It also passed three resolutions.

Here are the roll call votes in the Senate yesterday. The Senate passed House Bill 25, which makes your $300 Covid Relief Check you got last year tax free on your 2022 federal taxes. The bill already passed the House so it now heads to Governor Carney for his signature. The Senate also passed Senate Bill 29, the State Employee Benefits Consolidation Act, which I will have a post on later today.
