The Forum was honored to host three Attorneys General, Peter F. Kilmartin, Rhode Island, Sean D. Reyes, Utah, and George Jessup, Connecticut, who discussed the natural, appropriate, and healthy tension in government between States’ rights and Federal powers. They presented cases where Attorneys General (AGs) played important roles in balancing Federal and State powers to address key issues. They explained that the Attorneys General (AGs) play a non-partisan role in enforcing state laws, and also have significant authority act in service to the broad public interest. As a result, the States are able to craft better, stronger, more equitable laws with guidance from the State AGs, they said.
