Del. Governor Speaks To Wilmington Rotary Club

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell is talking about how to create jobs, improve Delaware's economy and strengthen public schools.
 
Those were among the topics the governor planned to touch on Thursday at a luncheon speech to the Wilmington Rotary Club.
 
State lawmakers, meanwhile, are continuing to review Markell's proposed $423.5 million capital budget for construction projects, equipment upgrades and economic development, and transportation improvements.
 
Markell also has proposed a $3.7 billion operating budget for the fiscal year starting July 1. That proposal includes about $7 million for new initiatives, including $3.3 million to expand mental health services in public schools and $2.2 million for after-school and summer programs to keep at-risk youth out of trouble.
