6-1206. Issuance of license; renewal
A. On the filing of a complete application, the superintendent shall investigate the financial condition and responsibility, financial and business experience, character and general fitness of the applicant. In his discretion, the superintendent may conduct an on-site investigation of the applicant, the reasonable cost of which shall be borne by the applicant. The superintendent shall issue a license to an applicant if the superintendent finds that all of the following conditions are met:
1. The applicant has complied with sections 6-1204, 6-1205 and 6-1205.01.
2. The competence, experience and integrity of the officers, directors and controlling persons and any proposed management personnel indicate that it would be in the interest of the public to permit such person to participate in the affairs of a licensee.
3. The applicant has paid the required license fee.
B. The superintendent shall approve or deny every application for an original license within one hundred twenty days after the date an application is complete, which period may be extended by the written consent of the applicant. The superintendent shall notify the applicant of the date on which the application is determined to be complete. In the absence of approval or denial of the application or consent to the extension of the one hundred twenty day period, the application is deemed approved and the superintendent shall issue the license effective as of the first business day after that one hundred twenty day period or any extended period.
C. A licensee shall pay a renewal fee as prescribed in section 6-126 on or before November 1 of each year. The renewal fee shall be accompanied by a renewal application in the form prescribed by the superintendent. A license for which no renewal fee and application have been received by November 1 shall be suspended. A licensee may renew a suspended license no later than December 1 of the year of expiration by paying the renewal fee plus one hundred dollars for each day the renewal fee and application were not received by the superintendent. A license expires on December 1 of each year, unless earlier renewed, surrendered or revoked. A license shall not be granted to the holder of an expired license or to an incorporator, director or officer of the holder of an expired license except on compliance with the requirements provided in this article for an original license.
