(c) In cases involving extraordinary circumstances requiring immediate action, the commissioner may take any action permitted by Section 81-27-2.302(a) or (b) without notice or opportunity for hearing, but shall promptly afford a subsequent hearing upon an application to rescind the action taken.  The commissioner shall promptly give notice to the home state regulator of each enforcement action taken against an out-of-state trust institution and, to the extent practicable, shall consult and cooperate with the home state regulator in pursuing and resolving said enforcement action.
