(3).    If a search of the records of the filing office under the debtor's correct name, using the filing office's standard search logic, if any, would disclose a financing statement that fails sufficiently to provide the name of the debtor in accordance with section 9-1503, subsection (1), the name provided does not make the financing statement seriously misleading.
[ 1999, c. 699, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1999, c. 699, Pt. A, §4 (AFF) .]
(4).    For purposes of section 9-1508, subsection (2), the "debtor's correct name" in subsection (3) means the correct name of the new debtor.
