    4. “License” means a surety bail bond agent license issued by the commissioner to a qualified individual as provided in this section;
    5. “Solicit” includes any written or printed presentation or advertising made by mail or other publication, or any oral presentation or advertising in person or by means of telephone, radio or television which implies that an individual is licensed under this section, and any activity in arranging for bail which results in compensation to the individual conducting that activity;
    6. “Disqualifying offense” means: (A) A felony; or (B) a misdemeanor if an element of the offense involves dishonesty or misappropriation of money or property.

The commissioner may adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 relating to the approval of schools offering courses in the duties and responsibilities of surety bail bond agents, the content of such courses and the advertising to the public of the services of these schools.
  11. To further the enforcement of this section and to determine the eligibility of any licensee, the commissioner may, as often as he deems necessary, examine the books and records of any such licensee.
  12. A license may, in the discretion of the commissioner, be renewed or continued upon payment of the appropriate fee as the commissioner deems necessary without the resubmittal of the detailed information required in the original application.
  13. The commissioner shall adopt regulations in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 to implement subsections (a) to (l), inclusive, of this section.
