d) The Department may issue licenses or renewals for periods of not less than six months nor more than 18 months for facilities with annual licenses and not less than 18 months nor more than 30 months for facilities with 2-year licenses in order to distribute the expiration dates of such licenses throughout the calendar year. Fees for such licenses shall be prorated on the basis of the portion of a year for which they are issued. (Section 3-110 of the Act)
e) The licensee shall qualify for issuance of a two-year license if the licensee has met the criteria contained in Section 3-110(b) of the Act for the last 24 consecutive months.
