The Governor may at any time require information in writing under oath, from any officer, board, department or commission of the executive department or the principal officer or manager of any state institution, upon any subject relating to the condition, management and expense of their respective offices or institutions.
All state officers, boards, commissions, departments and institutions which receive, manage or disperse federal funds in connection with any state activity are required to report to the Governor, the Speaker of the House of Delegates and the President of the Senate within sixty days of receipt of written notice of a disallowance or potential disallowance of federal funds from any department of the government of the United States, which disallowance may, in any way, affect the fiscal condition of this State.
