6    Sec. 7. Exemptions.
7    (1) When a request is made to inspect or copy a public
8record that contains information that is exempt from disclosure
9under this Section, but also contains information that is not
10exempt from disclosure, the public body may elect to redact the
11information that is exempt. The public body shall make the
12remaining information available for inspection and copying.
13Subject to this requirement, the following shall be exempt from
14inspection and copying:
15        (a) Information specifically prohibited from
16    disclosure by federal or State law or rules and regulations

1    status of one or more individual subjects.
2        (c) Personal information contained within public
3    records, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly
4    unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, unless the
5    disclosure is consented to in writing by the individual
6    subjects of the information. "Unwarranted invasion of
7    personal privacy" means the disclosure of information that
8    is highly personal or objectionable to a reasonable person
9    and in which the subject's right to privacy outweighs any
10    legitimate public interest in obtaining the information.

12    duties of public employees and officials shall not be
13    considered an invasion of personal privacy.
14        (d) Records in the possession of any public body
15    created in the course of administrative enforcement
16    proceedings, and any law enforcement or correctional
17    agency for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent

21        conducted by any law enforcement or correctional
22        agency that is the recipient of the request;
23            (ii) interfere with active administrative
24        enforcement proceedings conducted by the public body
25        that is the recipient of the request;
26            (iii) create a substantial likelihood that a

1        person will be deprived of a fair trial or an impartial
2        hearing;
3            (iv) unavoidably disclose the identity of a
4        confidential source, confidential information
5        furnished only by the confidential source, or persons
6        who file complaints with or provide information to
7        administrative, investigative, law enforcement, or
8        penal agencies; except that the identities of
9        witnesses to traffic accidents, traffic accident
10        reports, and rescue reports shall be provided by
11        agencies of local government, except when disclosure
12        would interfere with an active criminal investigation
13        conducted by the agency that is the recipient of the
14        request;
15            (v) disclose unique or specialized investigative
16        techniques other than those generally used and known or
17        disclose internal documents of correctional agencies
18        related to detection, observation or investigation of
19        incidents of crime or misconduct, and disclosure would
20        result in demonstrable harm to the agency or public
21        body that is the recipient of the request;
22            (vi) endanger the life or physical safety of law
23        enforcement personnel or any other person; or

3    memoranda and other records in which opinions are
4    expressed, or policies or actions are formulated, except

8    provided in this paragraph (f) extends to all those records
9    of officers and agencies of the General Assembly that
10    pertain to the preparation of legislative documents.
11        (g) Trade secrets and commercial or financial
12    information obtained from a person or business where the
13    trade secrets or commercial or financial information are
14    furnished under a claim that they are proprietary,
15    privileged or confidential, and that disclosure of the
16    trade secrets or commercial or financial information would
17    cause competitive harm to the person or business, and only
18    insofar as the claim directly applies to the records
19    requested.
20        The information included under this exemption includes
21    all trade secrets and commercial or financial information

17    is made. Information prepared by or for the body in
18    preparation of a bid solicitation shall be exempt until an
19    award or final selection is made.

21    designs, drawings and research data obtained or produced by
