(225 ILCS 107/110)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
Findings and recommendations.
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 whether the licensee 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 recommendation of
the Board shall be the basis for the Department's order for refusing to issue, restore, or renew a license, or otherwise discipline a licensee. If the Secretary disagrees with the
recommendations of the Board, the Secretary may issue an order in
contravention of the Board recommendations. 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 findings are not a bar to a criminal prosecution brought
for the violation of this Act.
