Louisiana Administrative Procedure Act
A. When the grant, denial, or renewal of a license is required to be
preceded by notice and opportunity for hearing, the provisions of this Chapter
concerning adjudication shall apply.
B. When a licensee has made timely and sufficient application for the
renewal of a license or a new license with reference to any activity of a
continuing nature, the existing license shall not expire until the application
has been finally determined by the agency, and, in case the application is
denied or the terms of the new license limited, until the last day for seeking
review of the agency order or a later date fixed by order of the reviewing
C. No revocation, suspension, annulment, or withdrawal of any license is
lawful unless, prior to the institution of agency proceedings, the agency gives
notice by mail to the licensee of facts or conduct which warrant the intended
action, and the licensee is given an opportunity to show compliance with all
lawful requirements for the retention of the license. If the agency finds that
public health, safety, or welfare imperatively requires emergency action, and
incorporates a finding to that effect in its order, summary suspension of a
license may be ordered pending proceedings for revocation or other action. These
proceedings shall be promptly instituted and determined.
