State Chamber Update
As we get closer to the midpoint of this year’s General Assembly session, bills up for a vote this week showcase the wide range of issues the body will consider. On Wednesday there will be a vote in the Senate on a mandatory expungements bill balancing the dynamics between providing ex-offenders a second chance, including opening opportunities for employment, with public safety and employer right-to-know concerns.
Also this week will be a Senate vote on creating a transportation infrastructure investment fund that will help commercial and industrial development efforts across Delaware. In committees this week is the FAST bill that provides funding for non-degree certifications to help attract people into Delaware’s workforce, and another dealing with craft alcoholic beverages.
