Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Solicitation of contributions; enforcement; penalties. Authorizes the Attorney General, any attorney for the Commonwealth or the attorney for any city, county or town to bring an action in the name of the Commonwealth when they have reason to believe that any charitable or civic organization, professional fund-raising counsel or professional solicitor has operated or is about to operate in violation of the laws governing charitable solicitations. Current law authorizes such actions when they have reason to believe such organizations or individuals are currently operating in violation of the laws governing charitable solicitations. The bill also provides for the separate award of attorney’s fees in actions brought to enforce the chapter. The fees, if awarded, will be paid into the state or local general fund.
