(1) If the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services determines that an applicant has satisfied all requirements for the license for which application is made, the director shall issue the license to the applicant. The director may issue a license if the director determines that the applicant, as required to be set forth in the application for the license:
(a) Has not engaged in conduct that would authorize the director to refuse to issue a license under ORS 744.338; and
(b) Is financially responsible and has a good business reputation.
(2) The director may refuse to issue a license in the name of any firm, partnership or corporation if the director is not satisfied that any officer, employee, stockholder or partner thereof who may materially influence the conduct of the applicant meets the standards of this section.
(3) The director may issue a license to a nonresident applicant only if the nonresident applicant files with the director in writing an appointment of the director to be the attorney of the applicant upon whom all legal process in any action or proceeding against the applicant may be served. In the appointment, the applicant shall agree that any lawful process against the applicant that is served upon the director shall be of the same legal force and validity as if served upon the applicant, and that the authority shall continue in force so long as any liability remains outstanding in this state. An appointment under this subsection becomes effective on the date that the director issues the license to the applicant.
(4) If the director denies an application, the director shall so inform the applicant, stating the grounds for the denial. [1995 c.342 §6]Section: Previous 744.316 744.319 744.320 744.321 744.323 744.325 744.326 744.328 744.330 744.331 744.333 744.335 744.336 744.338 744.340 Next
