  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.
