  2.  An order of a court of competent jurisdiction of another state, or of the District of Columbia, authorizing hospitalization of an individual by any agency of the United States shall have the same force and effect as to the individual while in this state as in the jurisdiction in which is situated the court entering the order, and the courts of the state or District of Columbia issuing the order shall be deemed to have retained jurisdiction of the individual so hospitalized for the purpose of inquiring into his or her mental condition and of determining the necessity for continuance of his or her hospitalization, as is provided in subsection 1 of this section with respect to individuals ordered hospitalized by the courts of this state.  Consent is hereby given to the application of the law of the state or District of Columbia in which is located the court issuing the order for hospitalization with respect to the authority of the chief officer of any hospital or institution operated in this state by any agency of the United States to retain custody, transfer, conditional release or discharge the individual hospitalized.
