(1) The depositing insurer or assessment association may, from time to time, exchange for the deposited securities, or any of them, other securities eligible for deposit if the aggregate value of such deposit will not thereby be reduced below the amount required by sections 44-319.01 to 44-319.13. Upon application of the depositing insurer or assessment association, the director may approve the withdrawal of securities which are in excess of the amount required by sections 44-319.01 to 44-319.13. Insurers and assessment associations may, upon an application approved by the director, withdraw all or any part of the securities so deposited upon good cause therefor being shown. Securities so withdrawn shall, except if withdrawn as the result of a merger, consolidation, or total reinsurance, be used to pay excess losses only and shall be restored within such time and under such conditions as the director may direct by order.
(2) If the depositing insurer or assessment association fails to comply with the requirements of subsection (1) of this section or the rules and regulations adopted and promulgated pursuant to section 44-319.11, such insurer or assessment association shall forfeit five hundred dollars for each such failure. The director shall collect and remit the forfeitures to the State Treasurer for distribution in accordance with Article VII, section 5, of the Constitution of Nebraska.
