  3.  The director may promulgate rules to provide for a period of transition in order for a small employer carrier to come into compliance with subsection 2 of this section in the instance of acquisition of an additional class of business from another small employer carrier.

  4.  The director may approve the establishment of additional classes of business upon application to the director and a finding by the director that such action would enhance the efficiency and fairness of the small employer marketplace.
