MADISON - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has been elected to serve as the Chairman of the Midwestern Region of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG).

 

"I am honored that my colleagues have selected me. As is so often true with law enforcement, together we can achieve more than individually. From school safety to election reform, NAAG is a great resource," said Van Hollen.

 

Founded in 1907, the National Association of Attorneys General serves as a key resource to assist Attorneys General and their staffs to respond effectively to emerging state and federal legal issues.

 

In his role as Chairman of the Midwestern Region Van Hollen will also serve as a member of the Executive Committee of NAAG.

The term of the Chair is one year. The Midwestern Region is comprised of ten Attorneys General representing Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.

 

In addition, Attorney General Van Hollen currently serves as a member of the NAAG Election Reform Committee.
