(210 ILCS 5/10g) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 157-8.10g)
    Sec. 10g. Notice of administrative actions; hearing procedures.
    (a) Notice of all administrative actions taken under this Act shall be effected by registered mail, certified mail, or personal service and shall set forth the particular reasons for the proposed action and provide the applicant or licensee with an opportunity to request a hearing. If a hearing request is not received within 10 days, the right to a hearing is waived.
    (b) The procedure governing hearings authorized by this Section shall be in accordance with rules promulgated by the Department consistent with this Act. A hearing shall be conducted by the Director or by an individual designated in writing by the Director as hearing officer. A full and complete record shall be kept of all proceedings, including notice of hearing, complaint, and all other documents in the nature of pleadings, written motions filed in the proceedings, and the report and orders of the Director and hearing officer. All testimony shall be reported but need not be transcribed unless the decision is appealed pursuant to Section 11 of this Act. A copy or copies of the transcript may be obtained by any interested party on payment of the cost of preparing such copy or copies.
    (c) The Director or hearing officer shall, upon his own motion or on the written request of any party to the proceeding, issue subpoenas requiring the attendance and testimony of witnesses and subpoenas duces tecum requiring the production of books, papers, records or memoranda. The fees of witnesses for attendance and travel shall be the same as the fees of witnesses before any circuit court of this State. Such fees shall be paid when the witness is excused from further attendance. When the witness is subpoenaed at the instance of the Director or hearing officer, such fees shall be paid in the same manner as other expenses of the Department. When the witness is subpoenaed at the instance of any other party to a proceeding, the Department may require that the cost of service of the subpoena or subpoena duces tecum and the fee of the witness be borne by the party at whose instance the witness is summoned. In such case, the Department, in its discretion, may require a deposit to cover the cost of such service and witness fees. A subpoena or subpoena duces tecum issued under this Section shall be served in the same manner as a subpoena issued by a court.
    (d) Any circuit court of this State, upon the application of the Director or the application of any other party to the proceeding, may, in its discretion, compel the attendance of witnesses, the production of books, papers, records or memoranda, and the giving of testimony before the Director or hearing officer conducting an investigation or holding a hearing authorized by this Act, by an attachment for contempt, or otherwise, in the same manner as production of evidence may be compelled before the court.
    (e) The Director or hearing officer, or any party in a hearing before the Department, may cause the deposition of witnesses within the State to be taken in the manner prescribed by law for depositions in civil actions in courts of this State, and may compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of books, papers, records or memoranda.
    (f) The Director or Hearing Officer shall make findings of fact in such hearing and the Director shall render his decision within 60 days after the termination or waiving of the hearing unless additional time is required by him for a proper disposition of the matter. When the hearing has been conducted by a hearing officer, the Director shall review the record and findings of fact before rendering a decision. A copy of the findings of fact and decision of the Director shall be served upon the applicant or licensee in person, by registered mail, or by certified mail in the same manner as the service of the notice of hearing. The decision denying, suspending, or revoking a license shall become final 35 days after it is mailed or served, unless the applicant or licensee, within the 35-day period, petitions for review pursuant to Section 11 of this Act.
