Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

505 ILCS 110/7

    (505 ILCS 110/7) (from Ch. 5, par. 407)
    Sec. 7. Exemptions.
    (a) The provisions of Sections 4 through 4.5 and Sections 5 and 5.1 do not apply:
        (1) To seed or grain not intended for sowing purposes.
        (2) To seed in storage in, or being transported or
consigned to a cleaning or conditioning establishment for cleaning or conditioning, provided, that the invoice or labeling accompanying any shipment of said seed bears the statement "seed for conditioning"; and provided that any labeling or other representation which may be made with respect to the uncleaned or unconditioned seed shall be subject to this Act.
        (3) To any carrier in respect to any seed transported
or delivered for transportation in the ordinary course of its business as a carrier; provided, that such carrier is not engaged in producing, processing, or marketing agricultural, vegetable or other seeds designated by the Department of Agriculture subject to the provisions of this Act.
    (b) The provisions of Sections 4, 4.4, 4.5, 6, and 10, and of paragraphs (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (8), and (11) of Section 5, do not apply to unpatented, untreated seed that is free of noxious and exotic weed seeds and that is distributed within this State by means of interpersonal non-commercial seed sharing activities, including, but not limited to, seed libraries and seed swap events. A seed library or seed swap event organizer shall adopt labeling or record-keeping standards to identify the year, species or common name, and source of any non-commercially packaged seed received by the seed library or offered at a seed swap event, and shall make this information available to the Department upon request in the course of an investigation of an alleged violation of the provisions in this Act. Information maintained by seed libraries shall be provided to the Department to the extent permissible under the Library Records Confidentiality Act.
