Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Brand Act. Provides that the Department of Agriculture shall make available in electronic format all recorded brands (rather than the Department shall publish all recorded brands in book form and shall publish supplemental lists at least once a year). Deletes language providing the Department shall, without charge, furnish one copy of the brand book supplements to the County Clerk and Sheriff of each county and that the general public may obtain copies by remitting to the Department the cost of printing and mailing each book and accompanying supplements. Repeals a provision providing that any slaughtering establishment or livestock market receiving branded livestock shall keep such records as required by the Department for a period of at least a year. Repeals a provision providing the Department, in cooperation with law enforcement officials, shall develop a uniform procedure whereby law enforcement officials shall alert livestock markets and livestock slaughtering establishments of reported livestock thefts. Effective immediately.
