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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 61, par. 3.11)
Resident fur buyer permits.
Any individual who is a resident of this State, who, within
this State, receives, collects or buys, or who acts as an
agent or broker in the receipt, collection or purchase of the green
hides of fur-bearing mammals, protected by this Act, shall be a resident fur
buyer in the meaning of this Act. Resident fur buyer's permits
shall be issued by the Department. The annual fee for each resident
fur buyer's permit shall be $50.00. All resident fur
buyer permits shall expire on March 31 of each year. A holder
of a valid resident
fur buyer permit may buy, sell, possess, transport, and ship the
green hides of any legally taken fur-bearing mammals; provided, however, that failure to establish
the legality or origin of the green hides of fur-bearing mammals
shall be prima facie evidence that such green hides of fur-bearing
mammals are contraband within the State of Illinois. Nothing in this Section
shall exempt any permittee from complying with any federal laws, rules or
regulations which may apply to the green hides of fur-bearing
mammals. A person who holds a fur tanner's permit under Section 3.16 of this Code is exempt under this Section if the person is not engaged in the business of receiving green hides for the purpose of buying or selling the hides, whether green, dressed, processed, or tanned and the hides which have been tanned or processed are returned to the person who submitted the hides for processing or tanning.
