A floor amendment for stricter ethics reform in the Virginia General Assembly offered by House Minority Leader Ward Armstrong received bi-partisan support and passed overwhelmingly in the House of Delgates.
The amendement was offered to HB 322 sponsored by Delegate Chris Saxman. The bill was aimed at the Democratic Party holding their annual Jefferson Jackson Day dinner during the legislative session.
The amendment sets out to broaden all events held by organizations or registered lobbyists that contribute to legislators' campaign accounts.
Delegate Kenny Alexander offered a similar amendment in the House Privileges and Elections Committee.
