If the Joint Ethics Committee, at any time during its consideration of any complaint
or allegation summary or during any proceeding, finds that there are reasonable grounds
to believe that a legislator may have committed a crime, the Joint Ethics Committee
(1) refer the matter to an appropriate prosecuting authority; and
(2) provide any information or evidence to the prosecuting authority that the Joint
Ethics Committee determines is appropriate.
