The commissioner may by order deny a license application, suspend or revoke any license, or may censure a licensee on finding that the order is in the public interest, and that the applicant or licensee:
(1) has filed an application for a license which is incomplete in any material respect or contains any statement which, in light of the circumstances under which it is made, is false or misleading with respect to any material fact;
(2) has engaged in a fraudulent or deceptive practice;
(3) is permanently or temporarily enjoined by any court of competent jurisdiction from engaging in or continuing any conduct or practice involving any aspect of the membership camping contract business or any other statute designed to protect consumers; or
(4) has materially or intentionally violated or failed to comply with any provision of this chapter or any rule or order under this chapter.
The commissioner shall issue an order requiring a licensee or applicant for a license to show cause why the license should not be revoked or suspended, or the licensee censured, or the application denied. The order shall be calculated to give reasonable notice of the time and place for hearing thereon, and shall state the reasons for the entry of the order. If the commissioner finds that there are reasonable grounds to believe that, unless an order is issued promptly, there is an immediate and significant risk of harm to purchasers, the commissioner may by order summarily suspend a license pending final determination of any order to show cause. If a license is suspended pending final determination of an order to show cause, a hearing on the merits shall be held within 30 days of the issuance of the order of suspension. All hearings shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of chapter 14. After the hearing, the commissioner shall enter an order making such disposition of the matter as the facts require. If the licensee or applicant fails to appear at a hearing of which that person has been duly notified, the person shall be deemed in default, and the proceeding may be determined against that person upon consideration of the order to show cause, the allegations of which may be deemed to be true.
