    Sec. 130.5. Contents of corporate governance annual disclosure.
    (a) The insurer or insurance group has discretion over the responses to the corporate governance annual disclosure inquiries if the corporate governance annual disclosure contains the material information necessary to permit the Director to gain an understanding of the insurer's or insurance group's corporate governance structure, policies, and practices. The Director may request additional information that he or she deems material and necessary to provide the Director with a clear understanding of the corporate governance policies, the reporting or information system, or controls implementing those policies.
    (b) Notwithstanding subsection (a), the corporate governance annual disclosure shall be prepared in a manner consistent with rules adopted by the Director. Documentation and supporting information shall be maintained and made available upon examination or upon the request of the Director.
    (c) The Director may retain, at the insurer's expense, third-party consultants, including attorneys, actuaries, accountants, and other experts not otherwise a part of the Director's staff, as may be reasonably necessary to assist the Director in reviewing the corporate governance annual disclosure and related information or the insurer's compliance with this Article. Any persons retained shall be under the direction and control of the Director and shall act only in an advisory capacity.
