Virginia Commission on Ethics Holds First Meeting
The inaugural meeting of the Commission to Ensure Integrity and Public Confidence in State Government was held this week in Richmond. Gov. Terry McAuliffe assembled the commission amid recent political scandals involving state government officials, including the conviction of former governor Bob McDonnell on corruption charges.
The commission will focus on issues involving gifts, conflicts of interest, disclosure, oversight and enforcement, and public service restrictions. Congressional redistricting may also be on the agenda.
The governor has requested a report from the commission by December 1.
