National Association of Attorneys General
2019 Sign-On Archive
Sign on letters or comments are policy-oriented documents sent to members of Congress, congressional committees or federal agencies expressing the viewpoint of the attorneys general signatories. Because NAAG is a nonpartisan organization, sign-on letters must have at least one sponsor from each political party before they can be distributed to all attorney general offices for consideration. If a document reaches 36 attorneys general signatures, it becomes NAAG policy. Only NAAG sign on letters and NAAG comments are posted to the NAAG website.
