2018 House Bill 6553: Empower legislature to intervene in legal challenges to state laws

To authorize and empower the state legislature, including either the House or Senate on their own, to intervene in any court of this state whenever they deem it necessary to protect a right or interest of this state, or of that body. The bill is reportedly intended to allow the incoming Republican legislature to pursue the legal defense of previously passed laws it favors should an incoming Democratic Attorney General, Secretary of State or Governor choose not to defend a particular law in court.
