(a) While a domestic mutual insurer maintains the deposits and surplus funds necessary for the kinds of insurance it is transacting and is otherwise in compliance with this title and is in a sound condition it may extinguish the contingent liability of its members as to all its policies in force and may omit provisions imposing contingent liability in all its policies currently issued upon receiving written approval by the Commissioner. The Commissioner shall revoke the authority of a domestic mutual insurer to issue policies without contingent liability at any time the insurer's assets are less than the sum of its liabilities and the surplus required for the authority or if the insurer, by resolution of the board of directors approved by a majority of its members present and voting in person or by proxy at a meeting called for that purpose, requests that the authority be revoked.

(b) A foreign or alien mutual insurer may issue nonassessable policies to its members in this state pursuant to its articles of incorporation and the laws of its domicile.
