§1653.  Duties and powers of administrator in general

A.  The administrator shall administer this Chapter, and to that end he may adopt, amend, or rescind such rules and regulations, employ such persons, make such expenditures, require such reports, make such investigations, and take such other action as he deems necessary.

B.  The administrator shall determine his own organization and methods of procedure in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter and shall have an official seal which shall be judicially noticed.  Not later than the fifteenth day of March of each year, the administrator shall submit to the governor a report covering the administration and operation of this Chapter during the preceding calendar year and shall make such recommendations for amendments to this Chapter as he deems proper.  Such reports shall include a balance sheet of the monies in the fund in which there shall be provided, if possible, a reserve against the liability in future years to pay benefits in excess of the then current contributions, which reserve shall be set up by the administrator in accordance with accepted actuarial principles on the basis of statistics of employment, business activity, and other relevant factors for the longest possible period.  Whenever the administrator believes that a change in contribution or benefit rates will become necessary to protect the solvency of the fund or to maintain conformity with applicable federal law, he shall promptly so inform the governor and the legislature, and make recommendations with respect thereto.

Amended by Acts 1960, No. 501, §1; Acts 1997, No. 1053, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 1998.
