Section 20. No company authorized to transact the business of insurance in this Commonwealth shall directly or indirectly contract for or effect any reinsurance of any risk or part thereof taken by it on property in this Commonwealth with any company not authorized to transact

such business of insurance in this Commonwealth : proProviso. vided, however, that if it shall be found impossible to

obtain in the companies authorized to transact business in
this Commonwealth a sufficient amount of insurance to
cover any single risk, reinsurance of policies upon such
risk may be permitted in companies not so authorized ;
and whenever any such reinsurance shall be transacted the
company effecting the same shall make a sworn report
thereof to the insurance commissioner at the time of filing
its annual statement, and at such other times as he may
request, and such reinsurance shall not reduce the reserve
which would otherwise be required on account of the
original policy, or reduce the taxes which would other-
wise be chargeable, or increase the amount it is authorized
to have at risk in any town or fire insurance district. And
no company shall insure in a single hazard a larger sum
than one tenth of its net assets : provided, however, that a
mutual boiler insurance company of this Commonwealth
may insure in a single risk an amount not exceeding one
fourth of its net assets.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
