This week was relatively quiet for legislation impacting the business community. Of note was the House passage of HB200, the Clean Water bill. It provides significant investment in water infrastructure projects throughout Delaware, including addressing flooding and sewer issues and increasing Delaware’s clean water supply. The State Chamber has been an advocate for this legislation as it has appeared in various forms over the last few years. We are pleased with its passage. It now goes on to the Senate.
The General Assembly is now on Easter Break and will return April 20. The minimum wage bill (SB15) will be heard in the House Economic Development committee that week.
