09700HB5877ham001- 10 -LRB097 20200 MRW 68053 a

8changing Section 7 as follows:
 
9    (5 ILCS 140/7)  (from Ch. 116, par. 207)
10    Sec. 7. Exemptions.
11    (1) When a request is made to inspect or copy a public
12record that contains information that is exempt from disclosure
13under this Section, but also contains information that is not
14exempt from disclosure, the public body may elect to redact the
15information that is exempt. The public body shall make the

19        (a) Information specifically prohibited from
20    disclosure by federal or State law or rules and regulations

8    records, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly
9    unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, unless the
10    disclosure is consented to in writing by the individual
11    subjects of the information. "Unwarranted invasion of
12    personal privacy" means the disclosure of information that
13    is highly personal or objectionable to a reasonable person

17    duties of public employees and officials shall not be
18    considered an invasion of personal privacy.
19        (d) Records in the possession of any public body
20    created in the course of administrative enforcement
21    proceedings, and any law enforcement or correctional
22    agency for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent

7        hearing;

9        confidential source, confidential information
10        furnished only by the confidential source, or persons

13        penal agencies; except that the identities of
14        witnesses to traffic accidents, traffic accident
15        reports, and rescue reports shall be provided by
16        agencies of local government, except when disclosure
17        would interfere with an active criminal investigation
18        conducted by the agency that is the recipient of the
19        request;
20            (v) disclose unique or specialized investigative
21        techniques other than those generally used and known or
22        disclose internal documents of correctional agencies

12    identified by the head of the public body. The exemption
13    provided in this paragraph (f) extends to all those records
14    of officers and agencies of the General Assembly that
15    pertain to the preparation of legislative documents.

17    information obtained from a person or business where the
18    trade secrets or commercial or financial information are

23    preparation of a bid solicitation shall be exempt until an
