Morrisey announced a new office policy that bans trinkets -- key chains, pillboxes, magnets and other items -- imprinted with the attorney general's name. Morrisey said he also wouldn't put his name on educational materials published by the attorney general's office.
"I intend to start with dismantling the incumbency self-protection tools," Morrisey said Monday.
The attorney general said he plans to support legislation that would limit West Virginia's attorney general to two consecutive four-year terms. There's currently no limit. The change requires a constitutional amendment and voter approval.
Morrisey plans to propose legislation that would require state agencies to solicit competitive bids for outside lawyers.
Morrisey said he would ask state lawmakers to pass a bill that requires state employees to wait a year before they could take a job with an organization that received a grant the worker administered.
He also plans to propose legislation to prohibit public officials from using their name on "publicly funded broad-based" advertising during an election year.
The attorney general promised never to use his state vehicle in a parade. "That is a bad practice," Morrisey said. "It will come to an end."
