§ 143. Fees--Administrator's investigation--Issuance or denial of license
A. Upon the filing of an application and bond, payment of an annual license fee and an investigation fee, the Administrator of Consumer Credit shall conduct an investigation. If the Administrator finds that the financial responsibility, experience, character and general fitness of the applicant are such as to warrant belief that the business will be operated pursuant to the Credit Services Organization Act and rules promulgated pursuant thereto, the Administrator shall grant the application and issue to the applicant a license which will evidence the authority of the applicant to do business under the provisions of the Credit Services Organization Act.
B. If the Administrator does not so find facts sufficient to warrant issuance of a license, the Administrator shall notify the applicant. If within thirty (30) days of such notification the applicant requests a hearing on the application, a hearing shall be held within sixty (60) days after the date of the request. In the event of the denial of a license, the investigation fee shall be retained by the Administrator, but the annual license fee shall be returned to the applicant.
C. The Administrator shall grant or deny such application for license within sixty (60) days from its filing with the required fees, or from the hearing thereon, if any, unless the period is extended by written agreement between the applicant and the Administrator.
D. No license to engage in the business of a credit services organization shall be issued for any location if a license has been issued and is in effect under the provisions of Sections 3-501 through 3-514 of Title 14A of the Oklahoma Statutes. As used in this subsection the term “location” means the entire area in which a person licensed pursuant to any provision of Title 14A of the Oklahoma Statutes conducts business. No credit service organization may be connected with any location in which a person licensed pursuant to any provision of Title 14A of the Oklahoma Statutes conducts business, except by a passageway to which the public is not admitted.
E. The Commission on Consumer Credit may prescribe by rule a fee for each license change, duplicate license or returned check.
