Section 390.018, Florida Statutes 2004
390.018 Administrative penalty in lieu of revocation or suspension.--If the agency finds that one or more grounds exist for the revocation or suspension of a license issued to an abortion clinic, the agency may, in lieu of such suspension or revocation, impose a fine upon the clinic in an amount not to exceed $1,000 for each violation. The fine shall be paid to the agency within 60 days from the date of entry of the administrative order. If the licensee fails to pay the fine in its entirety to the agency within the period allowed, the license of the licensee shall stand suspended, revoked, or renewal or continuation may be refused, as the case may be, upon expiration of such period and without any further administrative or judicial proceedings.
