 rules, or regulations.
   §  2.  Powers.  The  department of state may consult with any state or

 such  entity  that  is  relevant  and material to the completion of this

 act,  the  department of state shall deliver a report of the findings of
 the study conducted pursuant to section one of this act to the governor,

   § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
