Hearings of Nov. 17, 1980 and Nov. 25, 1980.
The subject of today's joint hearing of the Assembly and Senate Judiciary Committees is the authority of the Attorney General to investigate and bring actions against religious corporations. Earlier this year, the Legislature enacted SB 1493 which will become operative on June 1, 1981 and which will narrow the AG's powers in this area. The purpose of this hearing is to determine whether, under the new law, the AG will retain adequate powers relative to religious corporations or if further legislation is needed.
