Massachusetts, Virginia, Texas: State Attorneys General June 12 Update

Advocacy

Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and 32 State AGs have joined together to oppose President Trump’s proposal to eliminate federal funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The coalition of AGs drafted a letter to Congress extolling the role of LSC in “help[ing] residents nationwide receive justice.”

Virginia AG Mark Herring and a coalition of 20 other AGs in a joint letter are urging House leadership to reject “anti-consumer legislation that would roll back many of the critical protections adopted in the wake of the financial crises that harmed so many hard-working Americans.” Their principal objective is defunding the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Regulatory

Texas AG Ken Paxton and 16 fellow AGs are calling for regulatory reform to protect citizens and businesses from what they see as federal government overreach. In a letter, the AGs encouraged the president to push Congress to limit the enforcement authority of federal agencies.
