17:52-23. Supervision by Commissioner of Banking and Insurance
A. The Commissioner of Banking and Insurance shall, whenever and as often as he deems it necessary, cause the affairs of every business development corporation to be examined to determine whether it is conducting its business in conformity with the laws of this State and its certificate of incorporation. In carrying out the provisions of this subsection, the commissioner shall have the same powers conferred upon him in the examination of the affairs of a banking institution organized under the laws of this State.
B. If the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance finds that a business development corporation is violating the provisions of its certificate of incorporation, or is conducting its business in violation of any law of this State, or in an unsafe manner, he shall order the business development corporation to cease its ultra vires, unlawful or unsafe practices, as the case may be. For a violation of any order of the commissioner, the business development corporation shall be subject to a penalty of $500.00, to be recovered with costs by the State in a civil action prosecuted by the Attorney-General.
C. The Commissioner shall have power to revoke the authority to transact business of a business development corporation which has willfully violated any lawful order made by him, upon not less than 20 days' notice to the corporation, and after formal hearing upon the causes assigned for such revocation, which shall be stated in the notice of hearing.
D. Any order or determination made by the commissioner pursuant to this section shall be subject to review, hearing and relief in the Superior Court in a proceeding in lieu of prerogative writ.
