The General Assembly returns next week. With only 11 session days remaining, there are many bills still pending. The issues discussed and voted on in the coming days will impact businesses large and small across a variety of industries. Some of which includes:
The State Chamber has been engaged in discussions regarding these proposals and others throughout the legislative session and actively communicates concerns with members of the General Assembly. We will continue to do so as the session comes to an end.
While next week’s committee meeting schedule has in large part not been announced yet, SS1 for SB 65 — the State Chamber supported Focus on Alternative Skills Training Program (FAST) Act — will be heard by the Senate Labor Committee on Wednesday, June 9 at 1pm. The bill would provide tuition assistance to Delaware residents who have obtained a high school diploma and have enrolled in an approved skills training program. The State Chamber will be in attendance to provide testimony in support of the bill, but we also encourage our members to also testify.
Also next week, Representative Peter Schwarzkopf and Senator David Sokola will talk about some of these issues and other top issues before the General Assembly at our End-of-Session Policy Conference. Click here to register.
