A copy of the complaint, together with any exhibits, shall be served upon the defendant licensee at the licensee's last know address. The licensee shall file an answer with the Attorney General's office within twenty (20) days of receipt of the complaint. Upon receipt of an answer to a complaint, an administrative hearing shall be conducted in accordance with KRS Chapter 13B.

Nothing in KRS 367.97501 to 367.97537 shall be construed to limit or restrict the exercise of powers or the performance of the duties of the Attorney General, which he is authorized to exercise or perform under any other provision of law including direct court action to obtain injunctive relief and revocation of license.

Effective:July 15, 1996 History: Amended 1996 Ky. Acts ch. 318, sec. 352, effective July 15, 1996. -Created 1994 Ky. Acts ch. 140, sec. 11, effective July 15, 1994. Legislative Research Commission Note (7/15/94, revised 7/15/96). The reference to "KRS 376.190 to 367.300" in subsection (4) of this statute is clearly erroneous. It would appear that "KRS 367.110 to 367.300," an established range of statutes, may have been intended. Subsection (4) was formerly subsection (7) of this statute. See 1996 Ky. Acts ch. 318, sec. 352.
