§ 5-20-31. Recommendations of board — Order of director — Rehearing — Review.
Any person aggrieved by any decision or ruling of the division of professional regulation may appeal that decision to the administrator of the division or his or her designee. A further appeal may then be made to the state board of plumbing examiners. The state board of plumbing examiners, upon completion of any hearing held on a verified complaint, shall present to the director of labor and training a written report of its findings and recommendations. The director of the department shall then order that the license of the licensee charged in the complaint is revoked or that the complaint is dismissed in accordance with the recommendations of the board. A copy of that order shall be immediately served upon the licensee either personally or by registered or certified mail. The order of the department is final unless the charged licensee, the division, or complainant, within twenty (20) days after receipt of that order, files with the director his or her motion, in writing, for a review of the order by the director, specifying in the motion the points and reasons for the order. The filing of a motion for a review stays the operation of the order pending final decision on that motion. A motion for a review by the director shall be immediately scheduled for a hearing by the director. The decision of the director of the department after his or her review is final upon questions of fact.
