JUNEAU, Alaska -- Attorney General Dan Sullivan has been on the job for months, but he is just now going through confirmation hearings.
Sullivan needs the legislature's approval to continue as the state's top legal advisor. Thursday the House Judiciary Committee started the process.
The committee had good things to say about Sullivan and nothing is expected to stand in the way of his full confirmation.
Sullivan took the stand and faced mostly praise from lawmakers.
But they did have a few questions. Among them, legislators want to know how Sullivan plans to fight the federal government when it encroaches on the state's rights.
