Virginia Governor Proposing Changes to Ethics Reform Bill
Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to offer amendments to the ethics reform bill passed last month. HB 2070 creates a $100 per gift cap to replace the current $250 aggregate limit lawmakers must abide by.
Gov. McAuliffe announced he would like to see a $100 aggregate limit to prevent legislators from accepting repeated gifts from lobbyists.
A legislative session is scheduled for April 15 for lawmakers to consider McAuliffe’s amendments and vetoes.
