9-513a. Same; issuance of license; revocation of license, when. The commissioner, after notice and an opportunity for a hearing, may deny, suspend, revoke or refuse to renew or approve a license issued pursuant to this act, or issue a cease and desist order if the commissioner finds any of the following are applicable to any person who is required to be licensed under this act or such person's agent:

(a) The financial responsibility, character, reputation, experience and general fitness of the person, such person's senior officers, directors and principal stockholders are such to warrant the belief that the business may not be operated efficiently, fairly and in the public interest;

(b) the person may be financially unable to perform such person's obligations or that the person has willfully failed without reasonable cause to pay or provide for payment of any of such person's obligations related to the person's money transmission business;

(c) the person no longer meets a requirement for initial granting of a license;

(d) the person has filed with the commissioner any document or statement falsely representing or omitting a material fact;

(e) the person concealed a fact or a condition exists which would clearly have justified the commissioner's refusal to grant a license had the fact or condition been known to exist at the time the application for the license was made;

(f) the person or a senior officer, director or a stockholder who owns more than 10% of the money transmission business' outstanding stock has been convicted of a crime involving fraud, dishonesty or deceit;

(g) there has been entry of a federal or state administrative order against the person for violation of any rule and regulation applicable to the conduct of the person's money transmission business;

(i) a failure to pay to the commissioner any fee required by this act;

(j) the person has engaged in any transaction, practice or business conduct that is fraudulent or deceptive in connection with the business of money transmission;

(k) the person advertises, displays, distributes, broadcasts or televises any false, misleading or deceptive statement or representation with regard to rates, terms or conditions for the transmission of money;

(l) the person fails to keep and maintain sufficient records to permit an audit to satisfactorily disclose to the commissioner the licensee's compliance with the provisions of the act;

(m) the person has been the subject of any disciplinary action by this or any other state or federal agency;

(n) a final judgment has been entered against the person in a civil action and the commissioner finds the conduct on which the judgment is based indicates that it would be contrary to the public interest to permit such person to be licensed;

(o) the person has violated any order issued by the commissioner, any provision of this act, any rule and regulation adopted thereto, or any other state or federal law applicable to money transmission; or

(p) the person has refused or otherwise failed to provide, after a reasonable time as determined by the commissioner, any information necessary to approve or renew an application or license issued pursuant to this act.
