lobbying, West Virginia

State Senator Richard Ojeda introduced a bill that requires lobbyists to purchase and wear body-mounted cameras while at the Capitol.

Senate Bill 135 also prohibits lobbyists from making certain campaign contributions and places restrictions on lobbyists who are loitering in the Capitol.

The body-mounted camera video and audio recordings would be subject to inspection by the West Virginia Ethics Commission.
