(b) The issues considered for review shall include, but not be limited to, the statutory eligibility requirements and rules upon which the denial of the application was based.

Any additional evidence shall be in documentary form. If any additional evidence is to be presented by oral testimony, a written synopsis of that oral evidence shall accompany the request for a public hearing.
