(a) Pursuant to 31.0503(d) ASCA, the board has power to hold hearings, to compel the attendance and testimony of witnesses, to order the production of documents and other tangible evidence, to administer oaths, and to cite for contempt.
(b) Subsequent to a hearing upon an appeal by a licensee or applicant from an adverse decision by the administrator, the board, pursuant to 31.0503(c) ASCA, has the power to issue or renew or to refuse to issue or renew, to limit or modify, or to suspend or revoke any license provided for in the Contractors Licensing Law. (Note: The board interprets its power in this respect to hold a hearing de novo of any matter decided by the administrator.) The board may then affirm the decision of the administrator of may decide otherwise as provided by law and this article. The board's policy is to afford great weight to the administrator's decision due to his day-to-day association and contact with the licensees and his administration of the law and rules, giving weight to his experience, competence, and expertise.)History: Contractors Lic.
