According to Delaware Senate President Pro Tempore David McBride, the party is over on July 1st! For security and safety reasons, Legislative Hall will shut down at 1am on July 1st. If the legislators need to finish business they will be called back at 4pm later on the same day.
This was my favorite day/night of the year! According to McBride, driving can be a challenge after pulling off the infamous General Assembly all-nighter. For McBride, who would be driving
south north this should be going against beach traffic.
Yes, this was the big announcement from Senator McBride today. This launched a group of us on social media wondering if he was going to retire. Nope, just putting a halt on the all-nighters!
Typically, the last day of session is on June 30th. But because they don’t go back until late in the afternoon, the marathon session extends into July 1st. And they leave when they are done. If they don’t pass the budget (like what happened in 2017), they may stay all night and come back on a Sunday! But no more according to McBride. Meanwhile, ice cream vendors are crying foul.
