(235 ILCS 5/7-6)
(from Ch. 43, par. 150)
All proceedings for the revocation or suspension of licenses
of manufacturers, distributors, importing distributors, non-resident dealers,
importers, non-beverage users, railroads, airplanes and boats shall be
before the State Commission.
All such proceedings and all proceedings
for the revocation or suspension of a retailer's license before the
State commission shall be in accordance with rules and regulations
established by it not inconsistent with law. However, no such license
shall be so revoked or suspended except after a hearing by the State
commission with reasonable notice to the licensee served by registered
or certified mail with return receipt requested at least 10 days
the hearings at the last known place of business of the licensee and
after an opportunity to appear and defend. Such notice shall
time and place of the hearing, the nature of the charges, the
specific provisions of the Act and rules violated, and the specific facts
supporting the charges or violation. The
findings of the Commission shall be predicated upon competent evidence.
The revocation of a local license shall automatically result in the
revocation of a State license.
Upon notification by the Illinois Department of Revenue, the State
Commission, in accordance with Section 3-12, may refuse the issuance or renewal of a license, fine a licensee, or suspend or revoke any license issued by the State Commission if the licensee or license applicant has
provisions of Section 3 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act.
All procedures for the suspension or revocation
of a license, as enumerated above, are applicable to the levying of fines
for violations of this Act or any rule or regulation issued pursuant thereto.
