17B:18-31. Emergency by-laws

The board of directors of any domestic insurer may at any time adopt emergency by-laws, subject to repeal or change by action of those having power to adopt regular by-laws for the insurer, which shall be operative during a national emergency caused by an attack on the United States or by a nuclear, atomic or other disaster which makes it impossible or impracticable for an insurer to conduct its business in strict accord with applicable provisions of law, its by-laws, or its certificate of incorporation or charter. Such emergency by-laws may, notwithstanding any different provisions of the regular by-laws, or of the applicable statutes, or of the insurer's certificate of incorporation or charter, make any provision that may be reasonably necessary for the operation of the insurer during the period of such emergency.
