Failed Senate
City, county employee investigation
CITY AND COUNTY OFFICERS – Amends existing law to authorize investigations and actions against city and county officers by the attorney general.

RS30851 / H0390

The Attorney General has concurrent jurisdiction to investigate and, if necessary, prosecute elected county officials for state crimes committed when acting in their official capacity. This legislation expands the Attorney General's jurisdiction to include elected city officials. The purpose of this legislation is to take advantage of the expertise the Attorney General's Office has developed for investigating and prosecuting cases involving public corruption.

This legislation causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local government nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for the state of local government therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
