In the past, Attorney General Opinions were issued in both “formal” and “letter” formats. The designation was intended to differentiate between matters of statewide significance (Formal) and issues with a regional impact or limited effect (Letter). As all Attorney General Opinions have the same legal effect regardless of the format in which they are issued, the “formal” designation was discontinued in 2002. Prior to 2001, certain issues were addressed in advisory letters rather than as opinions.
Opinions and Advisory Letters are displayed in separate lists by year.
