(b)  The annual financial report required by § 46-1-214 to be filed with the commissioner shall indicate the amount of fidelity bond coverage, the classes of employees included, name of carrier and policy number, and the expiration date of coverage.

(c)  Cemeteries with combined funds, defined as cash, investments and assets, of less than forty thousand dollars ($40,000) may apply to the commissioner for an exemption from meeting the requirements of subsections (a) and (b).

(d)  If any cemetery that is currently exempt should, at any time in the future, obtain combined funds in excess of forty thousand dollars ($40,000), the cemetery shall, within sixty (60) days of notification of the commissioner, obtain the fidelity bond required by subsections (a) and (b).
