DISEASED ANIMALS-REPORTING                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Diseased  Animals  Act.   Provides  that  the      
   Department  of Agriculture may designate a disease as a "contagious or      
   infectious disease" or as a "reportable  disease"  by  rule.  Provides      
   that  a  veterinarian  who  has  information  on  the existence of any      
   reportable  (rather  than  contagious  or  infectious)  disease  among      
   animals in this State, who fails to report it, shall be  guilty  of  a      
   business  offense  (rather than a Class A misdemeanor), with a fine of      
   not more than $1,000.  Changes provisions  directing  that  owners  of      
   swine  who  do  not  report  the existence of hog cholera or any other      
   contagious or infectious swine  disease  and  who  transport  diseased      
   swine  shall  be  liable  to  anyone  suffering damage as a result, to      
   identical provisions  applying  to  all  owners  of  animals  and  any      
   contagious  or  infectious disease.  Amends the Illinois Swine Disease      
   Control and  Eradication  Act  to  define  "contagious  or  infectious      
   disease" as it is defined in the Illinois Diseased Animals Act.  Makes      
   other changes.                                                              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. Agriculture)                                       
          There will be no fiscal impact on the Department.
