In First Performance Oversight Testimony, Attorney General Racine Cites OAG Accomplishments, Calls for Increased Resources for the Office

Also Underscores Need for OAG to Serve as Independent, Objective Counsel for District

Washington, DC – Attorney General Karl A. Racine delivered testimony this week before the Council of the District of Columbia’s Committee on the Judiciary citing the Office of the Attorney General’s (OAG) many successes from Fiscal Year 2014 through the present. He further emphasized that OAG could be even better advocates for the District and its residents if provided with additional resources, and he underscored the clear need – supported by an overwhelming majority of District voters when they approved of creating an independent Attorney General – for OAG to continue to serve as the District’s chief legal voice.
