Legislators push to get bills passed as end of session nears

DOVER, Del. –  We are quickly approaching the end of Legislative session in Dover and there’s still some work to get done.

Some legislation that was mentioned on the docket is bill management that would give the public time to look over legislation before it’s voted on, a bill to reinstate capital punishment for convicted murderers, as well as a budget smoothing bill.

Representative Bryan Shupe discussed a bill he released Tuesday that would allow low-income families to apply for a grant for filtration systems on their drinking water.

“There are big challenges to Delaware’s water quality, and this is a process that is going to take a lot of money and a lot of time, but we want to make sure that in the interim we don’t forget about the low income families that can’t afford to do something now,” said Shupe.

Lawmakers will have ten more days of session to pass legislation. Session ends June 30.
