McAuliffe Wants Family Added to Va. Ethics Bill

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe wants lobbyists to disclose what they spend on gifts to lawmakers' families.

The governor amended an ethics bill Monday that passed the General Assembly in the wake of a gifts scandal that led to corruption charges against former Gov. Bob McDonnell.

McAuliffe's proposed changes, which the General Assembly still has to approve, would require lobbyists to report what they spend on gifts and entertainment events for both lawmakers and their families. The bill initially proposed by the General Assembly only required lobbyists to report what they spent on lawmakers directly.

The governor did not make any other substantive changes to the ethics bill, which critics have said would still allow the type of behavior that ensnarled McDonnell in controversy.
