In this event, the board shall revoke his or her license. [Amended by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1275, Sec. 14. Effective January 1, 1995]

(c) The hearing may be continued from time to time as the board deems appropriate.
(d) The board itself shall hear the petition and the administrative law judge shall prepare a written decision setting forth the reasons supporting the decision.
