Attorney General’s Office Can’t Advise State Board

KSAL StaffFebruary 12, 2015

The Kansas attorney general’s office told a state board that it didn’t have enough lawyers to provide routine legal advice to the board.

In response, the Kansas Underground Utility Notification Board says it will seek free outside legal advice.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Rapp says attorney general’s office would represent the board in a specific legal matter, such as a lawsuit. But she says the office can’t provide routine legal advice because it doesn’t have the resources.

The board oversees Kansas One Call, which educates the public and fields calls about avoiding utility lines when digging. It works closely with the Kansas Corporation Commission, which regulates utilities.

The KCC says it will arrange for a lawyer to provide free representation to the board in the short term.
