§383-68  Contribution rate schedules; fund solvency rate schedule; rates based on experience.  (a)  Before December 31 of each year the fund solvency contribution rate applicable for the following calendar year shall be determined on the basis of the relationship between the most recent current reserve fund and the most recent adequate reserve fund.  The fund solvency contribution rate shall apply for calendar years 1985 through 1991 and shall be that rate that appears on the same line as the ratio (rounded to the nearest hundredth) of the current reserve fund to the adequate reserve fund in the fund solvency contribution rate schedule set forth in this paragraph.

     (b)  For calendar years 1985 through 1991 the contribution rate of any employer eligible for a reduced rate in accordance with section [383-66(a)(2)] shall be the sum of the employer's basic contribution rate for such year determined pursuant to this subsection and the fund solvency contribution rate determined for such year pursuant to subsection (a); except that no employer's contribution rate shall be less than zero, no employer's contribution rate shall be greater than five and four-tenths per cent, and no employer with a negative reserve ratio shall have a contribution rate less than that employer's basic contribution rate.

     Subject to the requirements of sections 383-63 to 383-67 and 383-69, an employer's basic contribution rate for a calendar year shall be that rate which appears on the same line as the employer's reserve ratio for the year in the basic contribution rate schedule set forth in this subsection.
