Community Bankers Association of Illinois


House Bill 497, the CBAI-initiated legislation which would prevent an industrial loan company (ILC) from establishing a branch on or adjacent to its commercial affiliate, has cleared the Illinois House Committee on Financial Institutions by a vote of 19-0-1.

House Bill 497 was presented in committee by Representative Joe Lyons (D-Chicago). Other key sponsors include Bill Mitchell (R-Forsyth), Mike Boland (D-Moline), Dan Burke (D-Chicago), and Chapin Rose (R-Charleston). In addition to CBAI, the bill is strongly supported by the United Food and Commercial Workers, the Illinois Bankers Association, and the Illinois League of Financial Institutions.

House Bill 497 is currently on third reading in the House, however, continued advocacy is required to ensure passage. Please make every effort to contact your state representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor HB 497. Members will return to Springfield today, so please contact them as soon as possible!
