Any member of the Board, or any party affected by a final order of the Board, may file a written motion to reconsider.  The motion shall set forth in specific detail the grounds alleged for reconsideration and must be filed with the Board not later than 21 days after the effective date of the Board's order, subject to Code Section 1.6.

 

a)         A Motion to Reconsider a Final Board Order imposing a civil penalty for a delinquently filed report or reports, when the respondent failed to timely file an appeal of the penalty, must state the reasons the respondent failed to submit an appeal in a timely manner and the basis for the appeal itself. Motions that fail to state these reasons and basis will be denied by the Board as failing to state adequate grounds for reconsideration of the final Board order.

c)         The Board may consider, discuss and take action upon the motion through a conference telephone call in lieu of an in-person meeting.  Notice shall be given to the media in advance of the conference call, the call shall be broadcast over a speaker phone or other similar device at both the permanent and branch offices of the Board, and the broadcast shall be open to the media and public.  The entire conference call shall also be recorded by a certified court reporter.
