Editor's Note: The Office of the Secretary of State publishes all Code Chapters on white paper (Supp. 01-4).

Editor's Note: Some Sections of this Chapter were amended, adopted, and repealed under an exemption from the Arizona Administrative Procedure Act (A.R.S. Title 41, Chapter 6) pursuant to Laws 1996, Chapter 307, § 18. Although exempt from certain provisions of the rulemaking process, the Department was required to provide for reasonable notice and conduct a hearing. The changes were not reviewed by the Governor's Regulatory Review Council; and the Department did not submit notice of proposed rulemaking to the Secretary of State for publication in the Arizona Administrative Register (Supp. 97-2).

Editor's Note: Some Sections of this Chapter were amended, adopted, and repealed under an exemption from the Arizona Administrative Procedure Act (A.R.S. Title 41, Chapter 6) pursuant to Laws 1989, Chapter 234, § 22. Although exempt from certain portions of the rulemaking process, the Department was required to provide a notice of hearing and a public hearing before adopting these changes. At the time the Sections were amended, adopted, and repealed the Office of the Secretary of State was not allowed by law to file and publish exempt rules. The Department has now filed these changes with the Office of the Secretary of State as required pursuant to Laws 1991, Chapter 136 §§ 2 and 3 (Supp. 96-4).

Portions of this Chapter have been adopted under an exemption from the Arizona Administrative Procedure Act (A.R.S. Title 41, Chapter 6), pursuant to Laws 1993, Ch. 133, § 49 and Laws 1994, Ch. 373, § 9. Exemption from A.R.S. Title 41, Chapter 6 means that the Department did not submit notice of this rulemaking to the Secretary of State's Office for publication in the Arizona Administrative Register; the Department did not submit these rules to the Governor's Regulatory Review Council; the Department was not required to hold public hearings on these rules; and the Attorney General did not certify these rules.

B. If the Board makes the initial agency decision, except as provided in subsection (H), any party in a contested case before the Board who is aggrieved by that decision may file with the Board, not later than 15 days after service of the decision, a written motion for rehearing or review of the decision specifying the particular grounds therefor. For purposes of this subsection, a decision shall be deemed to have been served when personally delivered or mailed by certified mail to the party at his last known residence or place of business.

C. A motion for rehearing under this rule may be amended at any time before it is ruled upon by the Board. A response may be filed within 10 days after service of such a motion or amended motion by any other party. The Board may require the filing of written briefs upon the issues raised in the motion and may provide for oral argument.

D. A rehearing review of the decision may be granted for any of the following causes materially affecting the moving party's rights:

1. Irregularity in the administrative proceedings of the agency or its hearing officer or the prevailing party, or any order or abuse of discretion, whereby the moving party was deprived or a fair hearing;

F. Not later than 15 days after a decision is rendered, the Board may on its own initiative order a rehearing or review of its decision for any reason for which it might have granted a rehearing on motion of a party. After giving the parties or their counsel notice and an opportunity to be heard on the matter, the Board may grant a motion for rehearing for a reason not stated in the motion. In either case the order granting such a rehearing shall specify the grounds therefor.

G. When a motion for rehearing is based upon affidavits, they shall be served with the motion. An opposing party may within ten days after such service serve opposing affidavits, which period may be extended for an additional period not exceeding 20 days by the Board for good cause shown or by written stipulation of the parties. Reply affidavits may be permitted.

H. If in a particular decision the Board makes specific findings that the immediate effectiveness of such decision is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety and that a rehearing or review of the decision is impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the decision may be issued as a final decision without an opportunity for a rehearing or review. If a decision is issued as a final decision without an opportunity for rehearing, any application for judicial review of the decision shall be made within the time limits permitted for application for judicial review of the Board's final decision.

I. For purposes of this Section the terms "contested case" and "party" shall have the meaning defined in A.R.S. § 41-1001.
