Source: Virginia Department of Elections. Legislators are required to report by January 18 any single donation of $1,000 or more received between January 1-12. The requirement, which became law last year, is designed to provide transparency of last-minute donations to legislators before an in-session ban on donations takes effect once the regular session of the General Assembly begins.
