(b) ORS 744.626, for the license category of insurance consultant.

(b) The director may issue a nonresident license to a person if the person is not a resident of this state.
(4) The director shall issue a license under this section:
(a) If the applicant has completed and submitted to the director an application for the license and has submitted all applicable fees, including any examination fees, as established by the director with the application;
(b) If the director determines that no ground for denial of the license exists under ORS 744.013; and
