(2) If the director rejects, or requests additional information for, the new plan, updated plan or amendment, the director must provide the stewardship organization with the reasons in writing. The stewardship organization shall have 60 days from the date that the rejection or request for additional information is received to submit to the director any additional information necessary for the approval of the new plan, updated plan or amendment.
(3) The director’s rejection of, or request for additional information for, an updated plan or amendment submitted under this section does not relieve the stewardship organization from continuing to implement the architectural paint stewardship program in compliance with the approved plan pending a final action by the director on the updated plan or amendment.
