Delaware Legislature Adjourns Sine Die after All-Night Fight
An unanticipated, overnight fight over a minimum wage hike prolonged the adjournment of Delaware’s Legislature until after 8 a.m. Sunday.
The $816.3 million bond bill passed along mostly party lines after a compromise had been reached that will allow workers under age 18 to be paid up to 50 cents below the minimum wage.
Other notable bills that passed include a $16.8 million tax decrease for casinos and $500 bonuses for current state employees and pensioners.
The next two-year session will convene in January.
