administrator may ask the Department of Corrections to reconsider the parts of the order or
action that are alleged to be in error. The request for reconsideration must:

new text begin (1) be made in writing;
new text end

new text begin (2) be postmarked and sent to the commissioner no later than 30 calendar days after

new text begin (b) The facility administrator may request reconsideration of an order immediately
suspending a license. The request for reconsideration of an order immediately suspending
a license must be made in writing and sent by certified mail, personal service, or other means

is made by personal service, it must be received by the commissioner no later than five
business days after the facility administrator received the order. The request for
reconsideration must:

decision, the facility administrator may appeal the decision by filing a writ of certiorari with
the court of appeals under section 606.01 and Minnesota Rules of Civil Appellate Procedure,
Rule 115. Failure by the facility administrator to appeal to the court of appeals no later than
the 60-day period precludes the person from later raising, in any subsequent administrative
hearing or court proceeding, those substantive and procedural issues that reasonably should
have been raised upon a timely appeal.
