A public hearing and a vote by lawmakers are the only things keeping the Attorney General's Office from entering into personal services contracts. Today senators Ray Tenorio and Robert Klitzkie introduced a measure that would amend a current law prohibiting such contracts.

Currently Public Law 27-106 only allows certain government entities to enter into personal services contracts. The Attorney General is hoping the legislation will pass to bring more attorneys on board. AG Douglas Moylan says the bill is a good start toward creating the necessary relationship between himself and the Legislature.

Previously two Superior Court judges deemed several personal services contracts entered into at the AG's Office's illegal.
