17:9A-58. Exempt transactions
Nothing in this article applies to
(1) any loan or extension of credit which a bank may make pursuant to any other law of this State or any regulation promulgated pursuant to such law, nor does this article apply to any loan or other extension of credit otherwise authorized or not prohibited by law, or otherwise enforceable at law;
(2) any loan which bears interest at a rate not in excess of a rate authorized pursuant to R.S. 31:1-1 computed upon its unpaid balances; or
(3) any instrument or obligation, lawful upon its face, which is purchased or discounted by a bank pursuant to paragraph (1) of section 25, and which represents, evidences, or secures an existing indebtedness having its inception in a transaction to which the bank is not a party; regardless whether such instrument or obligation is acquired by the bank with or without rights of recourse against the person from whom the bank obtains such instrument through such purchase or discount. A bank shall not be deemed to be a party to a transaction within the meaning of this paragraph, because prior to the inception of rights in any instrument, obligation or indebtedness purchased or discounted by it, the bank approves the credit of any person liable for the payment of such instrument, obligation or indebtedness at the request of the person who supplies the consideration which supports the liability of any person to pay such instrument, obligation or indebtedness.
