The motion, effective immediately, directed the Administrator not to pay new benefits unless the total costs of benefits are paid by the plan sponsor (Government of the Virgin Islands) in accordance with the law. The motion failed on a tied vote. Notwithstanding, the Administrator was directed to enforce the law.
