§213. Liquidation; rehabilitation

            A. Whenever the board of directors of any association operating under this Subpart shall be desirous of discontinuing the operations of the association, it shall immediately notify the commissioner of insurance and submit a plan for the liquidation of the association. The commissioner of insurance shall cause an examination of the association to be made and if it appears that the association has complied with all the provisions of this Subpart, he shall direct that a meeting of the policyholders be called, at which meeting the proposed plan of liquidation shall be submitted and if approved by the policyholders, shall be carried into effect. At such meeting, the policyholders shall be permitted, if they elect to do so, to elect a new board of directors and in lieu of liquidating continue the operation of the association. Should the policyholders disapprove of the plan of liquidation and fail to reorganize in such a manner as to continue the operation of the association, the association shall be liquidated under the direction of the commissioner of insurance as in the case of associations which have persisted in the violation of the provisions of this Subpart, the articles, or bylaws.

            B. Whenever it appears to the commissioner that any association is failing to comply with the provisions of this Subpart or its articles or bylaws in any respect, he shall immediately notify the officers of the association to that effect, specifying in what respects it is claimed that the association is failing to comply and if after such notice the association persists in the violations of the provisions hereof, the commissioner may proceed to apply for rehabilitation or liquidation of the association in accordance with R.S. 22:73, 96, Subpart H of Part III of this Chapter, R.S. 22:731 et seq., and Chapter 9 of this Title, R.S. 22:2001 et seq.
