Rhode Island AG Meets With Obama Transition Team

The Providence Journal reported that on Dec. 18, Attorney General Patrick C. Lynch became Rhode Island's first Democratic official to meet with President-elect Barack Obama's transition team in Washington, DC. Lynch, who is head of the National Association of Attorneys General, traveled to the capitol with several of his colleagues for a daylong meeting with the transition team at the Department of Justice. Lynch said he was looking forward to working with the new administration, and hopes the relationship leads to limits on federal preemption of state laws, a doctrine which was expanded under the Bush administration.
