    598-A:3 List of Professional Bondsmen. – The secretary of state or designee shall furnish all superior court clerks, all district courts having authority to accept bail, all jails, and all police stations with a list of the names of all persons registered as professional bondsmen and shall notify such clerks, courts, jails, and police stations of any change in a bondsman's status. The secretary of state shall update the list as necessary, but not less than once per year. The list shall include the following statement in bold type: "You are encouraged to contact more than one bail bondsman because not all bail bondsmen charge the same fees or provide the same services." The unaltered list shall be displayed prominently and visibly to defendants in all courts, jails, and police stations. No other list shall be displayed, furnished, or provided.
