The Vote Tracker lists the bills introduced, debated, passed and signed during the current legislative session that are of progressive interest. We do not care about license plates, town charters (unless they allow Corporations to vote), technical corrections, or the annual changes to the Delaware Corporation Law. Further, resolutions honoring or approving of something generally do not make this chart. What we do follow are bills of a progressive or liberal interest from a policy perspective, or conversely, bills that the fascist Republican Party wants to advance to take away your rights.

Sponsored by Rep. Ed Osienski and Sen. Trey Paradee, House Bill 408 would create a pathway for currently existing medical marijuana retailers to obtain a temporary conversion license, enabling them to legally sell adult-use recreational marijuana while still maintaining their medical operations. “As Delaware moves closer to the launch of recreational marijuana sales, it’s important that we continue exploring and implementing policies that will bolster the program’s success and support both new and existing retailers,” said Rep. Osienski. “Our experienced compassio ..read more

Defendants charged with specific felony offenses who pose a clear and convincing risk to public safety would no longer be eligible for pre-trial release under legislation passed unanimously by the Delaware Senate on Wednesday. “Six years ago, I helped to lead the charge to move our state away from its reliance on cash bail for low-level offenses because it was the right thing to do,” said Senate Majority Leader Bryan Townsend, the prime sponsor of SB 11S. “Protecting our neighbors and our communities from people accused of some of the most violent crimes is also the right thing to do, and ..read more

The Senate passed SB 11S and SB 12, which would address bail provisions and what crimes would be exempt from permitting bail. House Bills 281 and 282 are doing that ping pong thing between the House and Senate, where they already passed the House unanimously and then got amended and passed in the Senate. So both bills are back in the House again for final passage. The bills are part of the RISE Delaware state retiree hubabaloo, where House Bill 281 will remove Medicare Advantage as an option for state pensioners, and House Bill 282 would reform the composition of the State Employee B ..read more
