Jefferson City, Mo. — The newly released annual report from Attorney General Jay Nixon highlights his office’s achievements for 2007, including saving or generating $20.84 for Missouri taxpayers for every dollar appropriated to the office. That savings figure is the highest since the office began determining the ratio of dollars saved to dollars received for its annual report in 2001.
“We’ve worked diligently to make government more effective and more efficient, and our annual report reflects many of those accomplishments in 2007 on behalf of the people of Missouri,” Nixon said.
The theme of the annual report, “A Strong Voice for Missouri,” emphasizes how the Attorney General’s Office is the voice for protecting Missourians and the state in many venues. The theme is repeated in sections that demonstrate how the Attorney General’s Office has been a strong voice for consumers, for the environment, for safety, for taxpayers, for public and nonprofit interests, for families, and for good and open government.
Among the accomplishments of the office featured in the 2007 annual report are:
