The Act empowers city and county attorneys or solicitors-general to file an action to abate a public nuisance or a nuisance that is created by unlawful sexual or drug-related activity. Prior law provided that only a district attorney could bring such an action. The Act also provides that the Code section relating to drug- related nuisances is cumulative of other remedies and is not to be construed to repeal existing remedies for drug-related nuisances. The Act also empowers city and county attorneys and solicitors-general to civilly prosecute any public nuisance.
