After nearly three decades working on environmental, consumer, and justice issues in the state legislature, Brian Frosh of Montgomery County was sworn in as Maryland’s attorney general yesterday. The attorney general gives legal advice to the governor and the legislature, and oversees more than 450 lawyers who advise every department, board and commission in state government. This morning, as he begins his first day on the job, Attorney General Frosh agreed to take a few minutes with talk to us about the issues he will face.

WYPR Statehouse reporter Christopher Connelly was at Attorney General Frosh's swearing-in ceremony yesterday afternoon. You can read Frosh's prepared remarks for yesterday's ceremony here. The Washington Post reported on the luncheon between Frosh and Governor-elect Larry Hogan that is mentioned during our interview.
