The attorney general is authorized to appear for the state and
prosecute and defend all actions and proceedings, civil and criminal, in
which the state is a party or is interested when required to do so by the
governor. In these circumstances, the bill allows the attorney general to
also expend funds, manage staff, and perform other administrative
functions essential for the operation of a district attorney's office. If it is
essential during this time for the attorney general to hire personnel, while
the attorney general has the ultimate authority regarding hiring decisions,
a committee consisting of the attorney general, a representative from the
Colorado district attorneys' council, and the highest ranking attorney or
official at the district attorney's office shall make recommendations
regarding hiring decisions that the attorney general must consider.
