By a contract of insurance of property or of any insurable interest in the property, the insurer may in connection with a special provision or endorsement made a part of the policy insure the cost of repair or replacement of the property, if damaged or destroyed by a hazard insured against, and without deduction of depreciation, subject to reasonable regulations that may be adopted by the director.

(d) Each violation of this section shall subject the violator to the penalties provided in AS 21.90.020 .
