    I believe Ezra is talking about the Sec 1311 provisions that Sec 1302 refers to (i.e., qualified plans must meet the Sec 1311 criteria).

    This is one of the biggest reasons legislation is always a pain to read...

    Rather than just saying plan must do A, B, and C -- it usually lays out these broad qualifications and then outsources the details to another section... which in turns refers to yet another section... and so on.  By the time you follow the chain, you've almost forgotten what you were reading about in the first place.

    I guess everyone's got their own blog now.

      I think those who don't have any experience reading legislation (read most people) get it wrong and end up perpetuating misinformation.
