State Bar of Texas statement on Attorney General opinion request
On June 14, 2019, the Attorney General Opinion Committee notified the State Bar that because the requestor is no longer in office, it is closing the file on opinion request RQ-0265-KP filed by then-president Joe K. Longley on January 22, 2019.
The State Bar’s Board of Directors heard considerable discussion in its January 18, 2019 meeting, and after that discussion, the board voted unanimously (with Mr. Longley abstaining) to reaffirm the longstanding voting structure for TYLA officers. Since January 18, 2019, there has been additional briefing developed that supports the current voting structure. As such, the State Bar did not ask the Attorney General to continue Mr. Longley’s request.
As always, the State Bar welcomes all comments, suggestions, and feedback. You can contact Executive Director Trey Apffel by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 2019-2020 President Randy Sorrels, at email@example.com or call 800-204-2222.
