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 Revenue Fund
  • The AGO decreased its FTE personnel total number for FY2018 and FY2019
  • In February 2017, the AGO voluntarily remitted $10 million to the state’s General Revenue 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 $18 million in restitution for Missouri consumers, since 2017.
  • As part of the statewide crackdown on fraud, the Attorney General’s Office has given the following back to the State of Missouri and Missouri consumers since January 2017:
