If the council makes subsequent recommendations for amendments, the council must:
Include the commission’s specified revisions in the recommendations; and
Make the subsequent recommendations for amendments within 155 days after the date that the commission returns the plan or amendments to the council for revision. The commission and the council may mutually agree to extend the time that the council is allowed under this subparagraph for submitting subsequent recommendations to the commission.
If the council does not make the subsequent recommendations for amendments within the time provided for in paragraph (b)(B) of this subsection, the commission may adopt the Territorial Sea Plan amendments recommended by the council under subsection (1) of this section, including any needed revisions specified by the commission.
