WV Ethics Act

The West Virginia Ethics Commission was established in 1989 to administer the West Virginia Governmental Ethics Act (WV Code 6B-1-1, et seq.).

The Ethics Commission administers the Ethics Act by education public servants covered by the Act, providing information to the public, interpreting and applying the provisions in the Act, and enforcing the requirements of the Act through an investigation and complaint process.
