Broker's licenses; bond or other security required of brokers; powers of commission as to brokers' accounts, reports and records.

(a) No person shall, for compensation, sell or offer for sale transportation subject to this chapter or shall make any contract, agreement or arrangement to provide, procure, furnish or arrange for such transportation or shall hold himself or itself out by advertisement, solicitation or otherwise as one who sells, provides, procures, contracts or arranges for such transportation, unless such person holds a brokers license issued by the commission to engage in such transaction; provided, that no such person shall engage in transportation subject to this chapter unless he or it holds a certificate or permit as provided in this chapter. In the execution of any contract, agreement or arrangement to sell, provide, procure, furnish or arrange for such transportation, it shall be unlawful for such person to employ any air carrier who, or which, is not the lawful holder of a certificate or permit issued as provided in this chapter; provided, that the provisions of this subsection shall not apply to any carrier holding a certificate or permit under the provisions of this chapter or to any bona fide employee or agent of such carrier, so far as concerns transportation to be furnished wholly by such carrier or jointly with other carriers holding like certificates or permits or with a common carrier by railroad, motor vehicle, express or water.

(b) The provisions of subsections (a) and (b) of Section 37-9-17 shall apply with like force and effect to brokerage licenses and, for such purpose the term "certificate" as used in such subsections shall include "license." A brokerage license shall be issued to any qualified applicant to have authority to engage in the whole or any part of the operations covered by the application if it is found that the applicant is fit, willing and able properly to perform the services proposed and to conform to the provisions of this chapter and the requirements, rules and regulations of the commission thereunder, and that the proposed service, to the extent to be authorized by the license is, or will be, consistent with the public interest and the declaration of policy contained in Section 37-9-5; otherwise such application shall be denied.

(c) The provisions of Sections 37-9-21 and 37-9-23 shall apply with like force and effect to brokerage licenses, and for such purpose the term "certificate" as used in such sections shall include "license."

(d) The commission shall prescribe reasonable rules and regulations for the protection of travelers or shippers by air carrier, to be observed by any person holding a brokerage license, and no such license shall be issued or remain in force unless such person shall have furnished a bond or other security approved by the commission in such form and amount as will insure financial responsibility and the supplying of authorized transportation in accordance with contracts, agreements or arrangement therefor.

(e) The commission and its employees shall have the same authority as to accounts, reports and records, including inspection and the preservation thereof, of any person holding a brokerage license issued under the provisions of this section that they have under this chapter with respect to air carriers.
