(225 ILCS 340/26) (from Ch. 111, par. 6626)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 26. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board shall present to the Secretary its written report of its findings and recommendations. A copy of the report shall be served upon the accused person, either personally or to the address of record. The Board may take into consideration in making its recommendations for discipline all facts and circumstances bearing upon the reasonableness of the conduct of the respondent and the potential for future harm to the public, including but not limited to previous discipline by the Department, intent, degree of harm to the public and likelihood of harm in the future, any restitution made, and whether the incident or incidents complained of appear to be isolated or a pattern of conduct. In making its recommendations for discipline, the Board shall endeavor to ensure that the severity of the discipline recommended bears some reasonable relationship to the severity of the violation. Within 20 days after such service, the accused person may present to the Department a motion in writing for a rehearing, which shall specify the particular grounds for rehearing. If the accused person orders and pays for a transcript of the record as provided in this Section, the time elapsing after payment and before the transcript is ready for delivery shall not be counted as part of such 20 days. If no motion for rehearing is filed, then upon the expiration of the time specified for filing the motion, or if a motion for rehearing is denied, then upon such denial, the Secretary may enter an order in accordance with recommendations of the Board.
    Whenever the Secretary is not satisfied that substantial justice has been done, he may order a rehearing by the same or another special board. At the expiration of the time specified for filing a motion for a rehearing, the Secretary has the right to take the action recommended by the Board. Upon the suspension or revocation of his license, a licensee shall be required to surrender his license to the Department, and upon his failure or refusal to do so, the Department shall have the right to seize the same.
