However, documents that are unavailable to the person seeking reconsideration at the time of filing the petition may be described in as much detail as is possible and may be provided at a later time, should reconsideration be granted, but not later than three (3) working days prior to any reconsideration hearing.

3. The order shall state that, at the hearing to reconsider, the parties shall be allowed to make oral argument on the merits of the petition, the party seeking reconsideration may be allowed to present new evidence only if the party shows to the statisfaction of the agency that good cause existed for the failure to introduce the new evidence in the original hearing, and the opposing party shall be allowed to present rebuttal proof if the party seeking reconsideration is allowed to present new evidence; and
4. Any new evidence allowed to be introduced by the party seeking reconsideration shall be limited to that described in the petition for reconsideration as required in subparagraph (1)(a) of this rule.
