(35 ILCS 171/9)
Limited binding and beneficial effect.
(a) The Agreement authorized by this Act binds and inures only to the
benefit of this State and the other member states. No person, other than a
member state, is an intended beneficiary of the Agreement. Any benefit to a
person other than a state is established by the law of this State and the other
member states and not by the terms of the Agreement.
(b) Consistent with subsection (a), no person shall have any cause of action
or defense under the Agreement or by virtue of this State's approval of the
Agreement. No person may challenge, in any action brought under any provision
of law, any action or inaction by any department, agency, or other
instrumentality of this State, or any political subdivision of this State on
the ground that the action or inaction is inconsistent with the Agreement.
(c) No law of this State, or the application thereof, may be declared
invalid as to any person or circumstance on the ground that the provision or
application is inconsistent with the Agreement.
