Who typically drafts the decision at the hearing-level stage?:
If "Yes," please specify these time limit(s):
If a hearing is requested by a state agency, the Board/Hearing Officer must issue a decision within 30 calendar days after the hearing and the final determination will take effect 30 days after delivery of the final decision to the state agency. If a written "hearing" is carried out, a decision is required within 30 after receipt of the state agency's written evidence (See 7 CFR 276.7(i)).
