GIVING BACK TO MISSOURI

 

The state of Missouri faces economic difficulties that require all in government to look for ways to increase effectiveness and cinch the belt. The Attorney General’s Office (distinct from Missouri Office of Prosecutorial Services, over which it has no day-to-day oversight) has joined those efforts in several ways:

  • At the conclusion of FY2017 the AGO returned $130,447 to the state’s General Reserve Fund
  • The AGO actually decreased its FTE personnel total number for FY2018
  • In February 2017, the AGO voluntarily remitted $10 million to the state’s General Reserve Fund after a consumer protection settlement agreement with Moody’s Corporation, Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., and Moody’s Analytics, Inc.
  • AGO consumer mediators have obtained over $8 million in restitution for Missouri consumers
  • As part of the statewide crackdown on fraud, the Attorney General’s Office has obtained $14,444,689.75 in judgments and settlements to give back to the State of Missouri and Missouri consumers since January 2017:
