Sec. 16.  (1) The commissioner may deny, suspend, summarily suspend, or revoke a license issued under this article if the licensee or an officer, director, agent, member, or employee of the licensee violates this article or a rule promulgated under this article.  The commissioner may summarily suspend a license for a period of not more than 60 days pending prosecution, investigation, or public hearing.

(2) A proceeding to suspend or revoke a license under this article is a contested case governed by the administrative procedures act of 1969, 1969 PA 306, MCL 24.201 to 24.328.

(3) On petition of the commissioner, the circuit court after a hearing may issue subpoenas to compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of documents, papers, books, records, and other evidence before it in a matter over which it has jurisdiction, control, or supervision.  If a person subpoenaed to attend in any such proceeding or hearing fails to obey the command of the subpoena without reasonable cause, or if a person in attendance in any such proceeding or hearing refuses, without lawful cause, to be examined or to answer a legal or pertinent question or to exhibit a book, account, record, or other document when ordered to do so by the court, that person may be punished as being in contempt of the court.

(4) With approval of the commissioner, a bingo hall licensee, in lieu of a suspension of its license, may elect to pay a fine equal to the amount of rent that would have been paid by bingo licensees during the period of the suspension.  The bingo hall licensee shall pay this fine to the bureau on or before the date agreed to in the suspension agreement entered into by the bureau and the bingo hall licensee.
