51:7-6. Revoking license to sell solid fuel; voiding certificate of origin
The superintendent of the department shall revoke the license of any person licensed to sell solid fuel in this State who buys, sells or transports stolen anthracite within this State or who buys, sells or transports anthracite which has been acquired at a place of production, storage or source where stolen anthracite is handled or distributed, and shall issue to such person no further license to sell solid fuel in this State for a period of at least one year from the date of revocation. The superintendent shall give at least five days' notice of the proposed revocation proceedings, which notice shall contain the charges made against the licensee and the time and place of the hearing of said revocation proceedings; said notice shall be sent by registered mail to the address given by the licensee in his application for license to sell solid fuel; said licensee shall have the opportunity to appear and enter a defense at the hearing to be held at the office of the superintendent.

The superintendent shall void all certificates of origin where the person who obtains the same buys, sells or transports stolen anthracite or deals in or handles stolen anthracite. The superintendent may refuse to grant and may void certificates of origin where the person who applies for or obtains the same violates any of the provisions of this chapter or for any of the following reasons: Fraud or misrepresentation practices in procuring any such certificates; dishonesty in conducting his business; conduct of a character likely to defraud or deceive the public; transferring said certificates to a person other than the person to whom they were issued or for any conduct or practice at variance with the purpose of this chapter. Any person using voided certificates knowingly shall be deemed guilty of a violation of this chapter. Five days' notice by registered mail of the proposed refusal to grant or voiding of said certificates shall be given to the person who applied for or obtained the same and upon request of said person he shall be given an opportunity to show cause why the granting of said certificates should not be refused or said certificates voided.
