RICHMOND, Va. (WUSA9) -- Virginia Attorney General released a new ethics policy for all employees of his Office, including himself.

Mark R. Herring said the policy will 'conform closely to the executive order signed' by Governor McAuliffe. With this policy, all the employees will be prohibited from soliciting anything of value or accepting any gift over $100 in value.

In a statement, Herring said, "Virginians deserve to know their public officials are serving them with the highest levels of integrity and without undue influence. Our gift ban explicitly puts in place a high standard for the first time, so the public trust can be restored in the Office of Attorney General, as well as among state employees covered under the Governor's order."
