(a) The commission may periodically submit to any state agency recommendations designed to encourage such agency to carry out its functions in a manner consistent with the policies of the protection plan. The recommendations may include proposed changes in regulations, rules, and statutes.
(b) Such state agency shall review and consider such recommendations and shall, in the event the recommendations are not implemented, report to the commission or the Governor and the Legislature its action and the reasons therefor within six months after receipt of the recommendations. Such report shall also include the agency’s comments on any legislation which may have been proposed by the commission.
(c) The procedures provided in this section do not relieve the commission of its responsibility to submit recommendations to other state agencies in a timely manner pursuant to existing procedures; and, to the maximum extent possible, the commission shall submit any recommendations authorized by subdivision (a) pursuant to such existing procedures.
