Both Marijuana bills advanced out of their respective committees and are now waiting either on some nefarious reassignment to a Pete-controlled committee for burial or other shenanigans, or they will be considered on the House floor when the House comes back from the six week break for Joint Finance Committee hearings.

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.
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.
