Oregon Statutes - Chapter 734 - Rehabilitation, Liquidation and Conservation of Insurers - Section 734.825 - Powers and duties of director.

In addition to the duties and powers enumerated elsewhere in ORS 734.750 to 734.820 and 734.830 to 734.890:

(1) The Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services shall:

(a) Upon request of the board of directors, provide the Oregon Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association with a statement of the premiums in the appropriate states for each member insurer.

(b) When an impairment is declared and the amount of the impairment is determined, serve a demand upon the impaired insurer to make good the impairment within a reasonable time. Notice to the impaired insurer shall constitute notice to its shareholders, if any. The failure of the insurer to promptly comply with such demand shall not excuse the association from the performance of its powers and duties under ORS 734.750 to 734.890.

(2) The director may suspend or revoke, after notice and hearing, the certificate of authority to transact insurance in this state of any member insurer which fails to pay an assessment when due or fails to comply with the plan of operation. As an alternative the director may levy a forfeiture on any member insurer which fails to pay an assessment when due. Such forfeiture shall not exceed five percent of the unpaid assessment per month, but no forfeiture shall be less than $100 per month.

(3) Any action of the board of directors or the association may be appealed to the director by any member insurer if such appeal is taken within 30 days of the action being appealed. Any final action or order of the director shall be subject to judicial review in a court of competent jurisdiction.

(4) The liquidator, rehabilitator or conservator of any impaired insurer may notify all interested persons of the effect of ORS 734.750 to 734.890. [1975 c.251 §12]
