(2) The Secretary of State registers an application by indicating thereon that it has been filed by the Secretary of State and the date of registration.

(a) Affect the validity or invalidity of the application in whole or part; or
(b) Relate to the correctness or incorrectness of information contained in the application.
(5) The Secretary of State’s refusal to register an assumed business name does not create a presumption that the application is invalid or that information contained in the application is incorrect. [1995 c.454 §13]
