AS 44.81.010. Alaska Commercial Fishing and Agriculture Bank.

(a) There is established the Alaska Commercial Fishing and Agriculture Bank. The exercise by the bank of the powers conferred by this chapter is considered to be for a public purpose. In the exercise of its powers under AS 44.81.215 (11), the bank is acting as an agent under the express authority and reservations of the state as the issuer of limited entry permits under AS 16.43. The bank is exempt from the provisions of AS 06.05 (Alaska Banking Code) and AS 10.15 (Alaska Cooperative Corporation Act) in its structure and operations and in the exercise of powers granted by this chapter, and the bank is exempt from AS 45.45.010 - 45.45.090 when lending money under this chapter.

(b) For the purpose of acquiring and accumulating capital of the bank, the board may issue nonvoting, preferred shares of stock in the bank and determine the value of each share. The state, through the Department of Revenue, may purchase the nonvoting, preferred shares issued by the bank. Shares purchased by the state shall be repurchased by the bank within 20 years after their purchase. If the bank fails to repurchase the shares within 20 years after their purchase by the state, the commissioner of commerce, community, and economic development may appoint a receiver to direct, manage, and operate the bank until the shares have been repurchased. Upon voluntary or involuntary liquidation of the bank, and upon repayment of all legal debts and obligations of the bank, all shares of nonvoting, preferred stock owned by the state have priority for redemption over all other forms and amounts of ownership of the bank.

(c) [Repealed, Sec. 43 ch 85 SLA 1988].
