Have a question about NAAG’s endorsement letter process? Please contact NAAG Legislative Director Ryan Greenstein at rgreenstein@naag.org or 202-326-6262.

The nation’s attorneys general determine NAAG’s legislative agenda through an endorsement letter process.  

 Through NAAG endorsement letters, attorneys general: 

  • Provide invaluable insight to the federal government.  
  • Voice their support or dissent for federal legislation and policy.  
  • Communicate recommendations or requests to industry groups or companies. 

For NAAG to endorse a legislative initiative or a specific piece of legislation, a bipartisan group of at least 36 attorneys general must submit their approval. While NAAG is a nonpartisan organization, it engages in policy advocacy only when an issue has bipartisan support from a majority of attorneys general. Learn more about our process and how we determine priorities.

H.R. 1215 provides much needed education and training for the employees most likely to be able to detect and report elder fraud and scams.

NAAG Urges Facebook to Abandon Plans to Develop Instagram Kids

It appears that Facebook is not responding to a need, but instead creating one, as this platform appeals primarily to children who otherwise do not or would not have an Instagram account.
