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.
