Virginia: Proposals look to change recall law

There is some pushes for changes to Virginia's recall law, with progressives looking to raise the signature requirement for recalls to 30% of turnout and try to tighten the malfeasance standard to make it harder to get on the ballot. The proposal would have gotten rid of the odd recall trial law, so a recall would be much more likely to succeed. Republican recall proponents are looking to make it easier, though it is not clear that there are any efforts to get rid of the malfeasance standard.
