It is now official! House Bill 60, filed today, would do what House Bill 50 did in the Delaware 148th General Assembly. Time to rally the troops again and get the show on the road! While on its face, folks could expect business as usual, things could change and very fast. Word on the street is already forming about something happening very soon which could turn this bill into the biggest bill of the legislative season. I would pay VERY close attention to what happens with this bill. Sponsored by State Rep. John Kowalko and Senator Dave Lawson. Additional sponsors include State Reps. Kim Williams, Paul Baumbach, Deb Hudson, Helene Keeley, Sean Lynn, Trey Paradee, Jeff Spiegelman, and David Wilson, and Senators Margaret Rose-Henry and Gerald Hocker. We have six House Dems, three Republican House reps, one Senate Dem and two Senate Republicans. Let the fireworks begin (again)!
I am pretty sure it goes without saying, email your State Rep and Senator NOW in support of this bill. Also give State Rep. Earl Jaques a holler asking him to put this on the agenda for the next House Education Committee meeting when they get back after their JFC hearing break at the end of February.
