Section 27-39-5

Powers of commissioner.

(a) The commissioner shall have full and complete authority to grant certificates of authorization to automobile clubs and associations, to revoke such certificates, and to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably necessary for the conduct of the business of such clubs and associations within the state and for carrying out the objects and purposes of this chapter. In determining if a certificate of authorization shall be issued, the commissioner shall take into consideration, along with all other factors, the name of the automobile club or association; and, if such name, emblem, or trademark is distinctive and not likely to mislead the public as to the nature or identity of the corporation using it or interfere with the transactions of any other automobile club already doing business in the state, it shall be entitled to be approved.

(b) The commissioner shall also have the authority to conduct hearings as provided under this title.
