fulfilled in a timely manner, the Department shall furnish conviction
information to requesters in accordance with the provisions of this Act.
The Department may give priority to requests for conviction information
from non-criminal justice agencies over other requests submitted pursuant
to this Act.
(B) The Department shall attempt to honor requests for conviction
information made pursuant to this Act in the shortest time possible.
Subject to the dissemination priorities of subsection (A) of this Section,
