Welcome back to the Vote Tracker after a lengthy six week Joint Finance Committee break. The House and Senate were busy this week, as you can tell from all the yellow highlight on the chart below. The yellow highlight indicates new action this week on a bill, whether that action be releasing a bill from committee to the floor, or placing that bill in another committee, or a vote on a bill on the floor of the House or Senate.
The highlight this week was the House passing both parts of the Delaware Marijuana Control Act. Congratulation and many thanks are due to the bill’s House sponsor Representative Ed Osienski, who worked tirelessly to get these bills passed, not only this week, but for the last few years. If we had such awards, he is the MVP of the legislative session so far.
The chart above lists all the legislation of interest during this session. We will update it every Friday during the session. We do not care about license plates. Resolutions honoring or approving of something generally do not make this chart. What we do follow are bills of a progressive or liberal interest from a policy perspective, or conversely, bills that the fascist Republican Party wants to advance to take away your rights.2023.Delaware.General.Assembly.Legislation.Chart_.3.10.23pdf
A link to the specific legislation is provided if you move your mouse over the Bill Number. A link to the Blue Delaware post that covers the bill is provided on the far left. In the second column on the right, we will provide the bill’s current status and whether or not it has passed a chamber of the General Assembly.
The chart is divided into several groups:
- Passed One House – These are the bills that are likely to see action in the last two weeks.
- Out of Committee – Some of these bills might get passed through the House and Senate over the last two weeks if they get on consent lists.
- Still in Committee – Time is running out for these bills. Most of these will not pass.
- Passed Bills – self explanatory.
- Defeated Bills – same.
