“House Democrats are pleased to support an ethics bill which includes a 100 per year aggregate cap on gifts,” said Democratic Leader David J. Toscano. “The bill is not perfect, but it is substantially better than present law, establishes some bright-line prohibitions, and will go a long way toward restoring the public’s trust in elected officials damaged by the McDonnell conviction.”
