When the aggregate amount of all such payments into the stock fund, together with accumulated interest thereon, less all its expenditures and known liabilities, becomes equal to 5% of the loss reserves of all stock carriers for the payment of benefits under this chapter or the federal "Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act," 44 Stat. 1424 (33 U.S.C. 901 et seq.), as authorized by this article as of December 31, next preceding, no further contributions to the fund shall be required to be made. But whenever thereafter, the amount of the fund shall be reduced below 5% of such loss reserves as of said date by reason of payments from and known liabilities of the fund, then contributions to the fund may be resumed forthwith pursuant to regulations of the Commissioner of Insurance, and may continue until the fund, over and above its known liabilities, shall be equal to not less than 3% nor more than 5% of such reserves.
The Commissioner of Insurance may by regulation provide that the amount of the stock fund may fluctuate between 3% and 5% of loss reserves of all stock carriers whenever he finds it to be in the best interest of the fund or advisable for its proper administration; except that no regulation shall require a stock carrier to make an additional contribution to the stock fund during the 12 month period following the effective date of this amendatory and supplementary act.
