After a timely appeal has been filed with the program, the administrative fine, if any, shall be stayed until the appeal has been adjudicated.

Persons appealing a citation, or their appointed representatives, may appear in person before the disciplinary review committee. The appellant may present written or oral evidence relating to the facts and circumstances relating to the citation that was issued. Following an appeal to a disciplinary review committee, the disciplinary review committee shall issue a decision, based on findings of fact, which may affirm, reduce, dismiss, or alter any charges filed in the citation. In no event shall the administrative fine be increased. The appellant shall be provided with a written copy of the disciplinary review committee’s decision relating to the appeal.
