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.

425 ILCS 35/2.2

    (425 ILCS 35/2.2)
    Sec. 2.2. Consumer displays. Each consumer display shall be handled by a competent individual who has received training from a consumer fireworks training class approved by the Office of the State Fire Marshal. Applications for consumer display permits shall be made in writing at least 15 days in advance of the date of the display, unless agreed to otherwise by the local jurisdiction issuing the permit and the fire chief of the jurisdiction in which the display will occur. After a permit has been granted, sales, possession, use, and distribution of consumer fireworks for display shall be lawful for that purpose only. No permit granted hereunder shall be transferable.
    Permits may be granted hereunder to any adult individual applying for a permit who provides proof that he or she has received the requisite training. The local jurisdiction issuing the permit is authorized to conduct a criminal background check of the applicant as a condition of issuing a permit.
    A permit shall be issued only after inspection of the display site by the fire chief providing fire protection coverage to the area of display, or his or her designee, to determine that the display is in full compliance with the rules adopted by the State Fire Marshal. Nothing in this Section shall prohibit the issuer of a permit from adopting more stringent rules.
