Section 5-13B-25

Powers.

(a) An out-of-state state bank which establishes and maintains one or more branches in Alabama under this article may conduct any activities at such branch or branches that are authorized under the laws of this state for Alabama state banks.

(b) An Alabama state bank may conduct any activities at any branch outside Alabama that are permissible for a bank chartered by the host state where the branch is located, except to the extent such activities are expressly prohibited by the laws of this state; provided, however, that the superintendent shall waive any such prohibition unless he or she determines, by order or regulation, that the involvement of out-of-state branches of an Alabama state bank in particular activities would threaten the safety or soundness of the bank.
