§33-47-3. Establishment of the commission and venue.
(a) The compacting states hereby create and establish a joint public agency known as the "Interstate Insurance Product Regulation Commission."

(b) The commission is a body corporate and politic and an instrumentality of the compacting states.

(c) The commission is solely responsible for its liabilities except as otherwise specifically provided in this article.

(d) Venue is proper and judicial proceedings by or against the commission shall be brought solely and exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction where the principal office of the commission is located.
