A. The commission may propound to any limited liability company, registered foreign limited liability company, designating foreign company or registered foreign series and to any member or manager of the company or series interrogatories as may be reasonably necessary and proper to enable the commission to ascertain whether the company or series complied with all applicable provisions of this chapter.  The interrogatories shall be answered within thirty days after the mailing of the interrogatories or within an additional time fixed by the commission, and the answers to the interrogatories shall be full and complete and shall be made in writing and under penalty of perjury.  If the interrogatories are directed to an individual, they shall be answered by the individual, and if directed to a company or foreign series they shall be answered by a member, if the company or foreign series is a member-managed company or foreign series, or by a manager, if the company or foreign series is a manager-managed company or foreign series.  The commission is not required to file any document to which the interrogatories relate until the interrogatories have been answered as provided in this section or if the answers to the interrogatories disclose that the document is not in conformity with this chapter.  The commission shall certify to the attorney general, for such action as the attorney general deems appropriate, all interrogatories and answers to the interrogatories that disclose a violation of any of the provisions of this chapter.

B. Interrogatories propounded by the commission and the answers to the interrogatories are not open to public inspection and the commission may not disclose any facts or information obtained from the interrogatories and answers, except that such interrogatories, answers, facts or information may be made open to public inspection or disclosed if the commission's official duty requires the facts or information to be made public or if the interrogatories or the answers are required for evidence in any criminal proceeding or in any other action by this state.
