§32A-2-21. Consent orders.
(a) The commissioner may enter into consent orders at any time
with a person to resolve a matter arising under this article. A
consent order shall be signed by the person to whom it is issued
and shall indicate agreement to the terms contained in it. A
consent order need not constitute an admission by a person that
this article or a rule or order issued or promulgated under this
article has been violated, nor need it constitute a finding by the
commissioner that the person has committed a violation.
(b) Notwithstanding the issuance of a consent order, the
commissioner may seek civil or criminal penalties or compromise
civil penalties concerning matters encompassed by the consent order
unless by its terms the consent order expressly precludes the
commissioner from doing so.
