(625 ILCS 5/18c-4206) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-4206)
    Sec. 18c-4206. Dual operations.
    (1) Dual common/contract operations. No person shall hold both a household goods common carrier certificate and a household goods contract carrier permit unless the Commission determines, or has determined, that both licenses may be held consistent with the public interest and authorizes such dual licensing. Issuance of household goods contract carrier authority after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1995 to a person that already holds household goods common carrier authority, or vice versa, shall be rebuttably presumed inconsistent with the public interest if the two authorities would be duplicative, in whole or in part.
    (2) Merger of duplicative operating rights. The Commission may, except as otherwise provided in this subsection, order that duplicative operating rights, whether household goods common carrier or household goods contract carrier or both, be merged into a single license and may impose such requirements upon operations under such license as will promote the public interest and effectuate the purposes of this Chapter. The power of the Commission to order merger shall not extend to duplicative operating rights in existence on the effective date of this Chapter.
