Pursuant to Senate Bill 416 passed by the 86th Legislature, the Attorney General’s Office may provide legal counsel to political subdivisions (cities and counties) subject to a declared state of disaster on issues related to disaster mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery applicable to the area subject to the disaster declaration.

This form is not intended for general legal matters unrelated to a declared disaster.

Under Government Code § 418.193, the Attorney General’s Office may only provide legal counsel to certain designated officials. If you are not an official designated in the statute, the Attorney General’s Office is unable to provide you with legal counsel.
