40-4118. Federal preemption of commissioner's powers; injunctive authority restricted. The commissioner is authorized to make use of any of the powers established under the insurance code of this state to enforce the laws of this state so long as those powers are not specifically preempted by the product liability risk retention act of 1981, as amended by the risk retention amendments of 1986. Such authorization includes, but is not limited to, the commissioner's administrative authority to investigate, issue subpoenas, conduct depositions and hearings, issue orders and impose penalties. With regard to any investigation, administrative proceeding, or litigation, the commissioner can rely on the procedural law and regulations of the state. The injunctive authority of the commissioner in regard to risk retention groups is restricted by the requirement that any injunction be issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.
