1104.04000 – Substitution of ALJ
Hearing officers may be substituted in administrative proceedings and the hearing officer who hears the evidence need not be the same hearing officer who renders the proposed decision. This is because the Board itself renders the final decision on appeal on the basis of the record and without having been present at the hearing.
