Blogging is funny sometimes. You can get things wrong. When multiple sources tell you the same thing, you assume it is gold. But for the end of June in Delaware you have to be a bit cautious. That is my situation right now. I want to apologize for anyone who had angst over this. I thought, based on sources, that it was going to happen. While eating dinner tonight, I was informed there was a 1.45% deduction in state employee salaries, but this was a misread of the appropriations bill. It is NEVER my intention to put bad information out there.
I’m sitting in the lobby at Legislative Hall to a packed house. Even the House Republicans are here! Below is the current appropriations bill, House Bill #275. I haven’t had time yet to take a deep dive into it yet. Far too much going on. I’m running into people I haven’t seen in a while and catching up with the usual suspects. But I felt it was important, in the face of this budget crisis, to at least get this information out there as soon as possible.
