         (e)  A commission shall send to the governor, the state
  auditor, [the comptroller,] and the Legislative Budget Board a copy
  of each report and audit required under this section or under
  Section 391.009. The state auditor may review each audit and
  report, subject to a risk assessment performed by the state auditor
  and to the legislative audit committee's approval of including the
  review in the audit plan under Section 321.013, Government Code. If
  the state auditor reviews the audit or report, the state auditor

  involving the administration or operation of a commission or its
  programs, the state auditor shall report its findings and related
  recommendations to the legislative audit committee, the governor,
  and the commission. The governor and the legislative audit
  committee may direct the commission to prepare a corrective action
  plan or other response to the state auditor's findings or
  recommendations. The legislative audit committee may direct the
  state auditor to perform any additional audit or investigative work
  that the committee determines is necessary.
