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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.
(505 ILCS 80/9)
(from Ch. 5, par. 55.9)
On the basis of information secured from entities
holding a license to sell fertilizers in Illinois, the
following values will be used for purposes of assessing penalties as provided
by Section 8 of this Act:
$6.00 per unit (30¢ per pound)
$1.44 per unit (7.2¢ per pound)
$4.00 per unit (20¢ per pound)
$2.00 per unit (10¢ per pound).
In the event that the actual retail price is substantially greater
than the value as calculated at the above rates, the penalty shall be based
on the retail price. In addition, the Director may require that any lot
subject to penalty be returned to the registrant and all costs involved in the
return of such goods shall be borne by the registrant. However, in the case of
bulk fertilizers, the entity offering fertilizer for sale in bulk shall be
responsible for guaranteeing such fertilizer and shall be liable for all
penalties assessed under the provisions of Section 8.
