178. If it shall appear to the commissioner that a State association or an out-of-State association has violated any law of this State or of its home state, or any of its bylaws, or is conducting its business in an unsafe or unauthorized manner, he may order it in writing to discontinue its illegal or unsafe practices. Such order shall be sent to the State association's president, who shall present it to the board at its next regular meeting, or at a special meeting, if he deems it advisable, or if the commissioner so directs. The board's action thereon shall be promptly communicated by the president to the commissioner.
A State association or out-of-State association which fails or refuses to comply with an order of the commissioner issued pursuant to this section within the time limited in such order, shall be liable to a penalty of $500.00 to be recovered with costs by the State in any court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action prosecuted by the Attorney General.
