House Speaker Bill Howell on ethics commission recommendations

bill howellVirginia House of Delegates Speaker Bill Howell (R-Stafford) issued the following statement Monday on the interim recommendations of Governor Terry McAuliffe’s Commission on Integrity and Public Confidence in State Government.

“I appreciate the efforts of the Commission’s members and thank them for their service. In September, Senate Majority Leader Norment and I pledged to the people of Virginia that we would take the additional steps necessary to restore the public’s trust in light of recent events. That pledge still stands.

“Along with members of the General Assembly, I will review the Commission’s findings and recommendations. Ultimately, the responsibility to make these changes rests with the General Assembly. As I have said before, I am committed to doing what is right for Virginia.

“I fully expect to join other House leaders in announcing our proposed reforms prior to the start of the General Assembly session.”
