14.02: Supplementary Rules

(1) Any retirement board may request the Commission to approve rules applicable to that board
which supplement the provisions of the Commission's rules. Supplementary rules will generally
be approved if:
(a) they are consistent with the Commission's rules or good cause exists for an
exception to the Commission's rules;
(b) their purpose cannot conveniently be accomplished by amendment of the Commission’s
rules; and
(c) they have been the subject of a public hearing before the board for which reasonable
notice has been given

(2) Supplementary rules shall take effect upon approval by the Commission or as may
otherwise be provided by the Commission. A current list of all boards for which supplementary
rules are in effect and copies of such rules shall be available upon request at the Public
Employee Retirement Administration Commission. Supplementary rules shall remain in effect
according to their terms as approved by the Commission or until later amended or repealed as
may be approved or required by the Commission.
