Senate and House Committees on Standards of Conduct.  Requires each house to establish a Committee on Standards of Conduct and expands the Committee from three to five members to include a retired justice or judge and an attorney experienced in ethics issues. The Committee is authorized to issue advisory opinions, which, like the opinions of the Attorney General, may be relied upon as a defense against charges of violations of the General Assembly Conflicts of Interests Act ( 30-100 et seq. of the Code of Virginia).
