(2) If the association fails to submit a suitable plan of operation within 120 days following the effective date of this act, or, if at any time thereafter the association fails to submit suitable amendments to the plan, the commissioner, after notice and hearing, shall adopt and promulgate such reasonable rules and regulations as are necessary or advisable to effectuate the provisions of this act. Such rules and regulations shall continue in force until modified by the commissioner or superseded by a plan submitted by the association and approved by the commissioner.

A delegation under this subsection shall take effect only with the approval of both the board of directors and the commissioner, and may be made only to a corporation, association or organization which extends protection not substantially less favorable and effective than that provided by this act.
