State attorneys general are one of a handful of state constitutional executive officials, acting as the states’ chief legal officers. As such, attorneys general serve as counselors to state government agencies and legislatures, and as representatives of the public. AGs are involved in a variety of legal and policy matters on behalf of their states, including antitrust, consumer protection, regulation of charities and the environment, health care, labor laws and criminal justice reform.  Decisions that AGs make in these and other areas can have national consequences and impact citizens across state lines.
