4:10-39.1. Violations; hearings; assessment of penalty; effect of payment
Upon receiving any information of a violation of any provision of this act or of any rule or regulation adopted thereunder, the secretary or any agent designated by him for such purpose, is empowered to hold hearings upon said violation and, upon finding the violation to have been committed, to assess a penalty against the violator in such amount, not to exceed the maximum limit set forth in section 7 of P.L.1963, c. 116 (C. 4:10-40), as the secretary deems proper under the circumstances. If the violator pays such penalty as settlement, no further prosecution shall be had upon that violation. Payment of such a penalty shall be deemed equivalent to a conviction for violation of this act.
