Delaware lawmakers face late-night end to session

(AP) – Delaware lawmakers are entering the final day of this year’s legislative session with plenty of work still left to do.

While the House and Senate have passed a $4 billion operating budget for the fiscal year that starts Friday, they must still sign off on a capital budget for construction projects and a grants budget for community groups and nonprofit agencies.

Meanwhile, a controversial school redistricting plan for Wilmington backed by Gov. Jack Markell is languishing in the Senate, much to the frustration of Wilmington-area lawmakers.

House and Senate lawmakers were scheduled to convene Thursday evening and work into the early morning hours of Friday before bringing down the gavel on this year’s legislative session.
