Promulgation of rules--Enforcement of chapter.
The commission may promulgate
rules, pursuant to chapter 1-26, for the orderly transaction and conduct of its business and the
substantive rules that it may determine proper concerning the issuance, revocation, and suspension
of gaming licensees, the division of limited card games, slot machines, craps, roulette, or keno that
may be placed in any building or retail business, conduct, and operation of limited card games, slot
machines, craps, roulette, or keno, variations of limited card games, craps or roulette, and any other
things necessary to carry out the purposes of this chapter. The commission may also promulgate rules
necessary to administer complaints which may be received from the public and conduct such other
investigations and inspections into the conduct of the games and the licensees and the maintenance
of the equipment as the commission deems necessary and proper. License issuance, suspension, and
revocation are contested cases within the meaning of chapter 1-26. The commission's rules may
provide procedures for summary suspension of any license issued under this chapter and shall
provide for subsequent contested case hearings before suspensions become final or a license is
revoked. The commission may apply for injunctive or declaratory relief to enforce the provisions of
this chapter and any rules promulgated thereunder. Action by the commission may not limit the
authority of the state's attorney or attorney general from enforcing criminal actions.
