(225 ILCS 107/145)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
Summary suspension of license.
The Secretary may
summarily suspend the license of a professional counselor or a clinical
professional counselor without a hearing, simultaneously with the
institution of proceedings for a hearing provided for in Section 90 of this
Act, if the Secretary finds that the evidence
indicates that the continuation of practice by the professional counselor
or clinical professional
counselor would constitute an imminent danger to
the public. In the event that the Secretary summarily suspends the license
of an individual without a hearing, a hearing must be commenced within 30 days
after the suspension has occurred and shall be concluded as expeditiously as possible.
