license shall apply to the Department for restoration or issuance of the license and pay all fees and fines due to the Department. The Department may establish a fee for the processing of an application for restoration of a license to pay all expenses of processing this application. The Secretary may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases where the Secretary finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
