Existing law requires the commissioner, upon the filing of an application to establish a bank or trust company, to make or cause to be made a careful investigation and examination relative to, among other things, the character, reputation, and financial standing of the organizers or incorporators, as specified.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
