After November 26, 2014, new adoption assistance agreements must not be executed under this section. Agreements that were signed on or before November 26, 2014, and were not in effect because the adoption finalization of the child did not occur on or before November 26, 2014, must be renegotiated according to the terms of Northstar Care for Children under chapter 256N. Agreements signed and in effect on or before November 26, 2014, must continue according to the terms of this section and applicable rules for the duration of the agreement, unless the commissioner and the adoptive parents choose to renegotiate the agreements under Northstar Care for Children consistent with section 256N.28, subdivision 7. After November 26, 2014, this section and associated rules must be referred to as the pre-Northstar Care for Children adoption assistance program and shall apply to children whose adoption assistance agreements were in effect on or before November 26, 2014, and whose adoptive parents have not renegotiated their agreements according to the terms of Northstar Care for Children.
