Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     51A-6A-19.   Determining capital--Minimum--Purpose of capital--Fidelity bond and liability insurance policy. For purposes of this section, the capital of a trust company is the total of the aggregate par value of its outstanding shares of capital stock or ownership units, its surplus, and its undivided profits. The minimum capital of a trust company is two hundred thousand dollars. The director may require that the trust company have more capital than the amount specified if the director determines that the amount and character of the anticipated business of the trust company and the safety of the customers so require. This chapter recognizes that capital for a trust company serves a different purpose than does capital for a bank. It is not intended that capital requirements for trust companies be judged by the same standards as banks. Basic protection for fiduciary clients of a trust company shall be provided by the purchase of a fidelity bond and a director's and officer's liability insurance policy. The bond and insurance shall be in an amount of not less than one million dollars each. The trust company shall give notice of cancellation or nonrenewal of the bond or insurance policy to the director within ten days of the receipt of cancellation or nonrenewal. Except as may be provided elsewhere in this chapter, no trust company may reduce voluntarily its capital stock or ownership units or surplus below the amount required in this section.
