South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley to Deliver Keynote Address at Alcohol Law and Policy Conference

ALEXANDRIA, VA – South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley, president-elect of the National Association of Attorneys General, will deliver the keynote address at the Center for Alcohol Policy (CAP) Eighth Annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference to be held September 9 – 11, 2015, at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Illinois. This annual event brings together a wide range of experts in the field of alcohol law – including state regulators, attorneys general, legislators, public health leaders, educators and industry officials – to discuss and debate current alcohol laws and policies.

AGMartyJackley-thumbnailSince taking office in 2009, Attorney General Jackley has been committed to fighting crime, strengthening public safety and making South Dakota a safer place to live. Now serving his second term, Attorney General Jackley continues to implement programs aimed at protecting the citizens of South Dakota. To that end, he has worked to expand South Dakota’s 24/7 Alcohol Sobriety and Monitoring Program across the state and nation, which has proven successful in reducing the likelihood for alcohol re-offenses.

Attorney General Jackley, who will become the president of the National Association of Attorneys General in June, will provide conference attendees with a better understanding of the role of state attorneys general in policy debates over alcohol and the importance of policies that safeguard against the abuse of alcohol.

In addition to the keynote address, the Law and Policy Conference will offer a variety of sessions addressing current topics in alcohol law and policy with expert presenters and panelists.
