Proposed Bill in West Virginia Requires Lobbyists to Wear Body Cameras
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.
