The facility shall forward to the commissioner the names of insurance producers who fail to cooperate or who appear to fail to make reasonable efforts on behalf of applicants for insurance to obtain insurance in the normal market.
(2) Assessments upon each insurer participating in this program shall be levied by the facility on the same percentage allocation basis as the insurer's premiums written bears to the total of all premiums written by all insurers participating in the program.
(a) The maximum limit of liability that may be placed through this program on any one property at one location is $1,500,000. The facility undertakes the responsibility of seeking to place that portion of a risk that exceeds $1,500,000.
(b) The term "at one location" as used in this chapter refers to real and personal property consisting of and contained in a single building, or consisting of and contained in contiguous buildings under one ownership.
