AGO 1965 NO. 57 > Dec 14 1965

Section 2, chapter 153, Laws of 1965, of the escrow agent registration act, exempts title insurance companies that engage in the escrow business from the provisions of the act but does not similarly exempt title companies.

AGO 1965 NO. 58 > Dec 14 1965

Applicants for registration under the escrow agent registration act, chapter 153, Laws of 1965, who are individuals or partnerships not having any officers or employees are not required to obtain a "primary commercial blanket bond" since coverage under such bond only protects the employers from the acts of his employees and officers.
