§ 37.292. Suspension and revocation of certificate.

 Failure to comply with this chapter or the terms and conditions of the certificates of public convenience or permit issued will be sufficient cause for the Commission to suspend, revoke or rescind the rights and privileges conferred by the certificate of public convenience or permit. A revocation or penalty will not be finally ordered until the common carrier, contract carrier or forwarder has first been given opportunity to be heard as to why the certificate or permit should not be revoked or penalty imposed.
