OAG-Introduced Legislation

Strengthening Protections for District Consumers

Consumer Protection Clarification and Enhancement Act of 2017
Introduced by the Attorney General via Chairman Mendelson

This legislation updates the Consumer Protection Procedures Act (CPPA), the District’s general consumer protection law. The bill is designed to update the CPPA to reflect best practices from other states’ consumer protection laws, making it easier for the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) to protect consumers in the District from fraud and other abuses.

Protecting our Democracy through Campaign Finance Reform

Campaign Finance Transparency and Accountability Amendment Act of 2017
Introduced by the Attorney General via Chairman Mendelson

Because voters are tired of the appearance of impropriety, OAG has introduced legislation that strengthens the District’s campaign-finance laws in three ways: 1) ending pay-to-play politics; 2) making political donations transparent; and 3) creating a “bright line” between candidates and Political Action Committees or PACs.
