(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania's attorney general is preparing an email that will outline what duties she plans to perform once her law license suspension takes effect.

Chuck Ardo, spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane, said Tuesday the email to her staff will also be released to the public.

The first-term Democrat's license was put on indefinite, temporary suspension by the state Supreme Court last month after she was arraigned on criminal charges for allegedly leaking secret grand jury material to a reporter and lying about it.

The court made the suspension take effect in 30 days, so her first day under suspension will be Thursday.

Ardo says a senior staff meeting to discuss the situation was postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday morning after several senior attorneys were unable to attend.
