Missouri State Senate

Senate Committee Substitute

SCS/SB 109 - This act provides that when the legal counsel of a public higher education institution conducts the investigation, defense, negotiation, or compromise of a claim covered by the State Legal Expense Fund, the Attorney General retains exclusive discretion regarding the settlement of the claim, and payments for any claim shall not be made from the Fund without the approval of the Attorney General. When the Attorney General does not approve a settlement offer then the Attorney General shall assume responsibility of the defense of the claim against the public higher education institution from that point forward.
