Effect of Amendments

D.C. Law 17-155, in the section name line, substituted “resident insurance producer” for “for”; in subsec. (a), substituted “An individual applying for a resident insurance” for “A person applying for an insurance”, and substituted “Uniform Individual Application” for “Uniform Application”; in subsec. (b), substituted “applying for a resident business entity producer license shall make application to the Commissioner on” for “acting as an insurance producer shall obtain an insurance producer license. Application shall be made using”; and repealed subsec. (d), which had read as follows: “(d) An insurer that sells, solicits, or negotiates any form of limited line credit insurance shall provide to each individual whose duties will include selling, soliciting, or negotiating limited line credit insurance a program of instruction that is approved by the Commissioner.”

D.C. Law 17-353, in the section heading, inserted “for”.

D.C. Law 18-223, in subsec. (a)(2), substituted “set forth in § 31-1131.12; provided, that if an applicant for a title insurance producer license has been convicted of any such act and 10 years have elapsed since the individual’s conviction, and a title insurer submits written verification that the person has had authority from the title insurer to issue title insurance policies or commitments related to real or personal property within the District of Columbia for a period of not less than 3 years prior to the application for license, such act or conviction may be considered not to apply by the Commissioner” for “set forth in § 31-1131.12”.

The 2013 amendment by D.C. Law 20-40 deleted “provided, that if an applicant for a title insurance producer license has been convicted of any such act and 10 years have elapsed since the individual’s conviction, and a title insurer submits written verification that the person has had authority from the title insurer to issue title insurance policies or commitments related to real or personal property within the District of Columbia for a period of not less than 3 years prior to the application for license, such act or conviction may be considered not to apply by the Commissioner” from the end of (a)(2).
