The last day for the General Assembly is Saturday, June 30th, so there are 8 working days left in the Delaware General Assembly. All session long, we have been keeping track of important and priority legislation for liberals and progressives in Delaware. We have also grouped them by subject category (and already covered the bolded subjects): 1) Voting Rights/ Elections; 2) Civil Rights/Discrimination; 3) Education; 4) Gun Safety and Control; 5) Taxes/ Budget; 6) Healthcare and Insurance; 7) Jobs, Economics and Consumer Protection; 8) Drug Control; 9) Criminal Justice; 10) Government Reform and 11) Environment.
Today we focus on the bills in the Criminal Justice category.
As you can see, we already have a lot of priorities passed already, including Representative J.J. Johnson’s criminal justice reform bills. I would have made either defeating the Death Penalty Restoration Act or passing Rep. Sean Lynn’s Death Penalty Prevention Act a priority, but it looks like the Restoration Act is going nowhere in the Senate.
I would like to see Greg Lavelle’s SB197 passed. It already passed the Senate, and it should be passed along with HB110.
