A BILL
To provide that taxpayers may rely on Internal Revenue Service guidelines
in determining the funding limits for pension plans.
  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
  States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. RELIANCE ON IRS GUIDELINES IN DETERMINING PENSION PLAN FUNDING
LIMITS.
  (a) GUIDELINES FOR ACTUARIAL ASSUMPTIONS- For purposes of section 412(c)(3)
  of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and section 302(c)(3) of the Employee
  Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (29 U.S.C. 1082(c)(3)), actuarial
  assumptions used by a plan shall be treated as reasonable if such assumptions
  are within the guidelines set forth in the Actuarial Guidelines Handbook
  (Internal Revenue Manual 7(10)5(10), as in effect on December 12, 1984).
  (b) PERIOD PROVISION IN EFFECT- The provisions of subsection (a) shall
  apply for all plan years ending after December 12, 1984, and beginning
  before such time as modifications to the guidelines become final, except
  that such modifications shall be applied prospectively.
  (c) RELIANCE ON PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE- If a plan lacks sufficient experience
  to fall within the purview of the Actuarial Guidelines Handbook, deference
  shall be given to the judgment of the plan's enrolled actuary with respect
  to the selection of the actuarial assumption.
