AS 06.20.060. Issuance of License.

Upon the filing of the application, the payment of the fees and the approval of the bond, the department shall issue a license to the applicant if it finds upon investigation that (1) the financial responsibility, experience, character, and general fitness of the applicant and of its members if the applicant is a copartnership or association, and of its officers and directors if the applicant is a corporation, are such as to command the confidence of the community and to warrant belief that the business will be operated honestly, fairly, and efficiently within the purposes of this chapter, and (2) allowing the applicant to engage in business at the location will provide accessibility and convenience for borrowers of money, and (3) the applicant has available for the operation of the business at the specific location liquid assets of at least $25,000, or, in the case of a multiple office license, that the equivalent amount is available to each office from a central account maintained by the applicant. The foregoing facts are conditions precedent to the issuance of a license under this chapter. The license permits the applicant to make loans in accordance with this chapter at the location or locations specified in the application. The license remains in full force and effect until it is surrendered by the licensee or revoked or suspended. If the department denies the application, it shall notify the applicant of the denial, bill the applicant for any outstanding expenses incurred by the department during the investigation and return the bond if those expenses have been paid. The department shall approve or deny every application for license within 60 days from the filing of the application with the fees and the approved bond. If the application is denied, the department shall, within 20 days thereafter, serve upon the applicant a copy of the written decision and findings. The decision and findings may be reviewed in the manner provided in AS 44.62.560 and 44.62.570 (Administrative Procedure Act).
