Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

The Commission may exempt a carrier from the requirement of Sections 18c-4901, 18c-4902, 18c-4903, and 18c-4904 of this Chapter if it determines that the carrier has the financial ability to pay for any and all damages the liability for which would otherwise be assumed by an insurance or surety company under the referenced sections. Each carrier so exempted shall file periodic reports, at such intervals as the Commission shall specify, showing its continuing ability to act as a self-insurer. The Commission may rescind an exemption on 10 days' notice if rescission appears necessary to protect the public. Upon the granting or rescission of a self-insured status of a carrier by the Commission, the Commission shall immediately notify, in writing, the Illinois Department of Transportation of the name, address, and other pertinent information required by the Department of Transportation concerning the status of the carrier.
