Section: Offenses, liabilities, penalties and forfeitures committed or incurred under repealed acts not affected by such repeal
The commissioner shall, within 30 days after the filing of the affidavit specified in section 14, issue the said certificate of authority, or notify the bank or savings bank in writing of his reasons for refusing it. The issuance of the certificate of authority shall not be withheld by the commissioner, except when (1) the affidavit specified in section 14 is not in proper form, in which event an opportunity shall be afforded the bank or savings bank to file a proper affidavit, or (2) the commissioner determines that the facts set forth in the affidavit are not true. In addition, the commissioner shall, except as hereinafter provided, withhold the issuance of the certificate of authority until evidence is presented to him that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or any successor corporation having for its purpose the insurance of deposits, has agreed to accept the bank or savings bank as a member, effective upon the opening for business of the bank or savings bank; but the certificate of authority shall not be withheld because of failure of the bank or savings bank to be accepted for such membership, if the commissioner shall find that the capital stock and surplus of the bank, or the capital deposits of the savings bank, are reasonably adequate to safeguard the interests of depositors notwithstanding the absence of deposit insurance. The commissioner's failure to issue the certificate of authority, and to notify the bank or savings bank in writing of the reason therefor within the specified 30 day period, shall be subject to review, hearing and relief in the Superior Court, in a proceeding in lieu of prerogative writ.
