17:12B-27.2. Time limit for opening branch office; discontinuance of branch office
The failure of a State association to open and operate a branch office within 12 months after the commissioner approves the application therefor, shall automatically terminate the right of the State association to open a branch office, except that, for good cause shown, the commissioner may, in his discretion, on application of the State association extend for additional periods, not in excess of 12 months each, the time within which such branch office may be opened, provided the initial application shall be made before the expiration of 12 months from the date that the commissioner approves the application and any subsequent application for extension shall be made before the expiration of any subsequent period for which permission to extend is granted by the commissioner. A State association may discontinue a branch office upon resolution of its board. Upon adoption of such a resolution, the State association shall file a certificate with the commissioner specifying the location of the branch office to be discontinued, and the date upon which the discontinuance shall be effective.
