     (b)  A person licensed as an insurance producer in another state who moves to this State shall make application within ninety days of establishing legal residence to become a resident licensee pursuant to section 431:9A-106.  No prelicensing educational component or examination shall be required of that person to obtain any line of authority previously held in the prior state except where the commissioner determines otherwise by rule.
