tunity, in person or through counsel, to submit a

the commission determines that probable cause
does exist, the complaint and any amendments
thereto shall become a public record and the com-
mission shall fix a time for a hearing in the matter
which shall be not more than thirty (30) days after
a final determination of probable cause is made.
Notice of this determination shall be sent to all
