4971.  (a) Before making a demand that the Governor of another state
surrender an individual charged criminally in this state with having
failed to provide for the support of an obligee, the Governor of
this state may require a prosecutor of this state to demonstrate that

for support pursuant to this chapter or that the proceeding would be
of no avail.
   (b) If, under this chapter or a law substantially similar to this
chapter, the Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, or the
Revised Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, the Governor
of another state makes a demand that the Governor of this state
surrender an individual charged criminally in that state with having
failed to provide for the support of a child or other individual to
whom a duty of support is owed, the Governor may require a prosecutor
to investigate the demand and report whether a proceeding for
