Any license may be revoked or suspended by the commissioner upon receiving evidence of incompetence, negligence, intoxication while on duty or other reason establishing that the licensee is unfit to hold a license, after notice is given to the licensee and a hearing afforded him before one or more members of the examining board. In case revocation or suspension is recommended by the member or members conducting the hearing, it shall not be acted upon by the commissioner until at least 15 days' notice of the recommendation shall be given to the licensee and an opportunity afforded him within that time period to ask for a rehearing before the commissioner. After rehearing, if requested, the commissioner may affirm, modify or dismiss such recommendation. Pending a hearing or rehearing as provided in this paragraph, the commissioner may authorize the suspension of a license in the interest of health and safety.
