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.

625 ILCS 5/18a-501

    (625 ILCS 5/18a-501) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18a-501)
    Sec. 18a-501. Liens against relocated vehicles. Unauthorized vehicles removed and stored by a commercial vehicle relocator in compliance with this Chapter shall be subject to a possessory lien for services pursuant to the Labor and Storage Lien (Small Amount) Act, and the provisions of Section 1 of that Act relating to notice and implied consent shall be deemed satisfied by compliance with Section 18a-302 and item (10) of Section 18a-300. In no event shall such lien be greater than the rate or rates established in accordance with item (6) of Section 18a-200. In no event shall such lien be increased or altered to reflect any charge for services or materials rendered in addition to those authorized by this Act. Every such lien shall be payable by use of any major credit card, in addition to being payable in cash. Upon receipt of a properly signed credit card receipt, a relocator shall become a holder in due course, and neither the holder of the credit card nor the company which issued the credit card may thereafter refuse to remit payment in the amount shown on the credit card receipt minus the ordinary charge assessed by the credit card company for processing the charge. The Commission may adopt regulations governing acceptance of credit cards by a relocator.
