(b) If the Secretary of State determines that a ground exists for administratively dissolving a limited partnership, the Secretary of State shall file a record of the determination and send a copy of the filed record to the limited partnership's agent for service of process in this State, or if the limited partnership does not appoint and maintain a proper agent, to the limited partnership's designated office.
(c) If within 60 days after service of the copy of the record of determination the limited partnership does not correct each ground for dissolution or demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the Secretary of State that each ground determined by the Secretary of State does not exist, the Secretary of State shall administratively dissolve the limited partnership by preparing, signing, and filing a declaration of dissolution that states the grounds for dissolution. The Secretary of State shall send a copy to the limited partnership's agent for service of process in this State, or if the limited partnership does not appoint and maintain a proper agent, to the limited partnership's designated office.

(e) The administrative dissolution of a limited partnership does not terminate the authority of its agent for service of process.
(f) The Secretary of State shall, from information received from the Illinois Commerce Commission, compile and keep a list of all domestic limited partnerships that are regulated pursuant to the provisions of the Public Utilities Act, or the Collateral Recovery Act, or the Personal Property Storage Act, or Chapter 18a, 18c, or 18d of the Illinois Vehicle Code and which hold, as a prerequisite for doing business in this State, any franchise, license, permit, or right to engage in any business regulated by such Acts.
(g) Each month the Secretary of State shall, by written notice, advise the Chief Clerk of the Illinois Commerce Commission of any domestic limited partnership on the list maintained under subsection (f) that has been dissolved within the month.
