The bill authorizes a district attorney or a deputy or assistant
district attorney, in investigating a complaint alleging a violation of
consumer protection laws, to request records from a state or local
licensing authority (licensing authority) for information regarding a
person that the licensing authority regulates (regulated person) and that
is the subject of the complaint if the complaint alleges:

  • The complainant suffered damages in an amount of at least
$20,000 and the district attorney determines the amount
alleged appears to be reasonable in relation to the alleged
conduct forming the basis of the complaint; or
  • Two or more regulated persons jointly engaged in conduct
that forms the basis of the complaint.
The licensing authority shall share with, and allow inspection of
its records by, the district attorney upon receipt of such request if the
licensing authority has already determined not to take action against the
regulated person or persons.
Additionally, the bill authorizes a state licensing authority, subject
to approval by the head of the executive department in which the state
licensing authority is located, to enter into an interagency agreement with
the attorney general or the attorney general's designee for the referral of
complaints alleging violations of consumer protection laws.
