Or. Admin. R. 137-003-0675 - Reconsideration and Rehearing - Contested Cases

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) Unless otherwise provided by statute, a party may file a petition for reconsideration or rehearing of a final order in a contested case with the agency within 60 calendar days after the order is served. A copy of the petition shall also be delivered or mailed to all parties or other persons and agencies required by statute, rule or order to receive notice of the proceeding.
(2) The agency may, by rule, require a party to file a petition for reconsideration or rehearing as a condition of judicial review. The agency may, by rule or in writing, require any petition for reconsideration or rehearing to be filed with the administrative law judge.
(3) The petition shall set forth the specific grounds for reconsideration or rehearing. The petition may be supported by a written argument.
(4) The petition may include a request for stay of a final order if the petition complies with the requirements of OAR 137-003-0690(3).
(5) Within 60 calendar days after the order is served, the agency may, on its own initiative, reconsider the final order or rehear the case. If a petition for judicial review has been filed, the agency must follow the procedures set forth in ORS 183.482(6) before taking further action on the order. The procedural and substantive effect of reconsideration or rehearing under this section shall be identical to the effect of granting a party's petition for reconsideration or rehearing.
(6) The agency may consider a petition for reconsideration or rehearing as a request for either or both. The petition may be granted or denied by summary order and, if no action is taken, shall be deemed denied as provided in ORS 183.482.
(a) If the agency determines that reconsideration alone is appropriate, the agency shall enter a new final order in accordance with OAR 137-003-0665, which may be an order affirming the existing order.
(b) If the agency determines that rehearing is appropriate, the agency shall decide upon the scope of the rehearing. The agency shall request the administrative law judge to conduct further hearing on such issues as the agency specifies and to prepare a proposed order as appropriate. The agency shall issue a new final order in accordance with OAR 137-003-0665. The agency may adopt the proposed order prepared by the administrative law judge as the final order, or modify the proposed order and issue the modified order as the final order.
(7) Reconsideration or rehearing shall not be granted after the filing of a petition for judicial review, except in the manner provided by ORS 183.482(6).
(8) Unless otherwise provided by law, a final order remains in effect during reconsideration or rehearing until stayed or changed.
