The House Ethics Committee rebuked Rep. David B. McKinley on Wednesday for ignoring the panel’s advice to remove his name from an engineering firm he founded decades before he was first elected to Congress.

The committee found the West Virginia Republican had ignored guidance to change the firm’s name, McKinley & Associates, which he founded in the 1981.
