I. Upon receipt of an administratively final order from the licensing authority of another jurisdiction which imposes disciplinary sanctions against a licensee, permittee, registrant, or certificate holder of the board, or a person applying for a license, permit, registration, or certificate, the board may issue an order directing the licensee, permittee, registrant, or applicant to appear and show cause why similar disciplinary sanctions or, in the case of an applicant, why the license, permit, or registration denial or restriction, should not be imposed in this state. In any such proceeding, the decision of the foreign licensing authority may not be collaterally attacked, but the licensee, permittee, registrant, or applicant shall be given the opportunity to demonstrate why a lesser sanction should be imposed.
II. The board may issue any disciplinary sanction or take any action with regard to any pending application pursuant to this section otherwise permitted by this chapter, including sanctions or actions which are more stringent than those imposed by the foreign jurisdiction.
III. The board may adopt summary procedures for handling proceedings brought under this chapter, but shall furnish the respondent at least 10 days' written notice and a reasonable opportunity to be heard. The board may require a licensee, permittee, registrant, or certificate holder to suspend practice in this state as a condition of postponing a hearing date established for allegations brought under this section.
