With the first half of the 151st General Assembly completed, we wanted to take a moment to share with you our progress on several key issues. We share many of the same goals and values a majority of Delawareans hold, and this legislative session the General Assembly has passed or advanced many of the key initiatives we pledged to take on. Many of the issues we’ve tackled haven’t garnered headlines but nonetheless will benefit people across the state, and we want to highlight them here. read more ..read more

Here in Delaware, we are taking our own bold steps to lift up our neighbors and put our state’s economy back on track to benefit those who have sacrificed so much over the years. As chairs and co-chairs of the House and Senate Labor Committees, we have pushed back against corporate interests, and with the support of every Democrat in the General Assembly, we raised Delaware’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025, along with a $25 million tax break that will help small businesses stay afloat during our recovery from the pandemic. With the help of our General Assembly colleagues, we made unpreced ..read more

We strongly urge you to request an ESEA/ESSA assessment waiver for the state of Delaware as soon as practicable and without delay. We believe the time required for testing could be better spent by educators in continuing to provide instruction and screen students at the district and building level to inform summer intervention programs and prepare for instruction in the fall. read more ..read more

3y ago
This Labor Day will be very different from any other Labor Day. This year’s parade is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, this weekend’s news will be heavy with reports of social unrest and protest demonstrations in cities like Kenosha, WI and Portland, OR. However, those two items – Labor Day weekend and the protests – are not entirely unrelated. read more ..read more

Women House Democrats Oppose Title IX Rule Change
Delaware House Democrats
by drewitalia250@gmail.com

A safe environment in which to cultivate learning should not be a luxury; it should be an expectation. Yet, this statistic still rings true today: one in five college women are sexually assaulted. Stepping forward to report an incident of sexual assault or harassment is harrowing and shouldn’t be made any more difficult. The DOE guidelines as written will not only cause additional barriers for victims, but it may actually deter them from reporting the crime in the first place. Live hearings, cross-examination and the extremely narrow definition of harassment are just a few of the concerns we h ..read more
