GOP to end subcommittee secrecy

Virginia Republican legislators yesterday emerged from a closed door meeting to announce a little extra sunlight for the upcoming General Assembly session.  According to this Washington Post blog, GOP lawmakers have agreed to end the practice of killing bills in subcommittee without a recorded vote.

In prior sessions, bills often met their death in subcommittee meetings on unrecorded voice votes, making it difficult to track delegates’ voting records.
