[§412:12-106] No concentration limit under Hawaii state law; waiver of federal concentration limits. (a) There shall be no state deposit cap or concentration limit under the law of this State.
(b) The commissioner may waive, on a case-by-case basis, the federal statewide concentration limits under section 44(b) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act; provided that the commissioner shall apply a standard that does not discriminate against out-of-state banks. In granting a waiver, the commissioner shall consider whether the waiver promotes the availability of financial services, the marketability of Hawaii banks, or another public interest. This section shall not affect the applicability, if any, of federal or state antitrust law. [L 1996, c 155, pt of §1]
