(2) The Board may provide by regulation for the procedures to be followed by any association submitting a plan of reorganization, merger, or consolidation pursuant to this section.

(a) Which would result in a monopoly, or which would be in furtherance of any combination or conspiracy to monopolize or to attempt to monopolize the savings and loan business in this State; or
(b) The effect of which in this State may be substantially to lessen competition, or to tend to create a monopoly, or which in any other manner would be in restraint of trade, unless it finds that the anticompetitive effects of the proposed transaction are clearly outweighed in the public interest by the probable effect of the proposed reorganization, merger, or consolidation or sale of assets in meeting the convenience and needs of the primary service area to be served.
(4) Each application for reorganization, merger, consolidation, or sale of assets out of the ordinary course of business must be accompanied by a nonrefundable filing fee as determined by the Board.
