(1949 Rev., S. 4668; P.A. 97-164, S. 7; P.A. 11-100, S. 9.)
History: P.A. 97-164 added reference to “limited liability company”, increased the penalty for engaging in business without a license to a class D felony, increased the penalty to a class A misdemeanor for violating provisions of the chapter for which no other penalty is provided, neglecting to keep a record-keeping system or make the required entries, refusing to allow inspection of such system and receiving property from a minor and designated said latter penalty provision as new Subsec. (b); P.A. 11-100 made conforming changes re definitions in Sec. 21-39a added by same act, amended Subsec. (a) to add “suspended or” and delete provision re treble forfeiture, amended Subsec. (b) to delete provision re record-keeping system, and made technical changes.
