RICHMOND, Va. — The author of four ethics-reform bills says a House proposal opens the way to free vacations for lawmakers.
“Travel is at the heart of what we receive, and this is like Swiss cheese,” state Sen. Chap Petersen said of the House ethics package.
The House of Delegates plan imposes a $250 limit on gifts legislators can receive from lobbyists and individuals with business before the state. The gift cap does not include travel.
