(b) No such insurance company organized under the laws of this state and transacting business in this state shall expose itself to loss on any one risk or hazard to an amount exceeding 10% of its surplus unless the excess shall be reinsured in some other company duly authorized to transact similar business in this state or as otherwise provided in the insurance code and no such insurance company not organized under the laws of this state and transacting business in this state shall expose itself to loss on any one risk or hazard to an amount exceeding 10% of its surplus unless the excess shall be reinsured either in some company duly authorized to transact similar business in this state or as provided by the laws of such company's domiciliary state.
