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.

    (510 ILCS 65/5) (from Ch. 8, par. 955)
    Sec. 5. Quarantine and branding of reactors. In the event an Illinois owner voluntarily elects to have his equidae tested and a reactor is found, the reactor shall be (a) quarantined until death or until released by a written notice from the Department and (b) permanently identified with a freezemarking brand which shall be applied by an employee of the Department, a veterinarian in the employ of the Illinois Racing Board, or an employee of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the United States Department of Agriculture or any successor agency. The freezemarking brand shall be not less than 2 inches in height, shall be applied to the left side of the neck of the reactor, and the identifying mark shall be "33" followed by the letter "A" and a number designated by the Department to indicate individual identification.
    Any animal under 12 months of age which reacts positively to an official test for EIA shall be quarantined and retested at 12 months of age. If positive at that time, it shall be subject to permanent identification as a reactor and continue under quarantine. Foals being nursed by reactor dams shall be quarantined until they are weaned from their dams and have a negative official test for EIA not less than 60 days following their weaning.
