CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The House of Delegates leadership plans to focus on government accountability and integrity during the 2014 legislative session.

House leaders unveiled a platform on Sunday that includes fraud reporting and state purchasing reforms.

Several measures are aimed at the Attorney General's Office. One would require all money received by the state through settlements to go into the General Revenue Fund to be appropriated by the Legislature. Another would require a case to be assigned to outside counsel if the attorney general has a conflict of interest.

House leaders say in a news release that they also plan to evaluate the Department of Agriculture's Rural Rehabilitation Loan program and any similar programs at other state agencies.

The 60-day session begins Wednesday.
