(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
Returned checks; fines.
Any person who delivers a check or other
payment to the Department that is returned to the Department unpaid by the
financial institution upon which it is drawn shall pay to the Department, in
addition to the amount already owed to the Department, a fine of $50. The
fines imposed by this Section are in addition to any other discipline provided
under this Act for unlicensed practice or practice on a nonrenewed license.
The Department shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines shall be
paid to the Department by certified check or money order within 30 calendar
days of the notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days from the date of
the notification, the person has failed to submit the necessary remittance,
the Department shall automatically terminate the license or deny the
application, without hearing. If, after termination or denial, the person
seeks a license, he or she shall apply to the Department for restoration or
issuance of the license and pay all fees and fines due to the Department.
The Department may establish a fee for the processing of an application for
restoration of a license to pay all expenses of processing this application.
The Secretary may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases
where the Secretary finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily
