(225 ILCS 90/22) (from Ch. 111, par. 4272)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 22. Findings and Recommendations. At the conclusion of the hearing the Board shall present to the Director a written report of its findings and recommendations. The report shall contain a finding whether or not the accused person violated this Act or failed to comply with the conditions required in this Act. The Board shall specify the nature of the violation or failure to comply, and shall make its recommendations to the Director.
    The report of findings and recommendations of the Board shall be the basis for the Department's order or refusal or for the granting of a license or permit unless the Director shall determine that the Board report is contrary to the manifest weight of the evidence, in which case the Director may issue an order in contravention of the Board report. The finding is not admissible in evidence against the person in a criminal prosecution brought for the violation of this Act, but the hearing and finding are not a bar to a criminal prosecution brought for the violation of this Act.
