26-3304. Trust office — Representative trust office. (1) A state trust institution may establish or acquire, and maintain, trust offices or representative trust offices anywhere in this state. A state trust institution desiring to establish or acquire, and maintain, such an office shall file a written notice with the director setting forth the name of the state trust institution, the location of the proposed additional office and whether the additional office will be a trust office or a representative trust office, furnish a copy of the resolution adopted by the board authorizing the additional office and pay the filing fee, if any, prescribed by the director.
(2) The state trust institution may commence business at the additional office on the thirty-first day after the date the director receives the notice, unless the director specifies an earlier or later date.
(3) The thirty (30) day period of review may be extended by the director on a determination that the written notice raises issues that require additional information or additional time for analysis. If the period of review is extended, the state trust institution may establish the additional office only on prior written approval by the director.
(4) The director may deny approval of the additional office if the director finds that the state trust institution lacks sufficient financial resources to undertake the proposed expansion without adversely affecting its safety or soundness or that the proposed office would be contrary to the public interest.
