The National Association of Attorneys General is very pleased to announce that the definitive work on state Attorneys General, State Attorneys General Powers and Responsibilities (Second Edition) is now available.

The second edition includes new chapters on bankruptcy and tobacco enforcement. NAAG thanks the many authors and reviewers in state Attorney General offices across the country who contributed to this book.
