ATTORNEY GENERAL LUTHER STRANGE BECOMES NEW CHAIRMAN OF
REPUBLICAN ATTORNEYS GENERAL ASSOCIATION
AG Strange to Lead Group Representing Majority of Nation’s Attorneys General
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is the new chairman of
the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA).
AG Strange officially assumed the chairmanship of RAGA during the national
association’s meeting this weekend in Austin, Texas.
“I’m honored to be named chairman of a group that The Wall Street Journal last week
hailed as ‘conservatism’s last line of defense,'” said Attorney General Strange. “I look
forward to leading my fellow conservative AGs as we join the Trump administration in
peeling back layers of regulatory overreach that have stifled the American economy and
have made a mockery of constitutional limitations on federal power. For the last six
years we have played defense. We’ve stood against the tide of federal regulations and
stopped the ones we could such as the EPA’s war on coal-fired energy and Waters of
the US. Now it’s time to turn that tide.”
The Republican Attorneys General Association has risen in membership to 29
Republican attorneys general from across America, picking up three new members after
the 2016 elections.
Attorney General Strange succeeds Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette as
chairman of RAGA for the term of November 2016 to November 2017.
