RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A new advocacy group claiming nearly 20 nonprofits is taking a hard look at the General Assembly.

Called Transparency Virginia, the coalition says it intends to track how accessible the Legislature is this session.

Coalition members will do that by focusing on meeting notices, recording of votes in committees and ensuring that all bills get a full hearing.

Among the coalition members are the League of Women Voters of Virginia and the Virginia Coalition for Open Government.

Organizers said their news conference on the eve of the 2015 session gives lawmakers fair warning.
