Prohibits the Director from making such requests for an industry-wide report, or for a report pertaining to two or more such persons.

Authorizes the prudential regulator to deny any request for a report or information made by the Director with respect to such persons.

Requires the prudential regulator who fulfills the Director's request for a report to do so with reports that have been furnished to a federal or state agency (or are required to have been furnished to a federal or state agency.

Instructs the Director to accept existing reports in formats consistent with those submitted to the prudential regulator and federal and state agencies if the prudential regulator has determined that they provide the information requested.
