Employment of special counsel by Attorney General.
The Attorney General may employ special counsel whose compensation must be fixed by the Attorney General, subject to the approval of the State Board of Examiners, if the Attorney General determines at any time prior to trial that it is impracticable, uneconomical or could constitute a conflict of interest for the legal service to be rendered by the Attorney General or a deputy attorney general. Compensation for special counsel must be paid out of:
The Reserve for Statutory Contingency Account; or
Available federal grants or a permanent fund in the State Treasury other than the State General Fund.
