If the Commission accepts jurisdiction, then the MSSA official in question shall be notified by the Commission of all allegations made against them as well as their right to present evidence and witnesses. The official in question shall also have the right to question witnesses presented in support of the allegations. The Commission may dismiss the complaint or declare the official in violation, in which the case the Commission must decide an appropriate sanction. The Commission's ruling shall be communicated to the Senate within five business days.
