Removes a provision requiring the Department of Agriculture to serve as the Council's fiscal agent. Inserts provisions authorizing the Council to apply for and establish a not-for-profit corporation; specifying that the Council is not a State Agency and that its funds shall be considered private funds and held in an appropriate account outside of the State Treasury; exempting the Council from the Public Funds Investment Act and Illinois Procurement Code; providing that the Council may be assisted in carrying out its functions by personnel of the Department of Agriculture; and authorizing the development of a labeling and certification program different than the "Illinois Product" labeling program. Inserts a severability clause. Makes other technical changes. Amends the Department of Agriculture Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that the definition of "Illinois Product" does not imply that the product meets the definition of "local farm or food products" as defined in the Local Food, Farms, and Jobs Act.
