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.

Today, @NatlAssnAttysGn endorsed my bipartisan Bankruptcy Venue Reform Act. It's time to stop letting big corporations run across the country in search of a friendly court to file bankruptcy.

State attorneys general around the country are actively pursuing significant antitrust enforcement actions on behalf of consumers in their respective states.
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. The bill also provides a mechanism for vigorous monitoring of elder fraud, provides information on such schemes to the public, and coordinates reporting with law enforcement authorities. For these reasons, we strongly urge the Senate to take action and pass H.R. 1215.
As Congress once again considers antitrust reform measures that will have significant impacts on our citizens and business communities for years to come, we encourage you to enhance the antitrust enforcement capabilities of the states, in addition to federal agencies. We thank you for your leadership on this important matter.
Our comments are consistent with the sense of Congress, which requires that regulations “to the greatest extent practicable… collect information in a form and manner that is reasonably designed to generate a database that is highly useful to… law enforcement agencies…” NDAA § 6402(8)(C).
LSC funding has also fostered public-private partnerships between legal aid
organizations and private firms and attorneys across the country which donate their
time and skills to assist residents in need. Nationwide, 132 independent nonprofit
legal aid programs rely on this federal funding to provide services to nearly two
million of our constituents on an annual basis.
