b.Except as otherwise expressly provided in this subsection b., an interstate merger transaction shall not be permitted if, upon consummation of the transaction, the resulting state or federally chartered bank or savings bank, including all federally insured depository institutions that would be affiliates as defined in subsection (k) of section (2) of the federal "Bank Holding Company Act of 1956," 12 U.S.C. 1841(k), would control 30 percent or more of the total amount of deposits held by insured depository institutions in this State.

c.The commissioner shall not permit before June 1, 1997, an interstate merger transaction involving one or more banks or savings banks and an out-of-State bank or banks unless the home state of each bank involved in the transaction has in effect, as of the date of the approval of such transaction, a law that applies equally to all out-of-state banks and expressly permits interstate merger transactions with all out-of-state banks.
d.The commissioner shall not permit on or after June 1, 1997, an interstate merger transaction involving one or more banks or savings banks and an out-of-State bank or banks if the home state of any bank or savings bank involved in the merger transaction has enacted a law after September 29, 1994, and before June 1, 1997, that applies equally to all out-of-State banks and expressly prohibits merger transactions involving out-of-State banks.
e.An out-of-State bank may, with the approval of the commissioner, acquire a branch office of a bank, out-of-State bank, national bank or savings bank, and the branch shall be treated, for purposes of this section, as a bank or savings bank, as appropriate.
f.A bank or savings bank may, with the approval of the commissioner, acquire an out-of-State branch office of a bank, savings bank or an out-of-State bank, and the branch shall be treated, for purposes of this section, as an out-of-State bank.
g.Any out-of-State bank which shall be the resulting bank in an interstate merger transaction shall file with the commissioner in a manner consistent with regulations promulgated by the commissioner for this purpose.
