Committee on Government Lawyers completes state agency Web site summaries for the ISBA

Earlier this year the Committee on Government Lawyers completed a project to summarize the websites of various state agencies for the ISBA's state agency Web site portion of its Research Links sub-site. Although a number of state agency websites had previously been summarized by the ISBA, approximately 28 agency sites did not have content summaries available on the Research Links sub-site. The Committee on Government Lawyers provided summaries for the remaining agency Web sites. The Committee hopes these summaries will be of assistance to those needing information on these agencies.
