(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
The Secretary may temporarily
suspend the license of a licensee without a hearing, simultaneously with the institution of proceedings
for a hearing provided for in Section 70-80
of this Act, if the Secretary
finds that evidence in his or her possession indicates that continuation in
practice would constitute an imminent danger to the public. In the event
that the Secretary suspends, temporarily, this license without a hearing, a
hearing by the Department must be held within 30 days after the
suspension has occurred, and be concluded without appreciable delay.
Proceedings for judicial review shall be commenced in the circuit court
of the county in which the party applying for review resides; but if the
party is not a resident of this State, the venue shall be in Sangamon County.
