(7)  Within ninety (90) days of completion of the proposed dissolution, conversion to a noncharitable organization, or termination and disposal of all or substantially all of its charitable assets, the charitable organization’s board shall deliver to the attorney general a list of who received the assets. The list shall include the address of each person who received the assets and indicate what assets each received.
(8)  If the attorney general opposes, in writing, a proposed dissolution, conversion to a noncharitable organization, or termination and disposal of all or substantially all of a charitable organization’s charitable assets, as set forth in the charitable organization’s notice under subsections (1) and (3) of this section, the charitable organization may not proceed forward with the actions proposed in its written notice for at least fourteen (14) days after the attorney general’s written response has been issued to allow the attorney general, in his discretion, to file suit seeking to block the charitable organization’s proposed dissolution, conversion to a noncharitable organization, or termination and disposal of its charitable assets, or otherwise to resolve the matter with the affected parties pursuant to section 48-1909, Idaho Code.

If the attorney general does not file a lawsuit within the fourteen (14) days provided in this section, the charitable organization may proceed with the proposed dissolution, conversion to a noncharitable organization, or termination and disposal of charitable assets and be deemed in compliance with subsections (1) and (3) of this section.
