Attorney General Patrick Morrisey held a press conference this morning outlining the accomplishments of his first 100 days in office. Morrisey gave his administration a B-plus so far, and said it would not receive an A until there were “meaningful changes” to the state’s business environment. Look for a blog post on that press conference soon.

- Since taking office, Morrisey has complained about the lack of modern technology in his office. The phone systems are antiquated, some don’t have working voicemail, the computers are old, there’s no docket management system for lawyers to use and no effective way to keep track of attorneys’ billable hours. A bill passed by the Legislature last week would take $7.46 million from the Morrisey’s Consumer Protection Fund and distribute it elsewhere in the state budget, but also would give the Attorney General’s Office funding to upgrade its technology.
