Working collectively on their own or through the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), AGs have developed procedures and protocols so that the facts and details of an investigation in one state can quickly reach the attention of AGs and their staffs in other states.
"There are close communications and close and effective working relationships between AGs around the country, and particularly between their staffs, either directly or through NAAG," says Gerald Pappert, a member of Cozen O'Connor who was the attorney general of Pennsylvania from 2003 to 2005.
"Federal lawmakers are granting the AGs additional powers.
Recently AGS has penetrated into yet another upcoming segment which hasn't caught the eye of the other players: the CNG Rickshaw.
AGS has been able to accomplish all this without resorting to aggressive advertising tactics, diverting most of the advertising budget to either ensuring quality or caring directly for the end-user.
Liza Chuanico Bolle, RPT, at IHS of Braden River, Bradenton, Florida, a 208-bed skilled nursing facility, indicated that therapy time for a nursing home resident with TBI was shortened by six weeks after introduction of the AGS. This resident lacked enough motor control to ambulate safely in a walker without assistance.
Use of the AGS has helped this patient to assume a more upright and symmetrical position and has reduced his ambulation time over the same distance to 5 minutes.
The House committee questioned both Bedbrook and Schatzow about a statement obtained from a former AGS
technician suggesting that the testing procedure for the rooftop trees was not adequate and that damage to the trees was not reported to EPA.
In 2012, AGS
was acquired by Nippon Express USA, but continues to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary.
