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.

     58-35-4.   "County mutual insurer" defined--Continuation of prior business in noncontiguous counties. An insurer authorized to insure only property located in the county of its principal office and in those counties contiguous to the county of its principal office in this state, but including personal property temporarily removed therefrom, is a "county mutual insurer." However, those county farm mutuals insuring property located in noncontiguous counties as of August 25, 1978, may continue to insure property located in those noncontiguous counties served as of August 25, 1978, upon registration prior to January 1, 1980, with the director. The director of the Division of Insurance may permit a county farm mutual which otherwise does not meet the requirements of this section to insure property located in counties which would be considered noncontiguous to its home office subsequent to August 25, 1978, if, after a hearing, he finds that the violation of this section occurs because of a merger or consolidation consummated subsequent to August 25, 1978, as a result of bona fide negotiations begun prior to August 25, 1978, provided that the hearing is held prior to January 1, 1980.
