Attorney General Opinions

The Attorney General’s Office is authorized by statute to issue written legal opinions only to constitutional executive officers, state agencies, bodies of the state legislature, and attorneys for local governments or pension funds. These opinions do not generally have legally binding effect as a court decision, but they can be helpful to inform the actions of local public officials. Some opinions are formally “published”, while others are not. People may access formal published opinions in the ways set forth below.
