(225 ILCS 450/20.5)
(from Ch. 111, par. 5526)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Rehearing; surrender of license.
(a) In any hearing to refuse to issue, restore, or renew a license or to discipline a licensee or registrant, a copy of the
Committee's report shall be served upon the respondent by the Department,
either personally or as provided in this Act for the service of the notice of
hearing. Within 20 days after such service, the respondent may present to the
Department a motion in writing for a rehearing, which motion
shall specify the
particular grounds therefor. If no motion for rehearing is filed, then upon
the expiration of the time specified for filing such a motion, or if a motion
or rehearing is denied, then upon such denial the Secretary may enter an order in accordance with recommendations of the Committee except as provided in Section 20.7. If the respondent shall order from the reporting
service, and pay for a transcript of the record within the time for filing a
motion for rehearing, the 20 day period within which such a motion may be filed
shall commence upon the delivery of the transcript to the respondent.
(b) Whenever the Secretary believes that substantial justice has not been done in the disciplinary proceeding, the Secretary may order a rehearing by the same or different hearing officer.
(c) Upon the suspension or revocation of a registration or license, the registrant or licensee shall be required
to surrender to the Department the registration or license
issued by the Department, and upon
failure or refusal so to do, the Department may seize it.
