Delaware

The Agenda – April 25, 2023

The House and Senate are back from their spring break and now crutch time begins. A number of bills were filed last week and we will profile a lot of them this week.

HOUSE AGENDA – The House will reconvene at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.

The House will consider resolutions that 1) recognize the Sanford School Girls Basketball State Champions; 2) recognize April 25, 2023 as Delaware Teach Children to Save Day; and 3) recognize the Month of the Military Child. I hope that latter resolution is about the children of service men or women rather than the conscription of children into our military.
