When the Delaware Democrat leadership in the House and Senate decided not to bring House Bill 460, the budget smoothing bill, up for a vote, Governor Carney was NOT happy. As a result, he decided to go ahead and do it anyway. With an Executive Order! Well, not yet. That will go down at 4:30pm today. This will not go down smoothly with the Democrats in the General Assembly! Get ready to rumble! This all but assures Carney will get a Primary in 2020!
