DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) -- Tuesday evening, the Iowa House voted to restrict the state attorney general's power to file, join, or sign onto out-of-state lawsuits. It's part of a budget bill.
Republican lawmakers don't like that Attorney General Tom Miller, who's a Democrat, has joined lawsuits opposing President Trump. The House measure now goes to the Senate for a vote. If it passes there, Miller would have to ask permission from the governor, the General Assembly, or the state's Executive Council before his office could join out-of-state lawsuits.
