b. It has satisfied the commissioner that it is fully and legally organized under the laws of its state or government to do the business it proposes to transact. That it has the requisite amount of capital, fully paid up and unimpaired; and
c. It shall, by a duly executed instrument filed in his office, constitute and appoint the commissioner or his successor its true lawful attorney, upon whom all lawful processes in any action, rule, order or legal proceeding against it may be served; and therein shall agree that any lawful process against it which may be served upon him as its said attorney shall be of the same force and validity as if served on the company, and that the authority thereof shall continue in force irrevocably so long as any liability of the company remains outstanding in this State.
