  • § 6017. Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund

    (a)(1) There is hereby created a fund to be known as the Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund for the purpose of providing the financial means for the Commissioner of Financial Regulation to administer this chapter, chapter 142, and chapter 142A of this title and for reasonable expenses incurred in promoting the captive insurance industry in Vermont. The transfer of 11 percent of the premium tax under subsection 6014(h) of this title, and all fees and assessments received by the Department pursuant to the administration of these chapters shall be credited to this Fund. Of this amount, not more than three percent of the premium tax under section 6014 may be expended by the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, with approval of the Secretary of Administration, for promotional expenses. All fees received by the Department from reinsurers who assume risk solely from captive insurance companies and are subject to the provisions of subsections 3634a(a) through (f) of this title, shall be deposited into the Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund. All fines and administrative penalties, however, shall be deposited directly into the General Fund.

    (2) All payments from the Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund for the maintenance of staff and associated expenses, including contractual services as necessary, shall be disbursed from the State Treasury only upon warrants issued by the Commissioner of Finance and Management, after receipt of proper documentation regarding services rendered and expenses incurred.

    (b) At the end of each fiscal year, the balance in the Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund shall be transferred to the General Fund.

    (c) The Commissioner of Finance and Management may anticipate receipts to the Captive Insurance Regulatory and Supervision Fund and issue warrants based thereon. (Added 1987, No. 47, § 4, eff.
