(e) If the staff of the commission determines under (d) of this section that the facts in support of the allegations in an inquiry, if those facts were true, would not constitute a violation of AS 24.60.200 - 24.60.260 or 2 AAC 50.705 - 2 AAC 50.890, the staff shall notify the individual who made the inquiry, the respondent, and the commission that the staff will not investigate the inquiry.
