(2) Have a registered agent in this state for sixty (60) consecutive days.

(b) If the Secretary of State determines that one or more grounds exist for administratively dissolving a limited partnership, the Secretary of State shall serve the partnership with notice in a record of the Secretary of State's determination.

(c) If a limited partnership, not later than sixty (60) days after service of the notice under subsection (b), does not cure or demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Secretary of State the nonexistence of each ground determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State shall administratively dissolve the partnership by signing a statement of administrative dissolution that recites the grounds for dissolution and the effective date of dissolution.  The Secretary of State shall file the statement and serve a copy on the partnership pursuant to Section 79-35-13, except that the statement of administrative dissolution may be served by first-class mail.
