The legislature declares that insurance transactions with nonadmitted insurers are so affected with a public interest as to require regulation, taxation, supervision, and control of the transactions and matters relating to nonadmitted insurance as provided in this chapter in order to

(3) provide a method of substituted service of process upon nonadmitted insurers for proceedings before the director and in the courts in this state;

(4) provide for the public the ability to self-procure insurance directly from nonadmitted insurers;

(5) protect the revenue of the state;

(6) protect regulated, admitted insurers from unregulated and unfair competition by nonadmitted insurers;

(7) regulate and supervise the effectuation of nonadmitted insurance under the laws of this state and 15 U.S.C. 1011; and

(8) maintain reliable insurance markets.
