Therefore, applicant contends that defendant’s “petition for a change of venue is null and void.”            Based upon our review of the record, and for the reasons set forth herein, we will dismiss applicant’s Petition for Reconsideration, because there is no final order subject to reconsideration, and deny applicant’s petition as a Petition for Removal.            At the outset, we note that reconsideration may be had only of a final order, decision, or award.
