Investigation and hearing.
The Department may upon its own
motion and shall upon the
complaint in writing of any person setting forth facts which if proved
would constitute grounds under Section 9 investigate the actions of any
applicant or any person or persons
holding or claiming to hold a license. The Department shall, before
refusing to issue or renew, and before revocation of a
license, at least 10 days prior to the date set for the hearing, notify in
writing the applicant for or holder of a license, hereinafter called the
respondent, that a hearing will be held on the date designated to determine
whether the respondent is privileged to hold such license. Such written notice
may be served by delivery of the same
personally to the respondent, or by mailing the same by registered or
certified mail to the place of business last theretofore specified by the
respondent in the last notification to the Department. The Director,
following the hearing, shall issue, renew, refuse to issue or renew, reinstate,
or revoke the license.
The Department, over the signature of the Director is authorized to
subpoena and bring before the Department any person or persons in this
State and to take testimony either orally or by deposition or by exhibit,
with the same fees and mileage and in the same manner as prescribed by law
in judicial proceedings in civil cases in circuit courts
of this State.
The Director may issue subpoenas duces tecum to command the production of any
or all records relating to the person.
