Section 2-31-6

Fire and extended coverage insurance required; certificate filed with commissioner; cancellation.

Before a license shall be issued to the applicant, he shall file with the commissioner a certificate which shall indicate that he has a fire and extended coverage insurance policy in effect and in amount that shall cover the grain of all depositors while in his custody for the full insurance values against loss or damage by fire, lightning, tornado, cyclones, explosions, windstorms, and such other perils as may be required by statute or the commissioner.

The name and address of the operator and location of each person in the insurance policy shall correspond with the same in the application.

Every fire and extended coverage insurance policy so filed shall contain a provision that it may not be cancelled by the principal or insurance company, except on 90 days prior notice in writing, by certified mail, to the commissioner mailed on the same day to the principal. The cancellation shall not affect the liability accrued or which may accrue under such insurance policy before the expiration of the 90 days. The notice shall contain the termination date.

The grain dealer shall immediately notify all depositors of grain when there is a notice of cancellation of his fire and extended coverage insurance policy, and further, the commissioner shall be responsible to assure notice of insurance cancellation is given to all depositors of grain within 30 days from date of notice from the principal or insurance company.
