Title 8 - COMMERCIAL LAW AND CONSUMER PROTECTION.
Chapter 7 - SALE OF CHECKS.
Section 8-7-7 - License - Certified financial statement; surety bond or deposit of securities; list of offices, etc.
Each application for a license shall be accompanied by:
(1) Certified financial statements reasonably satisfactory to the commission showing that the applicant's net worth exceeds $5,000;
(2) A corporate surety bond in the principal sum of $10,000 for the principal office plus an additional principal sum of $5,000 for each additional location, office, or agency of such applicant in this state at which the business is to be conducted, but in no event shall the bond be required to be in a principal sum in excess of $50,000. If the bond accompanying the application is in a principal sum less than $50,000, the application shall also be accompanied by a list of the locations, offices, and agencies at which the business is to be conducted. The bond shall be in a form satisfactory to the commission and shall be issued by a bonding company or insurance company authorized to do business in this state to secure the faithful performance of the obligations of the applicant and the agents and subagents of the applicant with respect to the receipt, transmission, and payment of money in connection with the sale or issuance or dispensing of checks or the payment of obligors' bills, invoices, or accounts; or
(3) In lieu of such corporate surety bond, the applicant may deposit with the State Treasurer bonds or other obligations of this state or of any municipal corporation, county, or other political subdivision or agency of this state in principal amount at least equal to that of the corporate surety bond otherwise required. Such bonds or obligations shall be deposited with the state treasurer to secure the same obligations as would a corporate surety bond, but the depositor shall be entitled to receive all interest and dividends thereon and shall have the right to substitute other bonds or obligations for those deposited with the approval of the commission and shall be required so to do on order of the commission made for good cause shown.(Acts 1961, Ex. Sess., No. 177, p. 2142, §7.)
