Office of the Revisor of Statutes

In any contested case all parties shall be afforded an opportunity for hearing after reasonable
notice. The notice shall state the time, place and issues involved, but if, by reason of the nature of
the case, the issues cannot be fully stated in advance of the hearing, or if subsequent amendment
of the issues is necessary, they shall be fully stated as soon as practicable, and opportunity shall be
afforded all parties to present evidence and argument with respect thereto. Prior to assignment of
a case to an administrative law judge as provided by sections 14.48 to 14.56, all papers shall be
filed with the agency. Subsequent to assignment of the case, the agency shall certify the official
record to the Office of Administrative Hearings, and thereafter, all papers shall be filed with
that office. The Office of Administrative Hearings shall maintain the official record which shall
include subsequent filings, testimony and exhibits. All filings are deemed effective upon receipt.
The record shall contain a written transcript of the hearing only if preparation of a transcript is
requested by the agency, a party, or the chief administrative law judge. The agency or party
requesting a transcript shall bear the cost of preparation. When the chief administrative law judge
requests preparation of the transcript, the agency shall bear the cost of preparation. Upon issuance
of the administrative law judge's report, the official record shall be certified to the agency.
