Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

are consistent with the provisions of this Act, are within its meaning,
are in the best interest of the public, and benefit the general welfare. A currency exchange, group of currency exchanges, or association of currency exchanges must request, in writing, the Secretary's approval of the additional service prior to rendering such additional service to the public. Any approval under this Section shall be deemed an approval for all currency exchanges. Any currency exchange wishing to provide an additional service previously approved by the Secretary must provide written notice, on a form provided by the Department and available on its website, to the Secretary 30 days prior to offering the approved additional service to the public. The Secretary may charge an additional service investigation fee of $500 per application for a new additional service request. The additional service request shall be on a form provided by the Department and available on the Department's website. Within 15 days after receipt by the Department of an additional service request, the Secretary shall examine the additional service request for completeness and notify the requester of any defect. The requester must remedy the defect within 10 days after the mailing of the notification of the defect by the Secretary. Failure to remedy the defect within such time will void the additional service request.
If the Secretary determines that the additional service request is complete, the Secretary shall have 60 business days to approve or deny the additional service request. If the additional service request is denied, the Secretary shall send by United States mail notice of the denial to the requester at the address set forth in the additional service request, together with the reasons therefor stated with particularity that the additional service is not consistent with the provisions of this Act or in the best interest of the public and does not benefit the general welfare. If an additional service request is denied, the requester may, within 10 days after receipt of the denial, make a written request to the Secretary for a hearing on the additional service request denial. The hearing shall be set for a date after the receipt by the Secretary of the request for a hearing, and written notice of the time and place of the hearing shall be mailed to the requester no later than 15 days before the date of the hearing. The hearing shall be scheduled for a date within 56 days after the date of the receipt of the request for a hearing. The requester shall pay the actual cost of making the transcript of the hearing prior to the Secretary's issuing his or her decision following the hearing. If the Secretary denies the request for a new additional service, a currency exchange shall not offer the new additional service until a final administrative order has been entered permitting a currency exchange to offer the service.

If the Secretary revokes a previously approved authorization for an additional service request, the Secretary shall provide written notice to all affected currency exchange licensees, together with the reasons therefor stated with particularity, that the additional service is no longer consistent with the provisions of this Act or in the best interest of the public and does not benefit the general welfare. Upon receipt of the revocation notice, a currency exchange licensee, group of currency exchange licensees, or association of currency exchanges shall have 10 days to make a written request to the Secretary for a hearing, and the Department shall have 30 business days to schedule a future hearing. Written notice of the time and place of the hearing shall be mailed to the licensee no later than 10 business days before the date of the hearing.
