(2) The administrator appointed by the commission under ORS 471.720 (Administrator) may extend a temporary letter of authority granted under the provisions of this section for a period not to exceed 30 days if the commission has not granted or denied the application at the end of the 90-day period provided for in subsection (1) of this section.
