(625 ILCS 5/18c-2108)
(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-2108)
Orders in other than household goods carriers
authority and enforcement proceedings.
(1) Emergency Orders.
The Commission may, on request, and upon a finding that
urgent and immediate public need requires emergency temporary
action, issue orders granting emergency temporary relief in other than
household goods carrier authority or enforcement cases.
The Commission shall promptly post notice of any such request
at a prominent location at the Commission offices in
Springfield and Chicago, and where action affecting a specific
named person is requested shall promptly notify the person by
telephone or telegram. Such orders may be issued without
hearing and shall remain in effect pending notice and hearing
in accordance with subsection (1) of Section 18c-2101 of
this Chapter, but shall not remain in effect for a period
exceeding 45 days from issuance, and shall not be renewed
or extended. Any person in opposition to such relief shall
be entitled, on request, to an oral hearing on the
request for emergency temporary relief. The filing
or granting of such request for oral hearing shall not,
unless the Commission so provides, stay the issuance or
effect of any emergency temporary order under this
(2) Interim Orders.
The Commission may, on request, issue interim orders making
temporary disposition of issues in a proceeding, other than a household
goods carrier authority or enforcement proceeding, after notice
and hearing on written submissions. Such orders shall remain
in effect pending final disposition in accordance with Section
18c-2102 of this Chapter unless otherwise provided
in the interim order or the interim order is modified or
rescinded by the Commission. Any person in opposition to
such relief shall be entitled, on request, to an oral hearing
on the request for temporary relief. The filing or granting
of such a request for oral hearing shall not, unless the
Commission so provides, stay the issuance or effect of any
interim order under this subsection. A request for oral
hearing on a request for temporary relief shall, unless
otherwise specified by the party making the request for oral
hearing, be construed as a request for oral hearing on the
application for permanent relief as well.
(3) Final orders.
Any party to a proceeding before the Commission shall be
entitled, on timely written request, to an oral hearing prior
to issuance of a final order in the proceeding. Where the
Commission has issued an interim order and no timely request
for oral hearing has been filed or is pending, the Commission
may issue a final order without oral hearing, except in household
goods carrier authority proceedings.
(4) Section not applicable to household goods carrier authority
proceedings. Nothing in this Section shall have application to any
household goods carrier authority proceeding.
