Below you will find an outline of the plan rule amendment process. A list of amendments approved by the LAPP Sponsor Board can be found on the Plan Rule Amendments page.
Process for Plan Amendments
At the first Sponsor Board meeting of each year, the Board will consider a list of potential amendments requested by stakeholders. Stakeholders can submit requests for changes to plan rules using the Stakeholder Request for Plan Amendments form. The Board will decide which amendment requests will be considered for a Board decision.
The 2021 process will be as follows:
January 15, 2021*
All stakeholder requests for Plan amendments received in writing by this date will be eligible for Board consideration in the 2021 review cycle. The full list of requests will be posted under the Proposed Amendments tab (above).
February Sponsor Board Meeting
The Board will be presented with all requests for plan rule amendments and will decide which requests to consider in 2021. The requests to come back to the Board for a final decision in September will be posted under the Amendments Under Consideration tab.
September Sponsor Board meeting
The Board will make a decision on each proposed amendment, and the final decisions will be posted under the Board Decision tab.
* This date is for the first year of the process only. In future years, stakeholders will have a full year (until December 1) to submit requests.
All requests for plan rule amendments made by January 15, 2021 will be listed here, to be presented to the Sponsor Board at the February Board meeting.
