A. If the local office of the department does not act with reasonable promptness on an application, or if the application is denied wholly or in part by the local office of the department, the applicant or recipient may appeal to the state department in the manner and form prescribed by the state department. The state department shall, upon receipt of the appeal, give the applicant or recipient an opportunity for a hearing.

The state department shall, upon receipt of the appeal, give the applicant or recipient an opportunity for a hearing.
