2.For the purpose of discovering violations of this article or securing information lawfully required by him or her hereunder, the superintendent may at any time, and as often as he or she may determine, investigate the business and examine the books, accounts, records, and files of every licensee under this article and any entity with which such individual is associated as an employee or independent contractor. For that purpose the superintendent shall have free access to the offices and places of business, books, accounts, papers, records, files, safes and vaults of all such entities. The superintendent shall have authority to require the attendance of and to examine under oath all persons whose testimony he or she may deem necessary or desirable relative to such business. The expenses incurred in making any examination pursuant to this section shall be assessed against and paid by the licensee so examined, except that traveling and subsistence expenses so incurred shall be charged against and paid by licensees in such proportions as the superintendent shall deem just and reasonable, and such proportionate charges shall be added to the assessment of the other expenses incurred upon each examination. Upon written notice by the superintendent of the total amount of such assessment, the licensee shall become liable for and shall pay such assessment to the superintendent.
