(c) The tolling shall apply only to approvals or permits in effect on November 9, 2009, and those issued between November 9, 2009, and June 30, 2017, and shall not revive expired approvals.

(d) The expiration dates for all permits and approvals issued before the tolling period began will be recalculated as of July 1, 2017, by adding thereto the number of days between November 9, 2009, and the day on which the permit or approval would otherwise have expired. The expiration dates for all permits and approvals issued during the tolling period will be recalculated as of July 1, 2017, by adding thereto the number of days between the day the permit or approval was issued and the day the permit or approval otherwise would have expired.
