This section coordinates the attorney general's powers with other administrative supervision of suppliers, as well as with local prosecuting authorities. The duties of prosecuting attorneys are carried forward from the old Buyer Protection Act (former K.S.A. 50-614), with the exception of any need to file a final report upon disposition of a case.
