<Text of section effective Jan. 1, 2023. See, also, text of section 225 ILCS 63/145, effective until Jan. 1, 2023.>
§ 145. Findings of facts, conclusions of law, 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 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 of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations of the Board
shall be the basis for the Department's order refusing to issue, restore, or renew
a license, or otherwise disciplining a licensee. If the Secretary disagrees in any regard with the report 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.
