MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state’s top law enforcer has been chosen as the President-Elect of the National Association of Attorneys General.
Wisconsin’s J.B. Van Hollen was elected at the group’s recent annual meeting. That’s after he became the vice president a year ago.
The association conducts policy research, conducts training, and helps state Justice Departments coordinate their handling of various state and federal issues.
Van Hollen says the national group has served Wisconsinites in a variety of ways, and he looks forward to his new leadership role and, “other opportunities in the interest of justice.”
Maryland’s attorney general, Doug Gansler, will be the group’s president for the next year.
