(225 ILCS 5/21)
(from Ch. 111, par. 7621)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
Findings of Board.
At the conclusion of the hearing
the Board shall present to the Secretary a written report of its findings of fact, conclusions of law,
and recommendations. The report shall contain a finding of 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 Secretary.
The report of findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations of the Board shall be the basis
for the Department's order refusing to issue, restore, or renew a license, or otherwise disciplining a licensee. If the Secretary disagrees with the report of the Board, the Secretary 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.
