2007 ORS 183.430¹
Hearing on refusal to renew license
  • exceptions

(1) In the case of any license which must be periodically renewed, where the licensee has made timely application for renewal in accordance with the rules of the agency, such license shall not be deemed to expire, despite any stated expiration date thereon, until the agency concerned has issued a formal order of grant or denial of such renewal. In case an agency proposes to refuse to renew such license, upon demand of the licensee, the agency must grant hearing as provided by this chapter before issuance of order of refusal to renew. This subsection does not apply to any emergency or temporary permit or license.

(2) In any case where the agency finds a serious danger to the public health or safety and sets forth specific reasons for such findings, the agency may suspend or refuse to renew a license without hearing, but if the licensee demands a hearing within 90 days after the date of notice to the licensee of such suspension or refusal to renew, then a hearing must be granted to the licensee as soon as practicable after such demand, and the agency shall issue an order pursuant to such hearing as required by this chapter confirming, altering or revoking its earlier order. Such a hearing need not be held where the order of suspension or refusal to renew is accompanied by or is pursuant to, a citation for violation which is subject to judicial determination in any court of this state, and the order by its terms will terminate in case of final judgment in favor of the licensee. [1957 c.717 §8 (3), (4); 1965 c.212 §1; 1971 c.734 §11]

Notes of Decisions

Under this sec­tion, Division's at­tempted revoca­tion of day care certificate on ground of unsanitary condi­tions was ineffective, for only suspension was permissible absent hearing. Reynolds v. Children's Services Division, 280 Or 431, 571 P2d 505 (1977)

Where dentist filed suit to enjoin license suspension pending hearing before Dental Examiners Board, court had jurisdic­tion to afford such interlocutory relief, but lacked jurisdic­tion to grant permanent injunc­tion precluding Board from con­ducting hearing, as plaintiff had not exhausted administrative remedies. Van Gordon v. Oregon State Board of Dental Examiners, 34 Or App 607, 579 P2d 306 (1978), Sup Ct review denied

Reasons for prehearing suspension of liquor license under this sec­tion must be at least as substantial as those which would justify suspension under general suspension statute, ORS 471.315 (Grounds for cancellation or suspension of license or imposition of civil penalty). Marcoules v. OLCC, 91 Or App 573, 756 P2d 661 (1988)

Hearing is available re­gard­ing immediate suspension of license, notwithstanding sub­se­quent expira­tion of license. Red Willow Adolescent Chemical Dependency Treat­ment, Inc. v. Children's Services Division, 152 Or App 710, 954 P2d 1274 (1998)

Notes of Decisions

A legislative delega­tion of power in terms as broad as those used in ORS 471.295 (1) (renumbered ORS 471.313 (Grounds for refusing to issue license) (1)) places upon the administrative agency a responsibility to es­tab­lish standards by which the law is to be applied. Sun Ray Drive-in Dairy, Inc. v. Ore. Liquor Control Comm., 16 Or App 63, 517 P2d 289 (1973)

Administrative regula­tion providing that failure to perform responsibilities adequately was a ground for employee's dismissal. Palen v. State Bd. of Higher Educ., 18 Or App 442, 525 P2d 1047 (1974), Sup Ct review denied

Where it was determined that agency invalidly terminated substantive policy, trial court did not have authority to order agency to resume policy in absence of validly adopted agency rule. Burke v. Children's Services Division, 39 Or App 819, 593 P2d 1262 (1979), aff'd 288 Or 533, 607 P2d 141 (1980)

"Trending factors" published by the Depart­ment of Revenue and used to appraise prop­erty for purposes of prop­erty taxa­tion are not "rules" within the meaning of this chapter. Borden Inc. v. Dept. of Rev., 286 Or 567, 595 P2d 1372 (1979)

Appellate court may review pro­ceed­ing meeting defini­tion of contested case whether or not pro­ceed­ing was formal administrative hearing. Patton v. State Bd. of Higher Ed., 293 Or 363, 647 P2d 931 (1982)

Circuit court could not entertain ac­tion for declaratory judg­ment di­rected at PERS, because PERS is subject to APA, which provides exclusive method for review of its ac­tions. FOPPO v. County of Marion, 93 Or App 93, 760 P2d 1353 (1988), Sup Ct review denied

Board of Educa­tion approval of textbook for use in state public schools was not "rule," but was "order in other than contested case," and jurisdic­tion for judicial review is in circuit court. Oregon Env. Council v. Oregon State Bd. of Ed., 307 Or 30, 761 P2d 1322 (1988)

Preponderance of evidence standard applies where initial license applica­tion is denied based on willful fraud. Sobel v. Board of Pharmacy, 130 Or App 374, 882 P2d 606 (1994), Sup Ct review denied
