HB 1224 - DIGEST


     Declares that the purpose of this act is to enable public entities on behalf of the citizens to obtain reimbursement from such employees, officers, and contractors whose criminal conduct results in payment of public money to injured parties.

     Allows the attorney general to grant a request to represent the officer, employee, or volunteer if the attorney general believes that there is a reasonable doubt whether the acts or omissions were performed in good faith and within the scope of official duties and that it is therefore in the state's interest to grant the request.
