(a) If within 30 days following the giving of the notice provided for in § 2110 of this title the insurer has not ceased such dissemination, and if the Commissioner has reason to believe that such insurer is soliciting, issuing or delivering contracts of insurance to residents of this State or collecting premiums on such contracts or performing any other transaction in connection with such insurance, and that a proceeding by him or her in respect to such matters would be to the interest of the public, he or she shall take action against such insurer under Chapter 23 of this title.

(b) If upon such hearing the Commissioner finds that the insurer has misrepresented, as referred to in § 2110 of this title, he or she shall by order on such hearing require the insurer to cease and desist from such violation, and shall mail a copy of the order by registered or certified mail to the insurer at its principal place of business last of record with the Commissioner and to the insurance supervisory official of the insurer's domiciliary state or province. Each violation thereafter of such desist order shall subject the insurer to a penalty of $5,000, to be recovered by a civil action brought against the insurer by the Commissioner. Service of process upon the insurer in such action may be made upon the Commissioner pursuant to § 2105 or Chapter 23 of this title or in any other lawful manner.
