Indiana House Passes Amendment Impacting The State's Attorney General


Curtis Hill would be forced to step down as Attorney General if his license was suspended for at least a month under an amendment passed by the House Monday.

The amendment’s author says this is in response to a disciplinary hearing officer’s recommendation last month of a 60-day suspension.

The amendment authored by Republican Representative Tim Wesco alters the qualifications to serve as Attorney General. Current law only requires the A.G. to have a law license and live in Indiana.

The proposed amendment says if the officeholder’s license is suspended for 30 or more days, they forfeit their position, with a replacement named by the governor.

Attorney General Curtis Hill is accused of groping four women at a party in March 2018.

Ultimately, Indiana’s Supreme Court justices will decide if Hill faces any punishment stemming from those allegations.
