If such rule adopted and promulgated by the superintendent is not enacted into law or adopted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code within thirty months from the date such rule is issued by the superintendent, such rule shall thereupon no longer be of any force or effect; however, the superintendent may adopt the rule under section 111.15 of the Revised Code pursuant to this section for an additional thirty-month period. The superintendent of building and loan associations may upon thirty days' written notice to domestic building and loan associations revoke any rule issued by virtue of the authority of this section.
