Secretary of the Commonwealth; centralized filing of disclosure statements; establishment of searchable database. Centralizes the filing of economic interest disclosure statements in the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Currently only state officers and employees file such statements with the Secretary; local officers and employees file with the clerk of the locality, members of the Senate file with the Clerk of the Senate, and members of the House of Delegates file with the Clerk of the House. In addition, the bill requires the Secretary of the Commonwealth to establish and maintain a searchable electronic database comprising all disclosure statements and available to the public through the Internet. The bill also provides for civil penalties for late and incomplete disclosure filings to be assessed and collected by the Secretary. Read the Bill »
