The House states that it will not consider any legislation today. However, here are the bills that are on the House Ready List, which will begin to be considered on Tuesday.

It also passed three resolutions.

The Senate has the following bill on their agenda, once they clean out all those pesky Representatives from the chamber:

SB 28 S. McBride AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 24 OF THE DELAWARE CODE AND CHAPTER 420 OF VOLUME 83 OF THE LAWS OF DELAWARE RELATING TO DENTISTRY AND DENTAL HYGIENE.

The following bills are on the Senate Ready List:

SB 26Constitution/Amend/2nd Leg/Voting Age/Minimum/UpdateRichardsonAN ACT CONCURRING IN A PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE V OF THE DELAWARE CONSTITUTION RELATING TO ELECTIONS.
SB 27Wages/Unpaid/Statute of Limitations/IncreaseSturgeonAN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 10 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO LIMITATION OF ACTIONS FOR WORK, LABOR, OR PERSONAL SERVICES.

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.
