(505 ILCS 90/22.04)
(from Ch. 5, par. 82d)
The Director, upon finding injurious
insects or other pests or plant diseases present in a nursery or in nursery
stock, or a not viable nursery stock as set forth in Section 29, may issue
a stop-sale order against such plants. Plants placed on stop-sale shall be
conspicuously tagged, either individually or in blocks, provided that such
infested stock is clearly separable, if possible, from noninfested stock,
and that such physical separation is effected and maintained. The
stop-sale order shall contain the following:
(1) the reason for the issuance of the stop-sale order;
(2) a description of the nursery stock placed on stop-sale;
(3) the date upon which such order became effective.
Stop-sale tags shall not be removed from nursery stock until such stock
meets the requirements of this Act and removal is authorized by written permission
of the Director or upon disposal of the infested stock in a manner
authorized by the Director. The Director may restrict or restrain the
transportation of any nursery stock which has been placed on stop-sale, or
may prescribe conditions under which such nursery stock may be transported.
It is unlawful to sell, install or otherwise distribute nursery
stock which has been placed on stop-sale.
