Message from the President
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.

Legislative Priority
This week a Chamber-supported bill that would create a Transportation Infrastructure Investment Fund (TIIF) passed the Senate and now heads to the House for committee assignment. The bill creates a fund to help offset the cost of providing transportation-related improvements for commercial and industrial development projects, which will also help speed the process to project completion.

Timeliness is the Bridge between
Effective Regulation and Economic Development
Effective regulation and regulatory timeliness need to go hand in hand for a prosperous economy. Regulations protect public health, natural resources, property and our rights. We need rules and standards and everyone intuitively knows it. The business community seeks certainty, consistency and timely decision making to flourish as it navigates changing
markets and plans for the future.

Under the leadership of former Superintendent Dr. Tony Marchio and current Superintendent Dr. Matthew Burrows, the Appoquinimink School District undertook the task of creating a vision of what will become the model for school development—not only in Delaware, but across the country. Dr. Marchio had the vision in 2009 to create a public school, K-12
