The attorney general is the constitutional, statewide elected official who acts as the attorney for the state of Texas. The Attorney General performs a variety of functions including collecting court-ordered child support, enforcing state consumer protection laws, and administering the state’s Crime Victims’ Compensation Fund. The attorney general also serves as legal counsel to boards and agencies of state government, issues legal opinions when requested by authorized requesters, and sits as an ex-officio member of various state committees and commissions. He defends against challenges to state laws and defends both state agencies and individual employees of the state when they are sued. The attorney general files civil and criminal suits upon referral by other state agencies and, in some circumstances, has original jurisdiction to prosecute violations of the law without a referral from another agency.
