(a) To receive approval of a State Commission or AAE, a State must formally establish
an entity that meets the corresponding composition, membership, authority, and duty
requirements of this part. (For the AAE, a State must demonstrate why it is impossible or unreasonable to establish
a State Commission; an approved AAE, however, has the same rights and responsibilities
as a State Commission.) Once the entity is established, the State must provide written notice—in a format
to be prescribed by the Corporation—to the chief executive officer of the Corporation
of the composition, membership, and authorities of the State Commission or AAE and
explain how the entity will perform its duties and functions. Further, the State must agree to, first, request approval from the Corporation for
any subsequent changes in the composition or duties of a State Commission or AAE the
State may wish to make, and, second, to comply with any future changes in Corporation
requirements with regard to the composition or duties of a State Commission or AAE. If a State meets the applicable requirements, the Corporation will approve the State
Commission or AAE.
(b) If the Corporation rejects a State application for approval of a State Commission
or AAE because that application does not meet one or more of the requirements of §§
2250.50 or 2550.60, it will notify the State of the reasons for rejection and offer
assistance to make any necessary changes. The Corporation will reconsider revised applications within 14 working days of resubmission.
