17:45-14. Examination of companies; expenses; expenses when association insolvent; gifts to authorities prohibited
The commissioner may, whenever he deems it expedient, make or cause to be made an examination of the assets and liabilities, method of conducting business and all other affairs of every such association authorized or which has made application for authority to transact business under the provisions of this chapter. For the purpose of such examination the commissioner may authorize and employ such persons to conduct the same or to assist therein as he may deem advisable, which examination may be conducted in any State in which the association examined has an office, agent or place of business. The reasonable expense of such examination shall be fixed and determined by the commissioner, and he shall collect the same from the association examined, which shall pay same on presentation of a detailed account of such expense. If any association, after such examination, shall be adjudged by the Superior Court to be insolvent, the expense of such examination, if unpaid, shall be ordered paid out of the assets of the association. No association shall, either directly or indirectly, pay, by way of gift, credit or otherwise, any other or further sum to the commissioner or to any person in the employ of the department, for extra service or for purposes of legislation, or for any other purpose whatsoever.
