Procedure for incorporation - Investigation as to fitness of stockholders and executive officers and necessity for banks.

The superintendent shall ascertain whether the character and general fitness of the persons named as proposed incorporators, proposed stockholders and proposed executive officers in the affidavit and in the proposed certificate of incorporation are such as to command the confidence of the community in which such bank is proposed to be located, and the superintendent shall make this inquiry and determination, regardless of whether or not objections to the incorporation are filed with him. The superintendent shall investigate the convenience and need for a bank in the community where the same is proposed to be located and shall also ascertain if there is sufficient business in said community to support said bank.
