The Michigan Department of Attorney General is established under Article V, Executive Branch of the Constitution of the state of Michigan of 1963.  The principal duties of the Attorney General include acting as legal counsel to all state departments, agencies, boards, commissions, officers and employees, and the state Legislature, and intervening in litigation when the public interest is involved.

The Michigan Department of Attorney General is a necessary and appropriate function of state government.  We recommend no cuts in the Attorney General budget at this time.
