77-537. Summary proceedings; use, when; right to request hearing; orders, contents. (a) A state agency may use summary proceedings, subject to a party's request for a hearing on the order, if:

(1) The use of those proceedings in the circumstances does not violate any provision of law;

(2) the protection of the public interest does not require the state agency to give notice and an opportunity to participate to persons other than the parties;

(3) based upon an investigation of the facts by the state agency, beyond receipt of the allegations, the state agency believes in good faith that the allegations will be supported to the applicable standard of proof, provided however that an alleged failure to meet the standards set forth in this subsection shall not be subject to immediate judicial review and shall not invalidate any later agency action that has been supported to the applicable standard of proof; and

(4) the order does not take effect until after the time for requesting a hearing has expired.

(b) The state agency shall serve each party with a copy of the order in a summary proceeding in the manner prescribed by K.S.A. 77-531, and amendments thereto. The order shall include at least:

(1) A statement of the state agency's action and, if unfavorable action is taken, a brief statement of the reasons for the action;

(2) notice of the time and manner for requesting a hearing on the order, as provided in K.S.A. 77-542; and

(3) notice that, if a hearing is not requested, the order shall become effective upon the expiration of the time for requesting a hearing.

(c) If a hearing is requested, the prior issuance of a summary order shall not affect the burden of proof.
