Consumer protection to "evolve" under new Attorney General

Posted: Updated:

Newly sworn in Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has big plans for the office, including changes to the consumer protection division. 

"I think the consumer protection division need to evolve a little bit," said Morrisey on Monday. "By that I mean we need to be better in providing compliance programs to regulated individuals and businesses in our state."

That will translate into more predictability and fairness for businesses, according to Morrisey.

Morrisey will first bring in new personnel to the office.  Several of the attorneys from the McGraw administration have left the office. 

The new employees will work on those compliance programs.

A plan for the first 100 days of the new Morrisey will be finalized in the coming days.
