(225 ILCS 645/16.1) (from Ch. 111, par. 416.1)
    Sec. 16.1. A clearing agency providing services for clearees in Illinois, is responsible for the financial obligations of such clearees arising from livestock purchases, and must file a bond with the Department on prescribed forms. Such bond shall be in an amount and conditioned upon such terms so as to meet the requirements of this Act. In any case where a clearing agency has sufficient bond posted with the United States Department of Agriculture, Packers and Stockyards, Agricultural Marketing Service, or any successor agency, to satisfy the provisions of this Act, a duplicate original of such bond shall be furnished to the Department, and such bond shall replace the State bond as if it were the State bond.
    The Director shall be named as trustee on any such bond. Any such bond shall be continuous in nature and shall provide that it may not be cancelled without 30 days prior written notice of termination to the Department.
