33-2-126. Admission as domestic insurer -- conversion to foreign insurer. (1) An insurer organized under the laws of any other state and admitted to do business in this state for the purposes of writing insurance may become a domestic insurer by complying with all of the laws relative to the organization and licensing of a domestic insurer of the same type, and designating its principal place of business in this state. An insurer complying with this subsection is entitled to a certificate of redomestication and a certificate of authority to transact business in this state, is subject to the authority and jurisdiction of this state, and has the same rights and obligations as other domestic insurers.
(2) A domestic insurer may, upon approval of the commissioner, transfer its domicile to any other state in which it is admitted to transact insurance. If the insurer is otherwise qualified, the commissioner shall approve a proposed transfer unless the commissioner determines a transfer is not in the interest of the policyholders of this state. Upon a transfer, the insurer ceases to be a domestic insurer.
