An indictment or information may not be returned under this chapter more than five years after the alleged violation.

(b) The administrator may refer the evidence that is available concerning violations of this chapter or a regulation or order under this chapter to the attorney general who may, with or without a reference, institute appropriate criminal proceedings under this chapter.
