  Section 1. Subdivision 7 of section 32 of the public  health  law,  as
added by chapter 442 of the laws of 2006, is amended to read as follows:
  7.  to  make  information  and evidence relating to suspected criminal
acts which he or she may obtain in carrying out his or her duties avail-
able to appropriate law enforcement officials and to  consult  with  the
deputy  attorney general for Medicaid fraud control, the welfare inspec-
tor general, and other state and federal law enforcement  officials  for
coordination of criminal investigations and prosecutions.
  The inspector shall refer suspected fraud or criminality to the deputy
attorney  general for Medicaid fraud control OR ANY PROSECUTOR OF COMPE-
TENT JURISDICTION and make any other referrals to such  deputy  attorney
general  OR  SUCH PROSECUTOR as required or contemplated by federal law.
At any time after such referral, with ten days  written  notice  to  the
deputy  attorney general for Medicaid fraud control or such shorter time
as such deputy attorney general consents to,  the  inspector  may  addi-
tionally provide relevant information about suspected fraud or criminal-
ity  to  any  other  federal  or  state  law enforcement agency that the
inspector deems appropriate under the circumstances;
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
