(225 ILCS 84/115)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2030)
    Sec. 115. Board findings and recommendations. At the conclusion of a hearing, the Board shall present to the Secretary a written report of its findings 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 and recommendations of the Board shall be the basis for the Department's order for the refusal or for the granting of a license, unless the Secretary determines that the Board report is contrary to the manifest weight of the evidence, in which case the Secretary may issue an order in contravention to the Board report. A Board finding is not admissible in evidence against the person in a criminal prosecution brought for a violation of this Act, but the hearing and finding are not a bar to a criminal prosecution brought for a violation of this Act.
