AS 21.39.160. Penalties.

(a) If the director finds, following an appropriate hearing, that a person or organization has violated a provision of this chapter, the director may impose a civil penalty not to exceed $200 or the actual amount of gain, whichever is greater, for each violation, but if the director finds the violation to be wilful the director may impose a penalty of $2,000 or three times the actual amount of gain, whichever is greater, for each violation. The penalties may be in addition to any other penalty provided by law. In this section, "gain" means the difference between the amount actually charged and the amount that should have been charged under applicable filings of the person or organization.

(b) The director may suspend the license of a rating organization or insurer that fails to comply with an order of the director within the time limited by the order or an extension of time granted by the director. The director may not suspend the license of a rating organization or insurer for failure to comply with an order until the time prescribed for an appeal has expired or, if an appeal has been taken, until the order has been affirmed. The director may determine when a suspension of license becomes effective. The suspension shall remain in effect for the period fixed by the director unless the director modifies or rescinds the suspension, or until the order upon which the suspension is based is modified, rescinded, or reversed.

(c) A penalty may not be imposed and a license may not be suspended or revoked except upon a written order of the director, stating findings, made after a hearing held upon not less than 10 days written notice to the person or organization specifying the alleged violation.
