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.

30 ILCS 500/45-15

    (30 ILCS 500/45-15)
    Sec. 45-15. Soybean oil-based ink and vegetable oil-based ink.
    (a) As used in this Section:
    "Digital printing" means a printing method which includes, but is not limited to, the electrostatic process of transferring ink or toner to a substrate. This process may involve the use of photo imaging plates, photoreceptor drums, or belts which hold an electrostatic charge. "Digital printing" is also defined as a process of transferring ink through a print head directly to a substrate, as is done with ink-jet printers.
    "Offset printing" means lithography, flexography, gravure, or letterpress. "Offset printing" involves the process of transferring ink through static or fixed image plates using an impact method of pressing ink into a substrate.
    (b) Contracts requiring the procurement of offset printing services shall specify the use of soybean oil-based ink or vegetable oil-based ink unless a State purchasing officer determines that another type of ink is required to assure high quality and reasonable pricing of the printed product.
    This Section does not apply to digital printing services.
