Section 27-39-2

Applicability of chapter.

This chapter shall be deemed and held exclusive authority for the organization and operation of automobile clubs and associations within this state, and such clubs and associations shall not be subject to any other laws respecting insurance companies of any class, kind, or character except as to the conduct of hearings by the commissioner and appeals therefrom; provided, however, that this chapter shall not affect the validity of any membership certificate of any automobile club or association issued and outstanding prior to January 1, 1972. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, nothing in this chapter shall be construed as authority for a licensed automobile club or association to provide or furnish insurance coverage unless such clubs shall have complied with all the laws and regulations required of insurance companies authorized to do business in this state.
