Notwithstanding the provisions of section 14 of P.L. 1963, c. 144 (C. 17:12B-14) or any other law of this State, no state association, including a capital stock association, now or hereafter organized pursuant to P.L. 1963, c. 144 (C. 17:12B-1 et seq.) shall use the words "savings bank S.L.A." in its name, representations or advertisements, without obtaining the commissioner's prior approval as herein provided and subject to other terms and conditions as the commissioner may specify by regulation. The commissioner, upon application of a state association and approval thereof by the commissioner, may authorize a state association to use the words "savings bank S.L.A." in its name, representations or advertisements, if he determines that: a. the use of the words "savings bank S.L.A." by the state association is in the public interest; b. the state association is an insured association; c. the state association is being operated in a safe and sound manner and has adequate capital; d. the state association shall not assume or use a name already in use by a mutual or capital stock savings bank organized pursuant to P.L. 1948, c. 67 (C. 17:9A-1 et seq.), as amended, nor a name so similar thereto as to deceive the public or lead to uncertainty or confusion; provided, however, that the commissioner shall not approve an application filed pursuant to this section if the state association meets one or both of the tests applicable to a supervisory merger or supervisory acquisition as provided in subsections a. and b. of section 2 of P.L. 1982, c. 8 (C. 17:16J-2), except that such application may be approved by the commissioner in the course of an acquisition made pursuant to P.L. 1963, c. 144 (C. 17:12B-1 et seq.) and P.L. 1982, c. 8 (C. 17:16J-1 et seq.).
